Lemon Drops

I've had these beautiful golden yellow citrine beads for a while and I haven't been too sure what to do with them. I knew I wanted to make something with them that would be great for summer, the color reminds me of bright sunshine. I had previously made a maching set and I realy liked it so I knew I wanted to make another one.
What I had a hard time with was these TINY pearls. They're only about 1mm and so hard to work with. They're so tiny that I would get one side of the wire wrapped on and while wrapping the other side the pearl would shatter. I'm not 100% sure that they're working in these, they kind of dissapear. I'm thinking about replacing them with my plain 2mm silver beads. Right now I'm wishing I had some 2mm pearls
