    I've just managed to put together a blog post with some photos of my visit to a pearl factory in Bangkok. Blog entries on HK to come. Delays due to a massive sinusitis from which I am only now recovering (cough splutter wheeze)

    Feel better soon Wendy! I just hate being under the weather.
    Also, would you please post a link to your blog? I'm sure I can find it, but I'm a tad bit lazy

    I am mad about Mad About Pearls and now following Icyjade!

    The link in my signature seemed to have disappeared. Hopefully now reinstated. Yes. much better by the day although only three breaths in the pearl drilling room felt like it was going to have finished me off! In spite of the state of the art filtration!

    I wish you a speedy recovery, Wendy. I saw your pictures on FB, love them. I wish I had been in the factory also.

    Has anyone read the latest PP blog? those pearls in Hisano's hand. Sigh, they are huge! I wonder if the oysters didn't choke because of them.
    Are we soon wearing ginormous pearls? Oh my neck!

    Holy cow, those are door knockers. I can't actually see wearing those. The need to be on a beautiful jewelry cabinet as the door pulls.

    This cute little SS fella was a bit smaller but did come home with me. I think he will find a home sitting on my computer with a blob of blutack.

    Those pearls were insane. All of them were over 40 mm, and they were asking $35,000 per pearl!
