On Saturday, November 14, Laura Jean will be hosting a trunk show featuring LUSTRE freshwater pearls.
Each piece in the LUSTRE collection is hand knotted and hand drilled by a jeweler who specializes in stringing and are strung on fine Leather from Greece. Freshwater pearls come in an array of shapes, colors and sizes. Within this collection, there are pearls ranging from grey to white and some beautiful pastels peach colors.
