A few years ago my cousin sent me this beautiful picture of my Grandma, and it reminded me of what a wonderful lady she was. Looking at it closely, I noticed she is wearing pearls. Now, every time I look at this picture I smile because I not only love pearls but also love creating jewelry pieces with them. Often when I make a piece of jewelry that has no pearls, I will dangle a pearl off the closure. Pearls are a symbol of peace - with everyone's hectic schedules, who couldn't use more of it in their lives? This last weekend in the USA Today section of the paper fashion consultant Tim Gunn wrote how a strand of pearls are a "must have" for spring. You can find the article here:
I simply had to share this picture of my grandma and Tim's must have for this Spring with my customers. Pearls never go out of style and will always be fashionable.
That said, enjoy your pearls!
