  • Just home after a harrowing 16 hour journey (my fault -- I f#$%ed up my flight home in a most miserable way). I'll post pictures and a report when I have my wits about me.

    The Ruckus was insanely fun and the only bad thing is having to wait a whole year for the next one!!!

      • I was a fool. When I booked my super cheap trip home I didn't realize that not only was it a midnight departure (that, I knew) but it also wasn't a direct flight! And there was a lightning storm so the lay over was even longer than expected.... all's well that ends well. I'm home.

        • In your honor, BAS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPyl2tOaKxM (language, oh, plenty of language - what else can you expect from a song about commercial flight?)

          Been there, done that. And I know I will do it again, despite all my resolutions. After all, if I choose that weird flight from that out of the way airport at weird-o-clock, I can get some nice pearl earrings for myself. Do I have to mention the hotels as well?

                  Thank you Jeremy and Hisano.. and to all that worked so hard behind the scenes to make that I am sure the best Ruckus YET!

                  • It was ABSOLUTELY one of the Best Pearl Gatherings ever! It never ceases to amaze me how things can only improve from one year to the next...but when it comes down to the most important thing it has to do with FRIENDSHIP.

                    Yes, pearls are everywhere and it is the reason why we meet to suffer -and waste away- at the splendid champagne, caviar and food **** we are being offered by Hisano & Jeremy. But I believe that we all ENJOY this gathering so much is because we have all become friends, a small family of Pearl Lovers/Addicts were we can all just talk away and share our passions and dreams.

                    Jeremy and Hisano have helped to create some more than "just another annual gathering"...with all of us in the picture you can see we are a FAMILY.

                    And it was beautiful to meet my pearl brothers and sisters, my pearl mothers and aunties yet again. I can hardly wait for next year...it just takes too long for all of us to have such a splendid time.

                    Thank You Jeremy & Hisano, thank you all for your friendship and for loving my Cortez Pearls too

                          • I finally have some of my photos resized. I'll try to avoid a lot of duplication.

                            I'll begin with a portrait of this amazing woman as we are leaving the mansion. Caitlin, I love those sunglasses! Not to mention those gorgeous new little h geode earrings, and that natural pearl necklace and that unique pearl pendant.

                            Simply fabulous.

                            • This is my second PP ruckus, and I purchased quite a few strands last year. So, I wasn't looking for more necklaces. Instead I focused on the new, exciting, beautiful and unusual. I'm quite pleased.

                              Let's begin with my Sea of Cortez pearls. SoC is the very definition of new, exciting, beautiful and unusual. I already own a couple of loose pearls, earrings, a ring, and a mabe pendant and earrings. At the ruckus I purchased a SoC bracelet with a mix of cultured SoC pearls and natural SoC hinge pearls. Douglas explained to me that the hinge pearls are natural Sea of Cortez pearls that are found in the hinge region of the rainbow lip oyster. Unlike most SoC pearls, hinge pearls are pure white and lack the characteristic red fluorescence of most SoC pearls.

                              • The rest of my Sea of Cortez pearls are loose. Douglas brought several unusual mabe pearls this year that were formed when the rainbow lip oysters were attacked by vampire crabs. At first they thought that the vampire crabs would eat the oysters. But, the oysters defended themselves very well. These mabe pearls actually contain vampire crabs that the oysters covered with nacre. A vampire mabe! That I had to have. It is the large pearl on the right side of this photo.

                                Next, I selected a baroque pearl that matched my vampire mabe in both surface pattern and color. (Below the mabe in this photo.)

                                I also purchased a large blue baroque Sea of Cortez pearl that I'm hoping to make into a pendant.

                                Finally, Douglas allowed me to select a tiny keshi to take home. I think my little SoC keshi has the shape of a sunflower seed.
