This was supposed to be my contribution to the Mai Kai Gents CD fundraising drive. The idea, since I don't have much available cash, was to make the necklace for them to auction here, on eBay, or whatnot.

However, the necklace was apparently stolen out of their mailbox, as the Postmaster informed Iuka that there had been several mail thefts reported in the area. This was about two months ago...due to personal concerns I have been unable as yet to make up another one.

I am certain whoever took it was heartily disappointed and most likely trashed it, but if you should see it on someone or in a thrift store, you can tell them you know it's hot and there will be some bad juju headed their way unless it is returned to its rightful owner!

P.S. Thanks for the CD, Iuka, I love it!

That's really a cool piece, pj. It really has motion to it. Some jerk somewhere has a nice piece around his/her neck.

I should mention that the figures of the band members are based on original artwork by Kevin Kidney!
He's responsible for the motion!

Aaaagh!

And you're right, PJ - the *sshole who stole it will neither appreciate it, give it to someone who will, or even make a buck off of selling it!!

I *hate* crap like this!

It was a beautiful piece. I have my fingers crossed that somehow, somewhere, someday it will turn up anyway.

What a shame! I would have loved to have gotten to see it in person.
It's awful that it never made it to it's intended destination, the Gents and Mysterious Miss Mauna Loa sadly missed out
I am floored how much it looks like the drawings. Its just so darned cute!

Great work PJ! BRAVO!
Swell websites guys, I need to visit more often.

Oh no! What a terrible shame, it's a lovely piece and clearly took a lot of talent & effort to pull together. What a heartbreak. I'm glad we at least get to see it in photo form.

The person is probably wearing it with my lovely vintage hawaiian barcloth coat they stole, too!

Yes, "heartsick" is exactly what I felt when I figured out what happened. We are based in a small town and I know our mail carrier and postmaster personally and they are very trustworthy folks, so I'm pretty sure neither abscounded with the piece. A couple other folks on our street have also had some theft problems and I'm having everything sent to a P.O. box now. That all said, Purple Jade is an wonderfully talented artist and an incredibly generous person. We (The Maikai Gents & TMMML) are so appreciative of her and hope to benefit from her creativity again soon. So... the APB is out! If you see this necklace, immediately contact the authorities or PJ! Either way, I'm sure the thief will be taken care of in the appropriate manner.

Hope it somehow was misdelivered by accident.

Very sorry to hear- it's a great piece.

What a cool piece of work PJ. That Sucks it got nerped! I hope the necklace gets spotted and the theives find a rattlesnake in the next mailbox they try to pilfer.
That probally explains why Iuka's Kamapua'a book never made it to him either. Hey Judd, did the second book make it in to your nimble fingers?
