Baby nurse - those pastel Tahitians are sensational. As a side note, I also love your collection of knits and cardigans!

I wondered if it was you who got it -- Jeremy said it was one of the regulars. I called about 20 minutes after the blog posted, but they said someone else had already inquired. I'm dying to try it on at the Ruckus if you don't mind.

I wrap them in Kleenex and then put them, many pieces, into a Chinese food container. You can fit a LOT of pearls in one of those containers and if they're individually wrapped, no scratching.

Why am I NOT surprised Baby Nurse snagged the pastel Tahitians? They look gorgeous on you. And the sweater, too!

From Experience lots of mini sterlite containers lined in bubble wrap :- ). I emptied the safe, and I :eek: lined mini containers then stacked them in bigger containers. When I helped my cousin move we packed her perfume the same way, she collects Waterford crystal type perfume "thingies" (decanters?), that is where I first got the idea.

Here are some pearls so this isn't a total off topic reply:

BabyNurse .. those Tahitians are absolutely gorgeous!
BPD - Love your photo ! And excellent suggestion re: packing. I'm going to be selling my house and will have to pack up "the beading room' ugh But you have definitely provided the method for packing all the 'stuff' .
FunkyPearl..I'm not looking forward to moving....I wish you luck and hope it all goes smoothly! It's a great time to get rid of things.

I don't blame you for not enjoying moving. I have one tip (for being security minded regarding jewelry) if you can use the ones that are not see through it is better. You'll need to find a way to make a note of what is in each. So my cousin used colored sharpies, a strip of packing tape (to mark the box number without defacing the container), a number system and a numbered list in her cell phone.

Ex:

box 1 (Purple sharpied "1"), on her cell phone list 1= Chanel handbags
box 2 (Green sharpied "2"), on her cell phone list 2= Shoes

Oh, Baby Nurse .... SIGH! Those are so beautiful !!! Many of us were on Jeremy's waiting list for those LOL. I love the way they look on you :)

Newberry, I wore my double nested white baroque akoyas at last year's ruckus, with their bracelet and now I've got 2 pair of earrings to match ... and it's all thanks to your advice ;) I just love your tin cup version ... how the pearls don't have chain between, just enough gold link to separate and highlight each and every precious pearl ... a masterpiece. And we LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing every word of your stories!

I well remember your double nested. It was spectacular from across the room during the presentations!!!
