    This designer had quite the challenge. How would one showcase such a unusual pearl?

    I have no idea how to showcase this pearl. Its shape and color are, um, challenging. I wonder how big the pear is in real life.

    Unfortunately, I'm looking at a blown up photo on a huge monitor and the thing is the size of a hot dog. I'm sure in real life it's only a few mms in each direction, which would take away the severed body part feeling, maybe.

    Neverminding the body part issue, the entire design is a big fat "no" for me. Stylistically, it reminds me of gaudy 80's jewelry...

    The designer could have just gone with the "hot dog" theme, made an enameled bun, hung it as a charm, skipped the gems.

    Or with yellow stones for mustard, red for ketchup, and green for pickles?

    I generally don't comment on designs that I dislike, but this one seems to be a terrible waste of some nice pearls and gemstones. And, I like butterflies, as a rule.

    Sorry, GemGeek. I'm sure it is sparkly in real life.

    I'm so sorry, Blaire. This is the first time I haven't liked one of the jewelry designs you shared with us.

    WOW! Sometimes what you think up in your head doesn't actually work out in reality.

    Hey, I can take it. Now I think I may have to go looking for body-part pearls!
