which colour for which pearls?
I bought 2 shades of beaders secret.

Originally I was thinking pink string for my white ripples and blue string for my akoyas but the akoyas aren't happening yet.

So do you think I should do pink and restring my multicolour rope and use the blue with my white ripples?

Do you think rose gold findings will look good with the blue beaders secret?

Added poll Smile

RE: which colour for which pearls?
I'm not a fan of contrasting silk/thread when restringing. I usually try to match it was close as possible, or use a lighter shade of the same color line so the pearls are the focus not the silk, which can be distracting to the viewer. Are your pearls silver or have they been pinked? This may help you decide which of these colors you want to use.
I have used the sky blue on my baby blue akoyas and it looks great. These did have a prominent pink overtone. I am also a fan of shell which I've use many times on creamy/peachy/ copper pearls or multi color strands. If you are going to invest in more beaders secret, shell may coordinate better with rose gold.

RE: which colour for which pearls?
I would use white. This isn't the type of strand I would use coloured thread for, personally.

RE: which colour for which pearls?
Ya I wasn't really going for huge contrast but looking at the light box photos you tend to forget they're actually white pearls
