    The Ruckus was so much fun -- full of wonderful friends and gorgeous pearls! I did a little shopping while I was there, lol.

    I waffled a bit, because I already have a few necklaces with GSS and WSS pearls, but I finally decided I had to have this 36" harvest rope. It has 4 pairs of bluish keshi pearls, and an amazing pair of large golden keshi pearls. The keshis make it different from anything else I own. It is incredible to me that the pearls are matched across the 2 sides. I'll take more pictures once it is strung and sent to me.

    I also selected 5 of Douglas' "erotochromatic" Sea of Cortez mabe pearls.

    I plan to have them made into a 5-pearl necklace with thin YG bezels, similar in style to this one:

    Kay, those SoC mabes will be wonderful in a piece like that! And wow, that harvest rope is spectacular (although I went to USC, so I don't wear blue and gold together )

    I purchased two wild Sea of Cortez pearls and a teal/ green Tahitian from Pearl Paradise.
    One of the wild pearls will be the body of a octopus in a Sheri Jurnecka Clam with a mermaid holding a octopus. It had to be 3-4mm. I selected a cherry with green halo wild pearl.
    The second is also cherry with a green halo. Gem+++ 7.5 Sea of Cortez that was just discovered by fishermen and shown to Douglas who brought it to the ruckus.
    I had it drilled..... I hated to. but it's now a pendant.

    I can't wait either. I fell in love as soon as Sheri posted it.

    Kay ... I love love love that idea for the Mabe necklace. Many of the Mabe necklaces aren't my particular ( quite possibly peculiar) taste but this design speaks to me ! Love it.

    Love the SoC pendant ..and that chain..really nice !! The colour in the pearl is amazing..

    I just realised I missed half the first page !!!
    Newberry - whew ! Love the harvest stand - I'm fanning myself and don't know if its the necklace or a hot flash ! And the loose pearls are beautiful. That fireball is very nice ! Lovely shape and lustre.

    BWeaves ! The chain looks wonderful with that beautiful pendant ! It's perfect !!

    I never saw the SoC pearls that Douglas brought, haha. They must have gone fast! His necklace was lustworthy, though.

    LillieFuzzySocks: That pearl is amazing.

    Everyone's loot is fabulous.

    All of your ssp harvest strands are gorgeous.

    Kay: love your new mabes.

    Bweaves: I really like your new chain. Wonderful idea and it must be difficult to drill such tiny pearls...

    LFS: think we need close ups of your new pearls.

    Thanks for starting and contributing to this thread. The videos are great but couldn't see the details from the videos so having pics as well is great.

    Ooooh I don't know what to gush over first!! BWeaves that emerald wrapped chain is perfect with your enhancer! Kay, I'm drooling over those mabes - a SoC mabe necklace is on my pearl bucket list. LFS, beautiful choices, I can't wait to see your mermaid piece!

    Oh, everything is so drool worthy! I saw these in person and they were gorgeous. I'm just not creative enough to know what to do with loose pearls so it was hard to pass up on such beauties but glad they are going to become amazing pieces!

    Kay, the mabe necklace is going to be spectacular! What were you having done to the harvest strand?

    LFS, I so love the pendant with the SOC pearl!

    BWeaves, so glad you found the perfect strand to display your magnificient little h emerald pendant. The look is perfection! And so happy you found some matching hanadama earrings. I know you looked hard for them! I only saw the mabes when Kay had them on her and Douglas had one on his forehead. I came late to I missed out on a lot of the rare items.

    Newberry, your harvest strand is one of my favorite ones along with Cathy's. I love that huge two tone keshi! The strand looks so perfect with your other gssp necklaces. I am in love with that tripled look you wore Saturday!

    Red, I can't wait to see what you and your jeweler come up with on the earrings and loose pearls. Your two always come up with winning designs!

    I had a list of items to purchase at the ruckus, but alas, none of them were available so I put myself down on a few wish lists. I did purchase a few things: a beautiful blue Tahitian ring from Kojima Pearls (which is being reset so I have no pictures, but it is a twin of the one Julie purchased), a few loose freshwater pearls (to mimic Kay's akoya necklace she wore on Sat night... basically adding in 10-11mm freshies to smaller akoyas to make the strand whimsical and fun, and hopefully get some wear out of it), and a Kamoka pearl on leather for my daughter. Josh was wearing it and I thought it was the perfect pearl for an anklet for my daughter who is an ocean girl. It's a cute and beautiful blue-green pearl so I'm very grateful he sold it to me. I also bought some beautifully carved black lipped oyster shells. I had two but gave one away as a gift already, so I only have the one pictured below.

    Here are the fwps with the akoya earrings. I'm going to add the fws to the akoya strand that matches these earrings (I didn't bring the strand to the ruckus, but luckily I had the earrings!). Thank you to Alex who hand selected matching colors.
