I was busy this summer and into the fall with some new Jewelry Designs and minor health problems at the same time. It is always a challenge to keep going some days. I turned 65 in June and I feel that my body is not keeping up with the program. So I am sorry for not having written more the past few months. I went to Europe where I am from, to visit my family and came home really exhausted and it took me months to recuperate.
In Maine where I live we have had an amazing summer with the most beautiful weather.
I have gone through a real creative phase recently which I love. Here are some of my new designs. Please go to my store for more details on these listings.
I am sorry for the inconvenience but I have worked really hard these past months with some added physical pain, it hasn’t been easy and I need a vacation. My husband and I are going to France and Italy to visit family and enjoy yummy food. We used to live in Rome in the early 70’s and have always talked about going back there for a visit. We are really looking forward to our trip. We haven’t had a pleasure trip in many years. We haven’t brushed up on our Italian either, just will have to wing it! French is my native language so being in France should be easy but I still struggle to find some words after having lived in the US for almost 40 years. The times we have traveled far and wide (as far as China and New Zealand) have been ministry trips and not exactly very relaxing. So it’s time to relax and enjoy something different and we are so looking forward to getting away after a long winter.
I will not be in my studio from May 19 to June 4 and would appreciate if you could place your orders before that time. Anything placed after May 16 will be shipped after June 4. If you have a special order in mind, please make sure to place it before May 16. Thanks so much. There are still 22 days to get your orders on the way.
I will keep you posted on what happens on our trip if I am able to publish a new post from my smart phone, otherwise it will have to wait till we get back.
Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather, I know I am…it’s been a real tough winter here in Maine. We do not have a buttercups yet, but looking forward to them…instead of snow, we will get a yellow field full of these flowers and fireflies at night. That’s the reward for living through such a hard, cold and long winter.
Just been a busy time here at The Passionate Pearl. Here are a few photos to show you Jeanne’s Little Factory. It’s been quite a stressful weekend with special orders and going back and forth by email with customers trying to find the perfect color match. These are hand picked Freshwater Pearls. Just wanted to show you what I do.
