    Default Traveling pearl on vacation

    Iím on vacation in Hawaii! Itís a favorite destination and I am here a lot. I thought I would take you window shopping with me on this trip.

    First, let me introduce you to the traveling pearl. This was a PP purchase from around 10 years ago. Jeremy coined it the traveling pearl because it has been everywhere with me and I have often sent him photos from my travels. It is usually the only piece of jewelry I take with me on trips. It is a 12mm green body with peacock overtones, Tahitian.

    This is a purchase from yesterday, for starters. A three Tahitian dangle pendant. It is from Te Hotu Mana. I took several pictures of their booth from a show I was at yesterday and will add them later today along with more info, but here’s the pendant for now. I chose it because of the vibrant colors, and there is a tiny keshi on the chain extender.

    Thanks so much, everyone!

    Here are several photos from the Te Hotu Mana booth. John and his wife currently live on Maui, but he is originally from Tahiti.

    This is another three pearl dangle. The colors are more rare in this one with a very purple pearl, and pistachio.

    This is a bracelet that I purchased from them a year ago. Very colorful pearls and a keshi dangle.

    Another vendor who let me take several photos is Mark Kaneshiro. His business is called Mark Kane designs. These are all original designs and have quite a weight to the gold. There are several jewelry stores across the islands that carry some of his pieces.

    I purchased the green Tahitian posts sitting in the dish. They are 10mm.

    Here are two 14kt gold pendants I purchased from him last year.

    This is a signature piece called the Double Wahine.

    Wow! Love the photos, and I second the love for that green-blue pendant stunner from Te Hotu Mana.
