Got out for a couple hours in a Chowchilla park and found a lot of trash and clad. Got three ring 2 I know for sure are just junk and one I don't know yet but I imagine probably much the same as the other 2. 2 cheap crosses on smashed and a small earring. Not too bad though I had a good time actually finding things that weren't pull tabs or beer caps.

Thank you I really appreciate it. Even if I get flustered at times I'll always love the hobby and keep doing it. Doesn't matter if I find good stuff or not. Just good to be outside and have something to keep my generalized anxiety disorder mind occupied.

Sounds like you had some fun detecting all that jewelry. Hope to hear that the other ring is not junk.
I had a good time but lol that area was a little seedy so was on guard the whole time

very cool, love finding bling and vintage jewelry even if it isn't a precious metal. Seems like your finds are improving, wtg

I've been really concentrating on not missing any mid tone targets and end up digging way more tabs than I used to, so after 40 tabs in a row I get pretty exited when costume jewelry comes up. I always think "now that could just as easily been a gold ring that slipped off"!
Good fun, looking forward to your next post!

Way late to this party. Sorry I missed your post, JVA5th. I will have to agree it’s still fun. Those are pretty rings. Any age on any of them? I can’t quite figure it out but some of the old costume jewelry is selling for more than they’re worth. IMO from what I have looked up. And it gives you something to casually give away to a friend or relative. Congratulations buddy. I hope you have a good new year.

I as well WD
Missed your post up John, must of been done on the morning after the new keg was opened.
Ah the nitro moments of digging, the rush of excitement that never gets old.
Then one fine day when least expecting it-the real deal is laying in the dirt staring back at you.
Well done on the recoveries John.
