Good morning pearl queens.... Time to start a new thread I see. The coffee pot is on with a new blend from SB. Chocolate Pearl blend... Smells great. I will be around with the pot in a few minutes... Anyone for one of Crusty's freshly baked cinnamon rolls?

We had met Michael at another ruckus and he bought these items to show us. The strips the shell is cut into first, then cubed, finally rounded into spheres.

Plastic forms, which are super glued to the inside of the shell to form Mabe`. Once they are coated with nacre, the plastic insert is removed and resin is put into it's place then the backing plate of MOP is installed.

Unless this is followed it can't be called Mabe`.

Backing plates or just used as inlay

Did you see the photo of Angelina and the Queen this week? She's wearing her white south sea studs from Pearl Paradise.

She looks lovely! I love the suit she is wearing. Angelina has grown up quite remarkably since wearing vials of blood around her neck.

I can be a poor woman's Angelina (although I was always on team Jenn) if I can find a copy of her magnificent pale blue suit she is wearing in that photo with Her Majesty!

How beautiful, Smarty. I agree that suit she was wearing was so elegant. I can't wait to hear what you wear your new pearls with. Have fun....

The above are two shots...one on the neck and one side by side with my Honora TSV mings. In my haste to post, I forgot to take off my tahitian tin cup...but it gives a nice size reference. The tahitians are 10-11mm

Hi ladies:

I posted a bit several months ago and have been mostly lurking. I bought the September lavender kind-of-like a "Y" necklace. Beautiful.

Then I saw the ripples and was undecided. Eventually I couldn't stand it and ordered a 20 inch strand. They look very much like Smarty's white strands and they are gorgeous. The ripples and the play of light over them! And the clasp is so elegant and easy to get on and off! PP has spoiled me so! I've given most of my Q Honoras to my nieces, except for several pairs of Honora studs which are really lovely.

I get so many compliments on my PPs. The metallics and the ripples cause the most interest.

One day - South Seas! Just not today...

Serenajoy, I took a photo of your necklace at the mansion ruckus photoshoot. Our Pearl Queen Wilma modeled it. Those pearls were fantastic. I stop and look when I see that photo. Congrats

That's fabulous! They are such a great size. Love 'em. I'm almost afraid to see the next new thing. I pity women who think one strand of pearls is enough. WHAT PLANET ARE THEY ON????

Congratulations Serena on you fab PP pearls. That Y necklace was just so beautiful I am glad a pearl queen from here got it. Pearls are like potato chip just can't have one {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

This afternoon my "Fat sisters" arrived. I am so thrilled I can't stand it. Went out with a girlriend and stopped to look at them in any shiny surface I passed. Lucky for me she knows my passion for pearls and had many times to laugh at me today. I will have to get a good picture taken this weekend.

Waving at all of the Pearl Queens {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Serena, I would love to see a shot of that gorgeous necklace on your neck! Enjoy it and wear it in good health!

Newberry, what are the "fat sisters"? And can you post a photo as well???

Just stopping by to say "Hi!" ... don't want this thread to go too far to the bottom of the world :) Not much new here; my former partners coaxed me into working for 2 weeks, to fill in for someone on vacation. I worked long hard hours, did the regular work, and fixed everything from a printer to a stapler to the FedEx Int. terminal to a couple of people. I am immensely happy to be DONE; the one thing I can't fix is ... them :) I did, however, get to wear pearls every day ... 2 most useful? Pteria Penguins; those beauties look great with everything, and are an everyday go to strand. Tahitians; worn long as a rope, GREAT worry beads when people make you crazy LOL! Fun weekend ahead, as we have a "SPOOKY" dinner with my sister ... she makes all kinds of food, and a printed and framed menu "Mealworms covered with Bat Wings and Monster Claws" last year turned out to be delicious Paella :) My little pearl grandson will be there, and I'm sure there will be much mischief ... Wishing all a great weekend, and HOPING to see those "Fat Sisters" soon :)
