Totally worth the wait, I LOVE them! Thank you to Purranha for introducing us to this incredible line and to Heather for her genius in creating them!

    I’ve layered the bird of prey necklace with the feather pearl necklace and the Tahitian/ freshwater Keshi rope from Kojima Pearl.

I just can't decide which one I like the best. I've sent Heather my email so she can send me pics.
    Hi 86Corvettegirl! Sorry I just saw your posting now. To be honest I think my pictures may have been peppered throughout "Show Us Your Pearls in Action" thread and some NYC mini-ruckus threads. I don't have a centralized thread for Heather Benjamin pieces!

    I'm very lucky to be located in NYC where both little h and Heather Benjamin participate in a twice a year trade show and have lended me credentials to sneak in (yes I was "Jeremy from PP" a few times lolol!). I have taken LOTS of photos in those trade shows and have shared dropbox link with ladies who were interested and asked.

    I have removed the folder from my Dropbox since it takes up a lot of space, but since there's interest, I'll put the folder back on Dropbox tonight and share link here again soon. But please note I'll probably remove the folder again in a few weeks since my Dropbox is constantly running out of capacity lolol!

    Stay tuned!

    Hi Ladies, I've included a dropbox link to pictures I've taken at Heather Benjamin's tradeshow. Let me know if you have any issues!

    Those PoJ metallic earrings have spoiled me when it comes to high luster. I see a description of a pearl as being high luster, and I'm thinking, the image of the camera doesn't show the lens and you can't see the individual fingers of the photographer. Those pearls are truly rare and outstanding.

    I hear you, Red! Great luster is my favorite characteristic in a pearl. When I bought this pair of earrings from Kevin, he had several to choose from and I bought two pairs. At the time I felt like I should have shown more self restraint but I’m glad now to have both. I’ll post a picture of them a bit later.

    Day 352:

    Waterfall necklace from Kojima Pearl, Tahitian dangles from Kojima Pearl, graduated fwp necklace from Pearl Paradise connected to pistachio akoya rope from little h.

    Don’t know if this black and cream top is familiar to anyone. Purranha has one like it and has occasionally shared pearl pics of herself wearing it. I commented one time on how much I liked it and she recently found one for me on eBay. I’m so pleased with it— thank you, Purranha
