    Default Party in the vault!

    I purchased this beautiful golden SS pearl at the Ruckus and was getting antsy to wear it.

    Soooo, a few months ago I decided to plan a trip to PP to have it set. That little plan took off and a party broke out! Several of us converged on PP and we ended up having a mini Ruckus!

    Thank you for sending this photo, CathyKeshi!

    Jeremy even flew from Seattle to LA in the morning, and back to Seattle that evening, just so he could join us!

    We were all working on different projects and the table kept getting fuller and fuller with all the goodies Mia and Jeremy brought out for us to play with!

    We even got to see Hisano’s tutti fruiti conch necklace!

    Mia modeled some different ways to create a pearl belt. She and Brie could create a style column- they are both fashionistas!

    This is what KaySD wore-

    So disappointed I didn’t get a close up of Newberry’s luminous green Tahitian strand. They were fabulous!

    Red was working on Fiji keshi earrings

    Here’s my golden set in one of Hisano’s diamond bails. I had been wanting to wear it on the tiny Akoya and Akoya keshi strand I strung from Hong Kong.

    I worked on, yes, another Fiji bracelet with loose J. Hunter pearls

    I purchased these temp bracelets of SS’s to use with some of the SS keshi I got in Hong Kong

    Thank you, jeg, for getting this party started.

    Here is a photo of you working on your Fiji bracelet. You were really enjoying playing with pearls.

    Another view of the box of tiny Fiji keshi that I spent my time playing with. The pink pearls at the far end are Jeremy's entire stash of Edison "keshi".

    I selected this large Fiji keshi drop to take home. It got two thumbs up from Pearl Queen newberry.

    There are two South Sea harvest bracelets shown on the left in this photo. The pearls on the right are my SS harvest necklace. After I selected the bracelet on the far left, newberry picked the second bracelet for me. They go together beautifully and of course I obeyed the Pearl Queen and purchased them both.

    Thanks SimplyAdorned! It was definitely fun!

    Thank you, Red! So happy you were able to get out of the snow to party!

    Darn, PQ Newberry- your gorgeous Tahitians are off being admired and not in the photo.

    Oh, I'm so jealous!!! I also hate being on the opposite end of the country. Then again, Sarah at Kojima is working on a little something special for me right now, so I really can't complain.
