    Re: Beads/Pearls?

    Did you look up the definitions? Beads are anything that can be strung. They can be plastic or ceramic or stone or crystal or anything else. Pearls are not considered "beads."

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
