Ashley called me regarding a charm that had fallen from her daughter’s necklace into the sand at the beach. It had just happened, and they hadn’t left the area, so I knew the chances of a recovery were high. I let her know that I would be on my way.

When I got there, I found where Ashley and her family were sitting, and she showed me the area of the loss, it was a very small area. I began sweeping my coil over the spot, and received a good solid signal, put my scoop in, and nothing. I went over it again, put my scoop in, nothing. Then I asked Ashley if the charm would fall through the openings on my scoop, and she said it would. I then began hand sifting for the charm, but was unable to find it, although I knew it was there. We were able to borrow a nearby child’s sand sifter, and in one scoop, had the charm safely recovered. Sand is very hard to find lost jewelry in because it almost acts as a fluid, moving the item around as you look for it. Even though it was hard to retrieve this charm, with my equipment we knew where to look, and were finally successful. Happy mom, and daughter, this was a great recovery.
