Right now my local Kohls store has faux pearls at 40% off (I think this varies by store). I used my $10 coupon (the one that seems to come every few months in the mail) and bought a 60" strand for $2.25. They have other styles as well. I'm on my phone, so can't do finds, but here's a link: http://m.kohls.com/product/prd.....RRWidgetID

Not long ago, Angie shared that she is wearing her pearls again and included a film lip (fun!) of how to tie a long strand. I can't find that thread/blog post, so someone please chime in if you know where to find it! UPDATED with link: http://youlookfab.com/2010/11/.....of-pearls/

I also found this blog with other ways to wear a long strand: http://www.stylishpetite.com/2.....l.html?m=1
