    Default Update!

    Sorry long update. A lot been going on. My dad in law just died after 4 years battling with bowel cancer. Had trouble getting in to pearl guide because I have forgotton my password hahaha..anyhow...the Necklace is completed. Its not with me yet. Still in delivery somewhere. But I got the picture! The chain look a bit small so I hope itll hold up and wont break.

    And off topic! He also got this cute ssp baroque pendant set in 18k gold. So I got that as well! It kinda look like albino eggplant.

    I'm rough on bracelets and rings, so I'll always vote for a pendant.

    Thank you Sanippy, JerseyPearl and Katbran. It was a long ordeal. Pretty close to the inlaws so its a bit sad. Now my mum in law wearing his wedding band as a necklace..so sweet! She wore a strand of pearl at the funeral service as well.

    Ill post neck pic as soon as I got the necklace.

    Originally eggplants were white, and egg shaped and egg sized, which is how they got the name eggplant. Every rare once in a while a local grocery store has them in stock and I buy them and cook them and eat them all up. Yours is way prettier.

    BWeaves, the white variety of eggplant are fairly common around these parts. I'm not entirely sure that it is correct that the white variety came first...it may be where the name was derived, but aubergine "mad apples" have been around for centuries.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, asurazzy.

    One a brighter note, your necklace looks amazing... I can't wait to see more pictures. What were the sizes of the pearls again? There seem to be some really big ones! And your pendant looks like a wonderful ssp! When do you get to touch them??

    Thank you everybody for the kind words for my dad in law passing.

    I will have the necklace with me sometime next week. Plan to wear it for my bday partyy yaayy!
    The pearls sizes are not so big I think. They sold me by the gram instead of sizes...I think 1 pearl weigh from 2 to 4 gr. Dunno how many mm r those....

    Btw I think something change here when I try to post a photo. How come it become very small?? Hope it'll be back to normal soon. Btw..had eggplant for dinner! The purple one tho haaha!
