Tell Octavia thanks for influencing Jeremy to create the new men's necklace. It is stunning.
And yes, I am still too timid to try to post my 18" 8-9mm. freshies, and my newest acquisition of pearls from C. Cardellini - a white baroque rope 10ish mm. LOVE them both. I guess I feel like PearlPool (missing Mikis) who came to pearls late in life. I always loved pearls, and still have the two yellowed "pearl" collars children wore in the 50's, as well as a yellowed "pearl" clutch purse from my grandad. I learned that "cultured" pearls were just glass beads and scarcely worth having, and that only the very rich could afford "real" pearls. Well, phooey, I finally decided I was rich, and wanted one good strand. Then I discovered PG, and oh, what a delight, and education. A thing of beauty really IS a joy forever, isn't it?? I'll continue to learn from the wings, but thanks for checking on me.
Wanting my 3rd strand of "real" pearls,
