About UsWelcome to my store in Borrego Springs California. We are located in a small village central to the Anza Borrego State Park in San Diego County.
I enjoy making fashion jewelry, especially cultured pearl necklaces and love going to estate sales to purchase special items to be sold in my store. Like gem stones, cultured pearls come from all over the world. In some countries the cultured pearl business is considered agriculture because many small farms have a fresh water pond for the purpose of growing "cultured" fresh water pearls. The cultured salt water pearl business is often a mom and pop operation as well.
When I refer to the pearls in my shop as being "natural" in color I mean they have not gone through a color enhancement process. Their color is a result of the color inside of the mollusk the pearl was grown in. My item descriptions indicate when the pearls in a piece are natural in color or if their color has been enhanced. There are several color enhancing techniques used in the pearl industry. The artistic skill in applying a technique to improve the color, luster and orient of a pearl is considered when establishing grade quality of the gem.
My formal education is in Fine Arts with GIA certification in diamond and pearl grading.
I am delighted to bring you "pearls to inspire a wardrobe,"
