    What a wonderful treat, Red! Thanks for taking us along for a bit of the Trunk Show What glorious one of a kind pieces ... all amazing and wonderful. My favorite by far ... the Renaissance piece ... just incredible. Green silk dupioni dress, check in the mail ... starting to feel like karma to me, Red ...

    That mabe definitely looks like a New Zealand paua abalone pearl, sometimes marketed under the name "blue eyris". Gorgeous pieces!

I said I can't afford her work, but then I come home that night, and there is an inheritance check in the mail that day that is making me wonder if this piece should be mine.
    I don't mean to tell you your business, BUT if you have the money you HAVE to have that enhancer! That is a once in a lifetime chance, at least it would be for me! Especially since it complements your Ren Faire dress!!!! (Can you tell I want to live vicariously through you???? If you do buy it you must tell us ALL about it and lots of photos!!)

    On another topic, how is the book? I've toyed with buying it, but just bought the new Temple St. Clair book which took a chunk from my "discretionary" funds and I don't want to buy the Crevoshay book if it is just so so. Is it awesome? Will I regret not buying it? I need opinions!!! ;-)

    Have you checked out her website? The pieces are magnificent.

    I too think that you should buy this piece, or else it will be the one that got away...of course, you shouldn't mortgage the house to do it, but if you can swing it you should.

    I know that Paula has purchased Eyris Blue Pearls directly from Roger Beattie in the past. Gorgeous.

    LOL, of course it is karma, Cathy. It's the silliness of thinking I need this fabulous jewel, and it best matches the outfit that I wear to slog through the mud at an outdoor carnival once a year.

    Thank you so much for your expert eye, la_corsetiere. As I recall, you also own some fabulous NZ abalone necklaces.

    The Crevoshay book is beautiful photos of minerals and then a photo of one of her incredible jewels using those minerals. It is an art book, not any sort of reference guide. Paula freely admits that she is a painter, and uses minerals to paint flower jewels. This bias is evident in her book. There are no sizes given for the pieces, no dates, nor is the metal mentioned. This book was to accompany her Paris mineral museum show that is going on now.

    Thanks, GemGeek. I thought that might be the case. When I first saw this piece, I pulled up the Eyris website on my handy smart-phone and showed my jeweler the various colors of these pearls. She had no idea as she is not the pearl connoisseur that you are.
