    Hi Linda, did you ever see Pulp Fiction, where a briefcase occasionally gets opened, and this glow comes out of it (although you never actually got to see what was in it.....)

    I think it might have been pearls, 'cause the pearl-drawer has that kind of glow too

    Alex:
    Yes, "Pulp Fiction" is one of my favourite movies (despite all the violence).
    I never thought of pearls; that's what might be in that brief case! Good thinking.
    Linda.

    here are some picis of the pearls in action awhile back

    the clasp that is shown in these picis had to be removed in the end, ‘cause it kept ‘flipping’

    Just amazing pics Alex. I would advise BV to wear sunglasses when she opens the pearl drawer. If not, she might end up with eye damage with time!

    Caitlin: those are pretty amazing! Do I understand you're the proud owner of one of these strands? To bad they come in such limited numbers.

    Hi Kat- funny you should say that - I had the Canon out this weekend and was photographing Freshadamas, and did a couple with Hanadamas alongside them for comparison - but some of them came out egg shaped...... don't ask....... (something to do with focus tracking) - my fault, as the camera is a gem, and am still getting the hang of of it

    But will try again this weekend, light permitting !!

    Sorry to hear about your knee - hope it eases soon

    Thanks Isabelle

    yes, the shades are part of the 'opening the pearl drawer' ritual
