    Sarah/Kojima's mabe SOC necklace is divine; even prettier in person. One little note, IF I remember correctly: The longer pendant is removable so the necklace can be work separately, but because of the way the pendant attaches on the back, it isn't able to be worn on its' own. If Sarah or anyone else wants to correct that, please do The necklace is one of the most beautiful necklaces I've ever seen ... a one of a kind, runway look.

    I agree: even at Ruckus, Douglas' pearls can be a hard catch. I missed the impromptu pre-sale on the hood of the Tessla in 2014. That was also the year he showed an amazing strand under perfect lighting that I wanted with all my heart, but my budget just would not budge at that moment - I still have never forgiven it. I consoled myself (a little) with a pair for earrings, but I have never yet completed them, having committed to loop findings that haven't fir over any hoops I have.

    But Douglas found and sent me (post-Ruckus) this most wonderful pendant pearl, which I have only just this spring finally had the nerve to finish with one of PP's findings they generously allowed for sale at my last Ruckus in 2016. Yes, I am perhaps the world's slowest to commit and finish pieces.

    Ha Ha, Bweaves! Because it took me 2 years to decide on the finding and another 2 to get around to assembling it. World's slowest! Also now I have a very beautiful 22k & tourmaline finding I bought for this but didn't use. Maybe something will pop up for it at Ruckus this year, and in another couple years you will get to see that too, lol.

    Lovely pendant Narcissa! You're not the only one ... I think I have unfinished pieces from 2014 ... 2015 ... 2016 ... 2017 .... Findings are difficult, and I'm picky and the budget isn't what I would choose if I had a choice LOL.

    Narcissa - don't worry you are not alone in the long search for appropriate findings for special pearls. I've got a large Blue South Sea that I'm still trying to sort out what to use and thats been two years. I've got things going back 6 years that I've not yet decided on a setting. I understand .... believe me That's a beautiful pendant and I love the round bail. ( is that an enhancer or a bail ?)

    Narcissa, your pendant is stunning!! And Nora, your ring is gorgeous! I'd do nothing else but stare at that ring all day! And yes, that "drop dead" SoC shows all the rainbow colors and is probbaly the prettiest SoC pearl I've ever seen!
