        Douglas, how did you get a copy so early??? I checked on Amazon, and they say September 2021. I checked eBay, and got only very strange results...

          It is a great book CortezPearls. I have had it for a month. Ordered it from a swedish online bookstore. Wendy also has it on her website. You can order a copy there Linda.wald. It might take a while to get it to us, but not until september at least. You might have to pay some tax but at least no shipping over 5£.

              Got it from Wendy's site Linda! Since the site is an eStore I cannot (none should after all) place the link here, but I know you will manage

                BTW...I came across this site just about 30 minutes ago...it is ACIAR's site (Australian Government) and it talks about a project with Women & Mabe Pearls in the islands of Fiji, Tonga and New Guinea. Very interesting...and they have a very nice video that shows you their aquaculture system (they use "Mabe-gai" pearl oysters or Pteria penguin) and you should see how pretty the pearl oysters look in their "rope culture" system.
                The idea is for women to become empowered via Mabe pearl culture, make their own jewelry and sell it to tourists...but -of course- COVID has disrupted these plans
                I highly recommend this read and their video. Please use this link!

                      Now, an interesting story about the Paspaley family...in a Greek website.

                      Greek-Australian Paspaley Family are the "Kings of Pearls" (greekreporter.com)

                      Some really nice photos there...like this one:

                        Another interesting article!
                        Did you ever enjoy Agatha Christie's novels or movies based on her books? Well, seems she had a pearl necklace she always wore...here is the whole scoop!

                              CortezPearls thank you for sharing this article, so interesting!

                              I love this part: "Since clothes were quite low cut in those days, women wore heavy headgear or strings of pearls around your shoulders dropping down into your cleavage as opposed to around your neck. "

                              Ties into the call for swag colliers in the style channel. I wonder what would be the best way to affix a strand to the shoulder of a garment, short of literally sewing them down...an unobtrusive pin maybe, or larger brooch. Suddenly I want to try this, could create a great boat-neck silhouette..

                                I would like to see how these were worn. I don't believe I have seen it in photos, nor movies nor portraits.
