    Default OK - I must stop! Pearl ban!!!!!!!

    Last week I celebrated a milestone birthday (the one that comes with a Medicare card in the US). So I ordered my magnificent strand from Cees. I was so thrilled with it that I ordered another - this time in bright multi-colors. I now declare that I am on a pearl ban!!!!!!! Actually, I have to be for at least 3 weeks because we're leaving Saturday for vacation to a place with NO internet (or phone - except for satellite phone) - connectivity

    So my self-imposed pearl ban is in force until Christmas or I win the lottery. In the meantime, here's the latest from Cees:

    I'm not usually much of a fan of strands of round-ish pearls, but this one's a winner for now - until I get inspired to tear it down for something more unusual ...

    I think that was a pretty good last hurrah before your ban! They're beautiful and look beautiful on you.

    Gorgeous!!!!

    Yeah, my pearl ban on myself never works. I usually declare a ban right before PP, POJ, Kojima or Kamoka sends me an e-mail with a special offer and then all bets are off.

    I've never bought from Cees, but everything I've seen from him are luscious.

    Happy Birthday! What a gorgeous way to celebrate! Have a wonderful trip and good luck with the ban.

    Every time I try to ban myself, some pretty new thing comes back from Hong Kong.

    So much for my own after Ruckus Pearl Ban. I just succumbed to the Kojima sale and it's not even the Waterfall necklace I've been lusting after.

    Zia bracelet.

    I secretly plan on linking it to my other orbit clasps on my blue or pistachio akoya necklaces and wearing it as part of a necklace.
