PEARLS are perfect for Mom and the Graduate. They work with silk and denim and everything in between. That's why I picked them for this month's special. Find your perfect piece with pearls and take 20% off this month.
Pearls have been symbols of wealth, status and religious belief since antiquity. Almost 6,000 years ago in the Persian Gulf area, people were sometimes buried with a pearl in their right hand. 
In Renaissance Europe, Lisbon and Seville were the centers of the pearl trade. The shops had massive amounts of pearls gathered from India, the Persian Gulf and the Caribbean. Pearls were worn by the powerful and the wealthy. Irregularly shaped, or baroque, pearls were especially admired.
When cultured pearls came on the international market in the 1930s, pearls became more available and affordable. By the 1950s, it became a custom to gift girls in their teens with a strand of white pearls as well as tradition for pearls to be worn by brides. White, round pearls were the ones in high demand. We have come full circle to valuing all shapes and colors of pearls in recent years. Today pearls have gone from being something worn on special occasions to a staple of every day wear.

Just managed my very own comedy scene in the driveway loading a table into the car. The wind caught it just right and put me off balance just enough to land on my ...pride. Pulled a muscle in my shoulder, not badly I think, but don't think any more loading and unloading is my best bet for the day.
I'll tend to it today. Come see me tomorrow at Guero's Art Spot from 11 to 6.
