    Default 2017 Ruckus Treasures

    OK - there are lots of us out here who were only able to experience the 2017 Ruckus vicariously. The eye candy from the pictures and videos was amazing!!! For those fortunate enough to be there IRL, PLEASE show us the new treasures you brought home with you!

    I can't wait to share, but it will take me a couple of days before I post anything. It's pouring rain here and the lighting is terrible. I'm afraid I bought too much. But I love everything I bought.

    A couple of quick light box snaps before leaving PP yesterday. My SS harvest strand alone, and with two pair of 8-9 mm cherry Tahitian earring studs, a metallic 13 mm Edison drop pearl, and an "erotochromic" Sea of Cortez mabe that is destined for a ring.

    A snap of my treasures from Sarah at Kojima Pearl. Two pairs of freshwater pearls. White "fish", and colorful "pecans".

    My birthday pearl that Hisano created a new design for me. I'll have to take a better picture of it and post later. When you see it in person in sun light you see how Hisano went from dark to light ruby's. I feel very lucky.

    PSS : Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome. The feeling that your pearls are too small. You must get bigger ones because they make you look smaller.

    vs.

    littleh: The smaller the pearl, the bigger Hisano looks.

    Put it all together and . . .

    WHEEEEE! I can't believe I own this! I got the littleh emerald and soufflé pearl enhancer at last year's RUCKUS (2016). At this year's RUCKUS (2017), Hisano had another emerald and soufflé pearl pendant hanging off this INSANE emerald and pearl wire wrapped chain, and I asked her if I could just buy the chain. The pieces parts are sooooo tiny, and the wire wrapping is teeny tiny.

    I've also hung La Perlagrina off this chain and it looks great, too.

    I wore it with my new 9 mm Hanadama studs. If I could only have one pair of earrings, these would be the ones. It's the reason I got my ears pierced was to have this earring look. I think I'll sell my first pearl studs. I'll never wear those cheapies again.

    Also, I got Alex to swap out the earring backs for the really big, monster earring backs. They're easier to handle than those tiny earring backs, and they make the larger pearls sit up higher on the earlobe.

    More to come . . .
