    I finally got to order my own book today ... SO delighted to have this to look forward to! I've asked Anna to sign my copy, and hope to get Sheri to sign mine as well, somewhere down the road (Thanks for the extra help and guidance during ordering, Anna!!!)

    My book arrived (it was sitting with a neighbor) as it was delivered earlier this week while I was out of town. It is wonderful! I especially enjoyed the photography and the interviews. Thank you for making this available to us!

    Hello PG Friends.
    Here is the today pearl photo. This is a double strand necklace with fake pearls, but doesn't really matter indeed. Could be done with cultured pearls. A double box clasp seen from underside that was most in fashion in the 50' - 70'. It goes with blue and red paste clasp that one could change to match outfit.
    A lot of attention was given to clasps in these years, that's why you can still find vintage clasps (and I wrote a page on vintage clasps). It seems it was mainly found in America and I describe how Joan Rivers and Kenneth Jay Lane and Monet had their own different ideas on how to change the clasp on bracelets and neckaces.

    Anna, I have to say not only have I been enjoying my wonderful book...It was on my bench, but it has moved to a prime coffee table location! If anyone is on the fence about ordering, it really is a wonderful reference. Thank you again for making this one available to us!

    Thank you and yes you catch it : I wanted a book to be on the bench as well as on the coffee table, useful and beautiful, it is scratch and stains resistant.
    Glad that everyone understands what efforts it was to bring it to completion and that everyone is enjoying it.
