Daryn asked if I could search for a Gold Pendant that was believed to be lost in their yard after hosting a party two weeks earlier. His mother-in-law had designed and crafted the solid gold vase/urn as a gift for his wife several years ago. After a thorough search of the backyard, most likely area, with my most sensitive small gold metal detector I asked Daryn of other likely areas Song, his wife, could have traveled. When he went into the house to get Song I decided to grab my Garrett Pinpointer and on my hands and knees started rooting around their small play structure. There, just under the slide and barely peeking out from the rubberized chips, was the glimmer of gold. I recovered the pendant quickly before Song had come outside and was able to give her the good news. Sobbing tears of joy and several long hugs clearly told the story of how special this piece was to her. Daryn told me this was the second time the pendant had fallen off the chain due to the clasp unhooking and that a new chain was probably their best insurance to prevent future loss.
It was such a pleasure talking with both of you and I’m glad I was able to help.
