    There will be but I can't promise when They take a heck of a lot of planning and special pearls!

    Cathy and BWeaves, this is HILARIOUS!! Love Monopearly lol!!

    Here is a pic of the woman who invented Monopoly (originally thought to have been created by Charles Darrow). My kids were asking when the game was created, by whom etc so I did a quick search with my iPhone. Sharing this because her story's interesting AND she's wearing pearls.

    Day 58:

    Tahitian Keshi "tin cup" from Kojima Pearl. I love this little necklace. its delicate and the Keshi are so unique and pretty! I think the stones are tanzanite.

    The earrings are Tahitian dangles from Pearl Paradise.

    Unfortunately, she didn't get her due Cathy. She created the first version of the game called "The Landlord's Game", in 1904. Charles Darrow made millions off his version beginning in 1935. Elizabeth Magie got $500.00! Probably more trivia than you were looking for : ) I wouldn't know about it if it weren't for the constant stream of questions flowing from my kids and the easy internet access through my iPhone lol!

    I hated the game as a kid. Didn't understand it and found it boring. When we went to Canada for Christmas, my sister pulled it out and taught the kids how to play. They loved it and insisted we buy it here in the US. So when my kids are home and there's nothing else to do, out comes the game and I actually enjoy it now!

    Thanks for the complement on the little Keshi strand. Sarah is incredibly talented with these little guys (and all other pearls of course)! It's amazing what a statement such a simple piece can make.

    She LOOKS like what Mrs. Moneybags should look like.

    Sue Bee, please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of your mother.

    BN, what a gorgeous necklace and earrings. I haven't seen that one before.

    The keshi necklace is elegant, BN. It might just be my monitor, but the gemstones appear more like iolite than tanzanite to me.

    Hanadama! That's exactly what I thought and I almost described it as my "MSC" necklace : )

    Yes, I do see MSC in this gorgeous delicate necklace, but also Jersey Pearls beautiful faceted stone and Tahitians!

    I recently bought some multi colored faceted sapphires and am thinking of adding some multicolored Edisons, but you are right these small stones take forever to string!!
