funky_pearl, "the kids" (group of 5 cousins) had buckets and buckets in the garage of their diamonds :) One day my husband poured them around the base of the new lamp post outside LOL. It was fun searching though, unless you stayed too far after dusk/sunset, when the hordes of mosquitos descended! All our visitors were treated to a day climbing the lighthouse, watching for dolphins, seafood dinner, and ... always took a diamond or 3 home from that gift shop. Fun times.

funky_pearl, it was years ago, and the small children were not very discriminating LOL ... any pretty pebble was "A DIAMOND" ... a brown one, a pink one, a yellow one etc. :)

Sheri what a really great ring. Who knew a couple of buttons a a pearl would yield a great ring. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity.

I love my white baroque akoyas ... 2 strands, separate, but of a length to nest nicely ... wear them often, alone or nested, or connected as a long rope. But, Newberry, that simple linked wire wrap with the drop ... just divine!

Thank you BabyNurse!

Purranha several years ago I went on my usual spring trip to PP and Jeremy put in front of me a little bag of white metallic drops that was scheduled to be an April special. I picked out two for earrings. He then put a pearl on a chain down in front of me. My jaw dropped my had grabbed and I said I want this one. I wanted the blossom setting on the earrings and have a custom made bale with the same setting for the pendent. Wore it like that for years. When I heard about the big baroque akoyas I took the drop with me to see how metallic pearls and akoyas looked together. The tin cup was created. Long story....and you probably only wanted to know that the pearl is over 12mm wide and 16mm long ;)
