    These were pretty - sort of like the graduated necklaces from last year , WSS , GSS and Tahitians. Many of the pearl offices do some ready made or just ' designs' that can be bought as is

    Pareltje - You are welcome ..this is all just bits from the offices . The show starts tomorrow and I am sure Brady will have some great footage !!

    At the moment I'm just hanging out in the A/C after walking all over town . I didn't intend to so do ..but I ducked into a big shopping mall and when I came back out I was on the wrong street. So walked around the block ..back into the shopping centre ..wandered around..out another exit ..yet a different street . Sigh. .. I think I went around that block from two directions. Finally got back and ran into Betty Sue ... off we went to yet a different mall ( further away arrrghh) We only got a little lost in that one . It seems extra humid today . But at least it's not raining !!

    Why thank you ! Perhaps in a slightly cooler environment!!! Nothing is much fun in this heat and humidity! I can no longer find my ankles ...they have melded with my calves !

    Noooooooooooooooo! I hope it holds off till Sunday ! It was a bit bumpy on the way in as there had been storms .

    As Brady has mentioned, the heat and humidity here is a killer. The A/C in the show is poor at best. I think they have had a system failure ...last few years it's been cold ...now it's stifling . Everyone is complaining., it's pretty uncomfortable. There was a CPAA cocktail party just after the show , Brady filmed up a storm ! So you'll see it all on FB . I had a glass of wine and was ready to fall asleep. Lol

    The lack of aircon at the show is killing me! By the time I have set up I need a shower! I (stupidly) wore a suit yesterday thinking that for the actual show days they would make it a pleasant place to be..... I am ditching the suit today and I bet they make it like a fridge ......

    I was half joking about wearing swim trunks and a t-shirt today. Not having working air-conditioning in a massive venue like Asia World Expo in one of the hottest and most humid cities on the planet is a MAJOR fail.
