Thank you, Charlotta. It's a one of a kind statement piece & looks like it should be in a museum! It's got some weight but is very comfortable to wear. I am beyond thrilled!

Wow! A special piece indeed. With the incredible octopus front and center. He looks like he is trying to hide in the sea of pearls.

Thank you, Red. It turned out beautifully & the clasp is special, too, 2 octobabies. I feel so glamorous with it on! Here's a full picture Sheri sent me.

Beautiful and colorful Tahitians Charlotta. Well done. :)

86Corvettegirl- Wow and Wow! What a stunning unique piece. This is going to bring you joy for years to come. Thanks for sharing such wonderful eye candy. I just want to reach through the screen and touch it.

Thank you, Gemandpearlover! A lot of positive energy went into the making. Her kitten, Luna, was a big help. I wonder if she knows my blue ringed Octobaby from Sheri is named Luna. LOL But Kanaloa is special... I feel empowered wearing him. I have several appointments tomorrow so Kanaloa will be out & about!

Amti, you are so right about the hot Southern summers....the lighter the better. I would love to see a pic of your blue/white Akoya necklace! Sometimes, I will wear one of mine by itself as well.

Here's an old thread showing pictures, Corvettegirl: https://www.pearl-guide.com/forum/showthread.php?11639-Restyled-amp-Recycled-Jewelry-Challenge!&p=192123&viewfull=1#post192123

I hope you get your long T strand soon. I love Tahitians on a rope because I can admire the beautiful colors all day long!

WOWZA!!!!! WOWOWOWOWOWOW! That's amazing, and GORGEOUS. It reminds me of a piece I saw in one of the pearl books I have that is a bib of large keshi, and I always admired that piece, but yours so 100 times better. WOW!

That is truly wearable art, 86C! If I were in a meeting with you, I’d barely be able to focus on anything other than Kanaloa! The central octo and clasps are fabulous together, and the pearls... Mm-mm!

Some are GSS, some WSS, FW ripples, nuggets, & rice pearls. The Octo-Pearl is the SS pearl I bought from PP during their Feb VIP launch earlier this year.

Thank you Marianne, BW, CricketBug, & JP! Kanaloa has been a huge hit so far today. My Doctor had a fit over him as did several of her nurses & techs. My Dr had to try him on. She was surprised how comfortable he is to wear. I can't wait to show him to my jeweler. He's a huge lover of pearls & calls me his "Pearl Queen". I definitely feel like a Queen with him on!!

Thank you, BN. Kanaloa is a show stopper. He's has drawn praise everywhere I've been today. I just love wearing him!

As we like to do every year, my H and I attended the East Coast Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show in Springfield, MA. It's always held on the 2nd weekend in August, in the Better Living Center on the fairgrounds for the Big E (agricultural fair).
Here's their ad if anyone wants to go tomorrow or Sunday:

It's not a particularly good show for pearls, so I had no expectations of seeing any I wanted to buy. But the large mineral specimens are always fun to see-- Kristalle's booth has an amazing rubellite crystal this year-- and if you like gemstone jewelry or loose gems, it is worth going to this show at least once.

This year, for once, we weren't looking for anything in particular. But then I saw it-- a golden south sea strand that I knew my daughter would love. (She is indifferent to white pearls and Tahitians but loves my goldens.) They are fat drop shapes , which she also loves. And they are the same color as the studs I bought for her, that inspired her to pierce her ears (still healing.) My digital gauge says they're 11.9mm to 16.9mm. They are not the deepest gold but they suit her skin tone beautifully. And...huge! :D

She was delighted with her surprise and I'll post photos tomorrow for sure! The best light is gone today.

Meanwhile I want to just say which booth I got them from, as they have other nice pearls, including large Tahitians, a round deep golden SS strand and a mixed gold and white SS strand. It's booth #89, Joan's Collection. (www.joanscollections.com)
I found Joanna to be a delightful lady to chat pearls with and will definitely be checking out her booth next year too!

Oh, I wish I could go but I'll be with my Mom tomorrow. Sounds like you saw some awesome things. What a surprise to see a pearl booth since pearls are generally not at a Gem & Mineral Show. Have fun & am looking forward to seeing pics of the strand you got.
