Re: Big, Big Ruckus news...maybe, fingers crossed it happens

The google chats were never meant to be QVC/Shopping channel quality productions. They are improving equipment to make them better each time. I enjoy them for what they are. Fun and informational.

Re: Big, Big Ruckus news...maybe, fingers crossed it happens

The last three years in a Mansion and features guest speakers, pearl farmers, nucleus creator, vendors and even movie filmers/producers. The president of the Cultu...

Re: If you're going to the Ruckus and are a restringer....

I have bought from Josh and paid cash both times. I am planning on getting something from Douglas, but he's from Mexico. US dollars cash will work with him too. Sarah may have one of those square things for a cell phone, but she may take checks. You could contact her this week and ask.

Re: If you're going to the Ruckus and are a restringer....

CRD, I always bring a envelope of cash in different denominations. That way I can have enough but not go crazy. PP takes CC but if you are buying from Josh, Sarah or Douglas I don't know, a check may work. Cash always works.

I hope this happens. It was fun skyping with people in other countries at the Vulcan Mansion ruckus. They should be able to see the fun too.

Re: Activating the PS phone tree - need help SS pendant!

If you don't ask them what they have in stock that meets your criteria, how will you know what they have? Most have items in their vaults they don't list on their sites. I guess YOU will have to do the work.

The other day I was restringing a multi color rope and didn't have the color I needed. Arrrrrg. I ended up using gold but wish I had shell in my collection of BS. I placed my ord...

Re: Would you rather...

Probably the multi color. I wear multi color more than the whites, but both have their place. The multi color can be worn with more clothing choices and earring colors and are less formal and can be dressed up or down.

Kay, I'm glad you're going to Saturday festivities. I can't take my Vietnamese two strand necklace, but I can take my Vietnamese rope it was converted to.... Nothing stays looking like it was for long.

Re: Where can I find a Tahitian rope?

It depends on the size of pearls you select. Smaller MM pearls take shorter ropes to go around your neck. Ask PP for advise. They can show you photos with the pearls on a real person's neck.

Re: akoyas with odd problem

I'm not suggesting a place to send it, just thinking out loud. Didn't Jeremy send a cut MOP in for identification when they were trying to find out if fireballs were nucleated with endangered giant clam nucleus. It would mean the OP sacrificing a pearl for our curiosity.

Re: akoyas with odd problem

Pattye, I thought I read they use material that expands and contracts at the same rate as the nacre when nucleating mollusks. Jeremy or someone on PG was talking about removing findings using hot water, the findings loosened but the bead and nacre were fine. If the farmer who created this akoya stra...

The bead they insert into the mollusk is larger than akoya, so if you are looking for smaller pearls White, golden SS pearls may not be what you're shopping for.

Re: Male in need of pearl advice

PS. You may want to consider a solid color strand of smaller MM Tahitians. They are everywhere on TV and can be worn dressed up or with jeans and tee shirts. White pearls are more formal and may be worn less than a strand of Tahitians. At least I seem to grab them for all occasions.
