    Default storing pearls

    This one's for @pearlescence how do you store your pearls, both before use and once you've set them in jewellery. Usually i store finished work in plastic bags to protect from tarnish.

    Don't forget the anti tarnish tabs for metal.

    Don't forget to do some self promotion when your book is out, Wendy.

    I'm probably going to hold off on the big push until after Christmas. Though I think marketing it as a perfect valentine present is a stretch too far even for me. Couldn't resist that plug though.

    For anyone who is interested - the photo shows the huge bags of strands of pearls. I'll go through a whole bag like that to select maybe one or two top good'uns. The only way to get the best pearls is to select yourself (or find someone who you can rely on to do the selecting for you). The bag are heavy. You have to be strong to deal in pearls!

    I did think about Valentines Day too as I never get anything but to most a book about Pearls might not go down well!

    Thank you! At the moment so do I. Have done the first pass at page proofs and am waiting for the second, corrected version.
    Here's a really early peek at the front and back cover
