    It was great to meet you amti. Except for the things that weren't available on your wish list, I hope you had a good time.

    It was great to meet Linda and Jim, too. Linda kept buying things I had my eye on before I could get to them, haha. But I bought some stuff out from under Jim before he could get to them.

    It was good to meet up with everyone from last year and make some new friends this year. I enjoyed rooming with SunSeeker, and yes, I will remember your name from now on.

    All in all, I'd say this was an EGGcelent RUCKUS!

    I had a wonderful time! It was fun to meet everybody and put faces to names. And Bweaves, it was really nice to have eggs for breakfast. I can't handle the sweet stuff, I need protein! My main treasure is this tahitian harvest necklace from Kamoka:

    Linda, I wanted to see that harvest strand from Kamoka in person. Of course, the first time I saw it, it was already around your neck! Wear it well!

    I had no intension of buying ripples. I love them on everyone else, but I always feel they are either too heavy, or only a couple of the pearls pop and the rest are dull. Then I tried on this strand from Kojima. It's smaller and shorter than most ripples I've tried on. It just popped on me. These are Chinese freshwater ripples.

    Of course, then I had to get matching earrings. I've had my eye on the Kasumi tanzanite earrings on the Kojima website for quite some time. The Kasumi pearls in the earrings are much nicer than the Chinese freshwater pearls in the necklace, but they match really well.

    The earrings will also go with my big honking amethyst pendant.

    I'm sending the earrings back to Kojima for Sarah to swap out the fishhooks and put a more secure click back / lever back earring on instead. I want her to use the same finding she put on my Tahitian opal drop earrings. I have a bad habit of losing fishhook earrings. They just work their way out of my ears too easily, and I would be heartbroken to lose one of these earrings. I almost asked her to do it at RUCKUS. Hindsight is always 20/20, isn't it.

    I was so happy to be able to wear my golden harvest strand on Saturday night. I pared it with the Sarah tin cup with the pink Kasumi and the 24KT strand. Julie was wonderful to lend me her white and golden south sea bracelets to complete the outfit Thank you JulieBeth
