  • What will they think of next?

    Well, we've all seen the stilletoes, the bikinis, the handbags and the dresses....all adorned with pearls.

    I'm sure a lot of you have seen previous winners of the Tahitian Pearl Trophy but I was looking in some archives today and found a mobile phone, but this isn't any old mobile phone....

    Sorry, it's in Hungarian but I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves.

    Thought this might be a good thread to start about the weird and wonderful things you can do with pearls

    Anyone have any additions?

    That is a great idea. I would like to see a couple of different executions of the idea though- that one is a bit too clunky, but I love the idea of holding a little clam or oyster shaped phone in my hand....

      And with mother of pearl buttons, don't forget about those.

          This looks to be a highly unusual item.

            Hi Caitlin,

            Nice, but who wants to have a baby Jesus cell phone? Particularly one made for an Inca (that would be Atahualpa) and having prior use as a Christmas tree ornament in a convent. Anyway, I don't think Atahualpa was known for his cell phone use or baby Jesus ornaments. If I am not mistaken, he was primarily known for having been deposed and killed and the Inca monarchy being destroyed by conquistadors during his reign.

              But hey, maybe this is the baby Jesus anti-phone: as an old friend from the family dog once made into his logo, "May the baby Jesus shut my mouth and open my mind"

                Sorry Pearltime, that site is blocked in the UAE, but the address doesn't leave much to the imagination!

                Zeide...I'm not sure the idea was to have a baby Jesus cell phone, or for this thread to be of different cell phones, in different shapes, made of pearls. The idea was simply to post interesting things that have been made of pearls.

                  Hi Camille,

                  In case you are not familiar with the practice, I was lampooning alleged nuns selling church property on eBay with questionable stories.

                        Hi Pearltime,

                        The bracelet is just in time for the showing of Pirates of the Carribean, Dead Man's Chest.

                        I'll only wear it on holloween.

                          I like that bracelet, I'd wear it - although the color of those pearls is not my favorite.

                            Hi Kevin
                            I think that bracelet would look great on you. I see you wearing it on a boat......

                            Though the pearls are not my favorite color either, I can see some men who are on the edge of wearing pearls, feeling a little more comfortable with that color. There seem to be a lot of pearls that shape and color hitting the market right now.
                            Here is a retail source and since I am advertising for them a sample picture:

                            This store has some very edgy pearls.

                              Hi Caitlin,

                              It appears that at least one company is tuned particularly to my sensibilities: http://www.artisanduchocolat.com/Art...ookie%5Ftest=1

                              If they were to add champagne delivered with it, I'd be rather tempted to order, weather permitting.
