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?

I purchased the left drop pearl at the Pearl Paradise Connoisseurs sale last September. Once I got it home I noticed it was a color shifter constantly changing colors from lavender, teal and green. I couldn't decide what to do with it until I saw the octopus babies Sheri Jurnecka created recently. I contacted Sheri and arranged to send this pearl to her and asked if it would fit into one of the babies. She said she was going to create them in multiple metals and patina's and she would take photos of the pearl in each one. Yesterday I got the photos but have not made any decisions which one will be it's mantle. I will share the photos so you can see the whole collection with the names of the metals and patina's.

And asked if the silver could be custom patina'd to only treat the eyes and suction cups.

Our new octopuses will have to have a play date. The pearl you used is so beautiful. What kind of chain do you have in mind?

Hi PQ's! I love your octopuses! I remember reading about the artist a few years ago, she's very talented.

I popped into the café today because I've died and gone to heaven! I discovered a Native American jewelry artist using pearls in her designs. Not just any old pearls mind you, carved pearls! {#emotions_dlg.wub}

The trouble with life is there's no background music.
