    Ms.Crystal…

    I did it…finally! Actually, my wonderful Daughter did. What a surprise! She knew I was looking for a red Seahorse (ultra rare!) and she found one and surprised me with it! The Seahorse came in many other colors of course, but the red is particularly hard to come by, if at all, anymore. Isn’t he beautiful, all three inches of him!
    So now I have the entire sea life collection! My first piece was the Angel Fish. That was when I knew I had to have them all. I really thought I would never find the Dolphin, but by sheer luck, I did. The Lobster and Seahorse are from my Daughter. The Starfish was a fluke, came across it for little to nothing! Miss Crab made up for that, as she cost me a pretty penny, but so worth it! I thought the turtle was included, but a D & E expert and friend told me different . She congratulated me on completing my set, and told me now, this collection would go for 2-3 times “maybe more” than what I paid for them separately! Her words!!
    But I’ll never sell! It took too many years and hard looking, for these treasures to go to anyone but my Daughter, along with my other jewelry….! (I just hope she doesn’t wear any camping or hiking..lol)
    I’M SO HAPPY!!
    ENJOY!

      Way to go Eileen! So great she found the seahorse for you, and finding 3 out of 6 for you is also great. I love all of them.

      How awesome!

      This is indeed a showstopper, even with the other rarities it looks like a key piece, something that unlocks the beauty of the whole set. Prong set, it has the care and rarity of a fine jewellery piece. This piece along with the crab are my favourites in this fantastic set !~

      Wonderful. Your collection is made only that much special because your Daughter was part of your quest. : }

      Thanks Mani! It is hard to pick a favorite, but I lean towards Miss Crab! Then again I love them all for different reasons. Once again, thank you for such kind words…always!

      Yes Mary, Michele is a dear! No one could ask for a sweeter Daughter, I am so blessed in that regard!

      Thanks MrsT. Awesome is a good descriptive word!

      Miss Crab is my favorite too Phil! Great minds think alike! And yes, the majority of D & E’s work was prong set, even the tiny stones around the dolphin and angel fishes “florette” eyes!

      Thank you Lori, yes, it makes them so much more special that Michele thought of her Mother, especially since her days are so busy raising three boys and working full time!

      Pascale, she has the “eye” because her Mother keeps drilling it in her head! Ha! Her interests are hiking and backpacking and camping ( as you well know) , but I try and slip some jewelry info in there every chance I get!

      Thanks Scott, it was a long journey to complete this collection, but what a thrill that it’s done!
      My next “crusade” is going to just as fun, Ha!

      Thanks again everyone for loving and commenting on my final “piece of the puzzle”
      Love, love!

      Thank you so much AirFresh! Yes, it took a few years and lots of $$$ to finally complete this collection. But what fun in doing so. I am now going to start looking for “ on the branch” pieces. These include a parrot , a bird, a bunny, and a butterfly ( only butterfly I want in my collection). “Just keep looking”!

      And thank you for the love, Searching 1! Very kind of you!
