Pearl adhesive

What sort of adhesive do you all use to glue on half drill pearls
and stones? I’ve been using epoxy but if it yellows, I may regret
that choice. Deb - in the very windy midwest

I would say 2-ton epoxy, because that’s what I use. If you’re
worried about yellowing, just make sure none of it is visible ( if
it’s possible)

speaking of pearls, is there a source that sells freshwater pearls
with holes big enough for the standard headpin? or must you
always drill your own. lynn

Lynn, sometimes, you can find medium sized white ones with large
enough whole to take 22 gauge wire. (Every second or third works.)
When I hit on a batch like this, I test all. Otherwise I drill
them.
