Loose pearl supplier?


#1

Does anyone know of a source for high quality loose 6-7.5 mm pearls?
I want to get a few in the gray, silver, pale lilac black and white
color range for some rings I am working on. I have checked out
American pearl and other online suppliers as well as eBay and Etsy
but thought someone on Ganoksin might know of a non advertised
source.

I do not want to buy a whole string as I want to get a few of better
qualityrather than a string of inferior ones. I have been educating
myself about pearl types and how their value is determined, but
Luster is most important to me. Of lesser importance is roundness,
and whether pearls are Akoya, freshwater, etc. Drilled, not drilled,
or half drilled okay.

Call Maurice Goldman for pearls. They’re very nice, carry quality
material and are happy to work with independent craftsmen.

Stratura in Uxbridge, MA

I have bought from them for several years and can say they have an
outstanding selection of size, color and quality. Ask for Mary. She
also teaches classes on stringing pearls.
