“Dominican Memories”

  

Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: In honor of Sam's friend,Omayra, who is visiting for a few days from the Dominican Republic. The girls met 2 years ago when they participated in the exchange program sponsored by their schools.

*Larimar is mined only in the Dominican Republic. I've paired it with amazonite and silver a few times.

    Nice pick, Jeanne! Too bad there’s not more of that larimar, huh?

    I was just at a Dominican party in NJ last night. It was a surprise birthday party for our friend who just came back from DR the night before. He was tired but we all still had a blast.

    Sounds like a lot of fun, Ivy.
    Seems we’re having a party tonight!
    Sam invited the kids from the exchange for burgers and dogs and it’s snowballed to include parents.
    Won’t my husband be surprised when he gets home from work to learn that he’s grilling for 20 or so people.

    Jeanne, what a stunning combo — straight into my faves! :D Sounds as if you’re going to have a fun evening! Too bad you can’t figure out a socially acceptable way to combine it into a home jewelry party…..LOL :D

    I’m picturing Larry coming home from work, thinking he’s going to kick back, eat dinner, watch a little TV, go to bed early…..ROTFLOL

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    You are a riot, Lynn!
    Well – I could have a few pieces displayed in the bathrooms – LOL

    As for Larry – he is expecting about 8-10 kids. He just doesn’t know that he has to be sociable. especially since he left home at 5 am and 5 hrs driving each way today.

    Poor, poor Larry … maybe alittle pre-party warning might not be amiss … hhhmmm … Jeanne, maybe Sam, Omayra and you could model your jewelry at the party … every half an hour or so slip in and come out wearing different pieces … ????

    Now there’s a thought! I like the way you think Christine.
    We could all wear larimar in honor of the Dominicans!
    I have two amber pieces in the works, but doubt they’ll be ready. oh – i know – I can hang them on busts and hide the loose ends.

    And you’re right – maybe I should call the hubby. I’m going to have to disappear soon. Need to go buy more chopmeat and make some potato salad.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Christine, I am ROTFLOL because I was just going to suggest that Jeanne, Sam, and Omayra drape themselves in as many of Jeanne’s creations as possible for the party!!! :D Your idea is better, because they can be live displays that change the wares throughout the evening! ;-) Now if Jeanne can just persuade Larry to wear some of her creations…….pushing the envelope?

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    definitely pushing the envelope!!!!

  17. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Well……OK. LOL

  18. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I think some of your displays like you used for the fair could be set up on the food table next to the potato salad and other dishes. ;-)

    ROTFLMAO

    did I get that right, Lynn!

  20. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Yes! Do you not think that would be considered “socially acceptable”? ;-) I’m also picturing Sam’s face when she sees the displays all set out among the dishes of food and you standing there, dripping in jewelry……ROTFLMAO

  21. CAS
    CAS says:

    Well, hopefully, Jeanne as you sell “off your neck” jewelry, you’ll just have to go and put on new pieces! I bet the girls would get a big kick out of being jewelry “fashion models” for the evening. I agree that I wouldn’t make Larry wear any, he’ll be much too busy cooking. Good luck, and have FUN!!!!! Hugs! :D

    ok – so – the bathrooms I can manage, and my office/bead room will be left open with prominent diplays . Too bad I don’t have a dresser in my bedroom, but there is a full length mirror that can be draped. Maybe the invitation from my last party blown up on the frig. and business cards on every table. I think I’ll pass on pearls in the potato salad and my husband is well past playing “pretty, pretty princess”. Did I miss anything?

  23. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s true, Christine, Larry will be busy cooking and recovering from the shock of coming home to a houseful of people! ROTFLOL Plus, Jeanne won’t want grilling splatters on her lovely pieces! :D

    Jeanne, have a wonderful, fun-filled evening!!! :D
