These are the lost earrings, any help much appreciated!
Hello
Learnt a hard lesson on playa wind - my earring backstoppers not strong enough and my most special, beloved (sentimental historical reasons) flew away. Spent hours looking for them but couldnt. Sorry for the MOOP :(

Here i attach a pict. Would really appreciate if you have found me please contact me (isabel.beagle@me.com).

One earring is long with green feathers and a couple yellowish leather strings.

The other has a golden ring with three red feathers attached to it.

MANY thanks

Isabel

Thanks, yes for sure unfortunately i was not the only one!
My friend lost a pair of orange-earthy coloured feathers - just like the ones in the pic attached but orange instead of blue. Just in case :)

Thanks

Reason you don't wear shit like this in the wind. It becomes MOOP, even if the feathers don't break.

Thank you. I thought i had already said that i really regretted it and lesson was indeed learnt. But thanks for the gentle reminder.

no, not one of those in orange.
after i found the feather earring, i wore it around (to Robot Heart, at sunrise),
similar to the one I found sell for about $12/pair, some are even less but of course sentimental value has no price

You did apologize for the MOOP. I just wanted to reinforce it. There's whole lists of stuff that one should reconsider wearing/bringing to the playa, and some of them aren't obvious..like fringe, beads, astro-turf, hot-glued appliqu├ęs...I'm our camp's MOOP Nazi so I think about MOOP all year.

Hugs all around in a year, o.k.? I'm happy that tamarakay got to experience our little miracle, too. We are neighbors on playa. One nice little world.

I don't know. That wasn't my final takeaway ... based on this:
