Freshwater Pearls

Here I am hand-selecting each pearl for our Bridal collection coming soon.

I am such a perfectionist when it comes to selecting gemstones. It is seriously work-intensive on the eyes and I lost my glasses today. Can you imagine? Cycling around in India in this smog and traffic. First trip tomorrow - opticians.

Despite being at a slight disadvantage, I still really enjoyed this process of hand selecting and matching these beauties. Sketching away my design ideas on my pad, these pearls remind me of the cosmos on a starry night.

I can't wait till these beauties go into production. Watch this space for some Rosie Odette Magic.
