HOME FROM ASIA, HALF AWAKE, AND HEADLONG INTO PEARLS!
We enjoyed lovely weather in Tokyo for a few days, even managed to take in an antiques market where I became obsessed with these old pairs of shells, delicately painted on the inside. From what I understand they were used in a sort of memory game played by Japanese nobility (before, the internet, when people had SO much more patience). There would be a hundred or so pairs on the table and the player would identify the subtle changes in color of the top of the shell and it’s shape, checking to see if it was a perfect match by it’s fit and matching painting inside. We strolled through some beautiful parks, and before long we were on our way to Hong Kong through blue skies with a gorgeous clear view of Mt. Fuji!
Hong Kong was far from relaxing, but always fun and full of inspiration just the same. I shopped my eyes crossed for days on end. Night and day… Hong Kong is buzzing.. it never ends! I was too busy to take photos of pearls but I promise little by little they will all make their debut in front of the camera.
So here is a sneak peek into our whirlwind of uploads in preparation for our upcoming sale. I’m really excited about this season, we have so many great pearls to work with and a FANTASTIC TEAM OF SUPERHEROES HERE.. enjoying the music and creativity and laughter.. Thank you and stay tuned!
