While we were walking around Redondo Pier, my brother steered me and his wife over to the pearl store. You pay to choose an oyster, and whatever pearl it contains is yours.
Linda and I each selected our oyster and the proprietress went to work shucking them and extracting our pearls. Linda got a cream-colored one. Mine was silver.
Brother sprang for mounting them too. Sweet!
Linda chose a pendant.
I chose a ring.
Now that would be heaven. Pearls are my favorite! Love the tones in the photos.
Thank you. It was a fun diversion during a sad time.
Can I reblog this ? We’re just about to launch a wordpress site for Mie Pearl and your post turned up in the related posts!
Photo’s look great!
