    Smile New to Pearl-Guide? Introduce yourself!

    That's a wonderful idea, I was just looking for a thread like this! I am new here, too, 30 and living in Europe. I am quite new to pearls, costume and fine jewelry as well. I have a long way to go in finding out my preferences so it will take some time before I will invest in some pieces, but all of the creative diy projects on here have the crafter in me itching to start projects. This forum has already left it's mark on me, I bought an octopus ring (without pearl(s)...) after looking at all the amazing octo babies (and daddies) seen in some threads here. And a bunch of Elisabeth Starck books&magazines is making it's way to me as we speak.. can't wait to see where this path will take me!

    Another new person here - hello! I have been lurking for a while now, and finally decided to hit the button and sign on. Pearl-Guide was where I discovered the existence of natural lavender pearls, an idea so odd at the time that I decided to get some to examine for myself. That led to a lavender bracelet from Pearls of Joy, then a necklace and earrings to go with it from Pearl Paradise, and...well, I suspect the rest of the story is familiar enough around here. Here's an attempt at a neck and wrist shot of the purchases which are no small part of why I'm here today...

    I probably should have done this first before posting. I’m Gail aka “mtummybear”. I love pearls, Tahitian and golden salt sea. I also have been buying jade for years and recently got into collecting Niihau shell jewelry. Eclectic mix and my wish list bigger than bank account, lol. I’m from Maui, Hawaii. Thank you for allowing me to join and being patient as I try posting pictures. Gail
