I picked this succulent up without a tag recently. It is still very small but I did a little research and it looks like a crassula rupestris or a crassula perforata or the Crossbreed they call "baby necklace". Does anyone have more experience to help me ID this plant?

Yes, it's a Crassula. Likely C. perforata. 'Rupestris' has even thicker, plumper leaves. At least mine do.
I garden for the pollinators.

Looks like String of Buttons (Crassula perforata) to me too!

For comparison, one photo in the database of Baby's Necklace (Crassula perforata 'Giant Pagoda')
