I was getting ready to eat my dinner last night when I received a call from Judith who had lost her earring in the sands of the beach. She had been walking along when she adjusted her hat. When she moved her hat, she heard a click, and reached up to notice one of the earrings her grandmother had given her was missing, it must have hooked in her hair which moved with her hat. She desperately searched for it as did her friends and some of the other beach goers to no avail. She then was given my number, and called for help. I was only 20 to 30 minutes away, so I grabbed my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach Judith and I found each other, and she led me to the area of the loss. I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area by deductive reasoning. I began my search as I thought it should be done. My first signal was a hair pin. I then, as I moved in closer to where Judith and her friends had been sitting, received a real good sound in the head phones, and dug with my scoop. As I pulled the scoop out Judith told me her friends were sure the loss took place further out, and not where I was searching. While she was explaining this to me, I was looking at her earring in my scoop. That is when I reached in and held up her earring jokingly stating that the ring I found could not be the one we were looking for. Withing 2 minutes I was able to hand her earring back to her. Right away instant joy flooded her, and everybody around got excited about the recovery. When inquiring further about her grandmother and what this gift meant to Judith, I could see that it was a very emotional recovery indeed. What a wonderful thing to be able to produce this type of joy when something you thought was lost for good is found and returned.

I received an email from Carli last night about 10:15 asking if I could help her find her lost diamond stud earring she lost at the beach in the sand. I have been on enough searches for stud earrings to know that they are one of the most difficult items to find, in fact most detectors won’t even pick them up, and I made sure I let her know this upfront. I asked her about the spot of the loss, and she said it was lost on the towel line, which the county mechanically cleans on this beach daily, so I knew that this search was important. Carli was thinking early the next morning, when I told her I would meet her at the beach in 30 minutes, because of the type of search and the fact that there were too many factors that could make finding such a small item harder by the hour. We agreed to meet last night, and I was on my way.

I arrived just after 11:00, and she took me out to the spot. I had told Carli that the closer she could get me to the area would increase the likelihood of a recovery. She told me the earring came off her right ear when she was removing a piece of clothing so she had focused her search in that area earlier in the day. I told her though that I was going to search a wider area, because I have experienced that jewelry does weird things when it comes off. I found a few items such as foil, and a bobby pin, that Carli identified as hers. About 11:30, I was in an area that was to the left of her original position by about 10 feet when I received a good signal. I dug with my plastic trowel, and delicately shook the sand from the curved surface, when something sparkled. Carli’s husband said in the darkness with the flashlights that the sparkle caught his eye as well even as he was standing a few feet away. I reached down and then held up the earring Carli had lost. She expressed a considerable amount of excitement, saying “it was like a needle in a haystack”, which it truly was. The earrings I later found out had been given to her for a birthday present, what more can be said; the story continues. The attached picture says it all. Glad to be a maker of smiles.

About 4 hours after finding a ring in Pacific Palisades in the morning on 1-2-16, I received a call from Aggie about her missing earring. She had been at the beach with her family, and when leaving realized it missing. Knowing that some earrings can cause fits for detectorists, I asked what kind of earring it was, and she replied it was a stud earring. My heart sunk; the hardest type of earring to find, and in beach sand. I told her I would be there in 30 minutes, and then I would try to see if my detectors would be able to pick it up at all, seeing she still had one that was not gone.

When we met at the beach Aggie showed me the other earring, and when I saw it my hope increased. Although it was small, the stone was completely surrounded by the gold mount, and not just attached by gold wires. Even with that my detector would only pick it up at about 4 inches, but with the moist sand, I was hopeful the little item did not sink too far. The area she showed me was quite large, but narrow, so I was not going to have to stretch the search too far. I began, and searched for about 10 minutes, when Aggie began to rethink the possibilities of the loss, so we switched the search area. I searched again for about 10 more minutes, and she again asked me to look in another area. I find a lot of times people can remember things that help in the search when they are there when I am searching.  When we were at this last location, I noticed a patch of sand that had been disturbed, and asked if that was where they had been sitting. She said it was, so I started searching that area when I got the sound I was looking for. Because the earring was so small and delicate, I used a plastic trowel, and a pin pointer to recover it. When I found it Aggie couldn’t believe it; so much sand, and such a little item.

Aggie then explained that this pair of earrings were given to her for a 10th wedding anniversary, which explained why they were so precious. A very happy day, and a great big smile to start the new year with.
