    The ruckus was such a wonderful weekend of sharing with friends, old and new. It is a lot of fun to ogle each others' goodies (and shop), but it was also such a fun and relaxing weekend of visiting with a lovely group of people who have been brought together by a common interest, but also have so much more to share.

    A big thank you to our hosts, Jeremy and Hisano, all the other people at PP who take such great care of us, the presenters who shared their knowledge and humor with us, Lucy and Ethel for their help with the event and the wonderful photos and reports that come after, and everyone else who made this event so fantastic! I look forward to 2016. (But now what do I do for the rest of 2015, lol.)

    Of course, I forgot one more thing. At PP I was showing Jeremy the multicolor strand of round Tahitians that I had purchased at last year's ruckus. I said that not only did my bracelet have three blue pearls, but I thought it also had natural colored chocolate Tahitians. I wondered if Jeremy could confirm. At this, he ran to his office and came back with a baggy of natural colored chocolate Tahitian pearls that he had been collecting for a necklace. The outside bag was labelled with a drawing of a chocolate candy kiss, and inside were baggies of chocolate pearls grouped by size. We opened the bags and admired the pearls. But, the smallest bag labelled 8-9mm had just three pearls inside, and were so very dark and lustrous. Two of them matched pretty well, so I selected them to be made into studs. The wonderful folks at PP drilled and glued them for me on the spot, and I was able to take them home. I wore them today with my multicolor Tahitian necklace and bracelet, and felt like a pearl queen.

    Thank you, again, to all the wonderful folks at Pearl Paradise.

    I can't thank our host and hostess enough for sponsoring this wonderful ruckus event. I enjoy seeing my pearl friends and their pearls. I love meeting the farmers who create our pearls. Thank you to the talented artists who share their expertise. This is truly one of the highlights of my year.

    I shot this photo as the last van left PP on Sunday afternoon. Now these wonderful people can look forward to recovering from hosting this amazing weekend.

    Good-bye Jeremy and Hisano. Thank you for everything!

    Finally, I purchased a small Tahitian keshi loose and brought it home. It is tiny, but mighty. These dark keshi have already been mentioned in the PP blog and Hisano is using them in her lovely jewelry.

    I showed it and my new little Burmese to a local jeweler today. One possibility is to attach them to diamond pendants. But, I haven't decided yet.

    At one point I came into the room to discover a pair of gorgeous round 9-10mm AAA pistachio Tahitians laying in the middle of the pearl sorting table. I was told that they had been matched by Chenai and that no one had claimed them. I had been looking for pistachio pearls to go with my silver pistachio Tahitian drop strand that I had purchased from PP earlier this year. Hisanso drilled them and mounted them on white gold eye pins for me on the spot. Here I am wearing them on a pair of white gold and diamond huggies that I already owned.

    I am thrilled with these. I wore this set the first two days that I was home after the ruckus.
