Thanks and God bless everyone who participated. I love giving and the principal of "Give and it will be given unto you" certainly is true. The other day I was putting my groceries in the trunk of my car and a total stranger came up to me holding a fresh bouquet of flowers and she said, "These match your blouse! I think you should have them." What an unexpected treat on a hot July day.
I am working on some natural pearl & gemstone pieces for you. I hope to get them listed before too long. If you're like me, it's refreshing to wear a little pop of color. I'm especially having fun with pink rubies from Mozambique that I'm paring with USA natural pearls.
In the meantime, here is a fun mystery. I need the wisdom of Solomon here....which one is the real mother?
As you probably guessed, the answer is none of them, as it's an 18 carat natural clam pearl & not an egg. I got a little carried away taking photos of this beauty before sending it across the ocean to its new home :)
God bless, keep giving and enjoy the rest of the summer! Kari
