    I would send it to PP and have them soak it off in attack. They could use the drill hole to set into a forward facing setting for you using the same drill hole. By the way, I was wondering what the second pearl looked like. Still dreaming about your ring who will be forever known as "HANDGRABBER"

    I just got my Kasumi tanzanite earrings back from Sarah at Kojima. She swapped out the fishhooks for a horseshoe earring finding. I feel they are more secure.

    Horrible kitchen lighting, but you get the idea.

    That's good, you certainly can't loose one of those babies.

    That looks much more secure ! Hooks can be a problem for people who wear scarves or wraps , it's so easy to have them push up and lift out .

    Oh, I just turn my head, and the back of the fishhook nudges its way out of my ear because it bumps up against my neck.

    I still can't part with an orphan earring whose mate I lost when my husband was in hospital years ago. It was an amethyst heart with a gold bow above it, dangling from a fishhook. I LOVED those earrings. I hope one day to maybe find a similar pearl or stone and make a mismatched earring so I can wear it again.

    Those horseshoe findings look much more practical - and pretty, at the same time. Wise choice!

    I do love those earrings ! And isn't it a bugger to lose one earring !!!! I met a Real Estate agent at a place last week and the first thing I noticed was one of her big silver dangle earrings was missing. It's winter here and she had a very full wool fashion scarf on...pushed it up and out. We searched all over the front lawn for it lol No luck.

    Those are lovely earrings, and the fitting looks secure. I have a hard time losing earrings, too. I got a third piercing to wear the remaining studs when I lost the other (my cousin's idea -- she had the same problem). How comfortable are the huggie type earrings?

    VERY comfortable. First of all, I only pick huggies that have straight bars going through the holes in my ears. And I like it when the front of the earring goes UP. It covers my hole, and if there is any weight to the earring, you don't see the hole being dragged down. I just think it looks more attractive.

    Default My Baby Edisons

    Having recuperated from the best ruckus ever, I now share my wonderful baby Edison pearls from Pearl Paradise. Lovely bead-nucleated smaller pearls that graduate from just under 8mm to 9mm. I have always wanted a long rope that wasn't too large to wear -- these beauties are just right.

    They change color with the light and go from pastel to bright in the blink of an eye.

    First on a white paper towel to get the color.

    Then on the dread black background in a different room.

    At my desk, to my eyes, they looked silvery and more blue lavender, but the camera just couldn't subdue the color.

    These pearls are a complete delight. Thanks to everyone for making me feel so special at our ruckus this year. The only drawback was not being able to share it with our beloved Caitlin.

    Wonderful, Blaire. Multicolored strands are so versatile.

    Yes. You get to rummage in the Pearl Paradise vault. Little h, Kojima, Kamoka, and Sea of Cortez Pearls bring their online items to see and buy in person, so you get to meet the people behind the online vendors. It's held in Beverly Hills because that's where Pearl Paradise is located.
