      Very interesting! But I can't help be reminded of those fabulous hot air balloons that our wonderful Purr created. Maybe one of our super searching sleuths can come up with a photo.

              I'm thinking this is Shari-worthy. One would have to play with it.

                The Melo Melo was not sold, the minimum bid was not reached, 2000 euro was offered.
                Saw also a pair of beautiful golden 10.5 mm pearls with blue sapphires not getting sold @ 300 Euro because the minimum was not reached.

                  I wonder what the reserve price was?

                    I know the pearl is amazing, but I can't shake the feeling I would be dangling a ping pong ball or golf ball between my breasts. I wonder if it wouldn't have been better to design an object d'art to hold that amazing pearl, rather than a necklace.

                      Definitely on the wieldy side, without a sense of balance. The pearl's flame pattern is too irregular and inconsistent to attract top dollar, and its color, while correct, is neither a 'wow.' Altogether a pass. Smart bidders!

                      This does give me ideas for a perfect small conch (Blaire knows which one).

                        I dunno...I actually think it is quite spectacular, but then again I have always had a weakness for monsters...
