My sister who happens to be a well known T.V. make-up artist stopped by my studio- picked up a strand of pearls and mentioned ”I rarely wear pearls- they always seem so formal ..” I was struck by her comment as I actually have heard this quite a few times before. Many women feel as she does and reserve wearing pearls for their wedding day or black tie affairs. As a jewelry designer I find myself drawn to working with fresh water natural pearls and love incorporating them into my designs. I want to show you that pearls don’t have to be intimidating and worn only on special occasions. Feel free to toss them on with a t-shirt and black leather jacket, add a pair of great boots, perhaps some red lipstick and skinny jeans– and head out to that cocktail party!!!
