Freshwater Potato Pearls

Tissue-nucleated pearls can grow freely in all directions. Potato pearls are short ovals that are drilled vertically (the shortest direction). The slight out-of-round shape gives a larger look, with a more organic feel.

Sold as temporary strung 36-40cm 14-16 inches (approx) strands.  PLEASE NOTE:  The beading hole sizes for pearls is traditionally much smaller than for gemstone/semiprecious beads as the most popular traditional stringing method is to use silk thread.  Holes are approx. between 0.3-0.5mm.  The industry standard for measuring pearls is in millimetres through their round diameter - perpendicular to the axis of the drill hole.
