OK... Now I really, really wanted to give the specifics of who won which grab bag with *what* number.

Unfortunately, and I am NOT blaming anyone here because I believe I forgot to specify this point, many many people PMed me with 5 SEPERATE PMS for their 5 gueeses. In total, about 60 DT members participated and I have several hundred PMs to sort through...

I have checked and re-checked to make sure that the people who I will be listing were the ONLY ones who won for the SPECIFIC grab bag with the SPECIFIC number...

These are the people who will be receiving South Sea Pearls shortly. All Winners are to EMAIL me with their address

shannon@pacific.net.sg

The winners are:

DBerg
WinYan
Atalantah
Tieru
CyberKat

There are THREE additional winners for having guessed the same numbers for one of the grab bags as listed above:

Pookarina
Jasmin
MavMom

who will also be receiving South Sea Pearls.

I have decided to supplant my Grab bag offer slightly by offering a free 18K w/g simple pendant loop and pin for the 7 winners FOC. Please let me know if you want this to be done to the pearl (drilled and glued)


Next up will be a grab bag for a jade pendant with tapered baguette diamond channel set bale in 18K w/g

Also to come, another South Sea Pearl Grab bag, this time for two perfect (no blemishes, very good luster) 11 mm South Sea gray pearls, and a beautiful drop shape silver gray Mabe Pearl

I'm hoping that noone will flame me for the way this contest was run- it was not entirely to my liking either, but it is too much of an administrative nightmare to handle it the way I originally planned.

Congratulations to all the winners!

And thank you to mercier for organizing this contest. Sorry you had to wade through so many PMs, hope your vision is not blurred.

One thing I just wanted to clarify. There are 8 winners, right?

Thank you Mercier for the fabulous contest. I really love those gray pearls. They are awesome! You have the biggest heart of anyone that I know. Also, thank you for extending our winnings by putting w/gold pendant loops on for us. That is extra nice and I really appreciate it. You're a great guy!

You can probably hear us *all* screaming in Singapore, I never won anything either...I mean Nothing, NADA, ziltch!

I'm generally so unlucky once I went to a party with 100 door prizes, there were 102 attendees and I was one of the two who didn't win a prize!

I guess you changed my luck, and thanks Mercier from the bottom of my heart!! (which is going pitty-pat right now!

Congrats to all the winners!

Mercier - Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm so excited - and it is so kind of you to add the pendant loop! I've recently deveolped a passion for pearls and mentioned in an earlier thread that my husband took me to see a special exhibit on pearls at our local museum! You are one of the sweetest people to grace DT! YEah!
