Pearls sit at the top of the “gem” list in popularity but remain a mystery to many jewelry makers about how they’re actually made.

During this 2 hour class you’ll learn about the pearl culturing process. I’ll demonstrate how a nucleus is implanted in oysters using instruments and tools employed by technicians who preform the “seeding” operation. We’ll cover information about salt and freshwater pearls from the South Pacific, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, China & the US.
