Ok, I really don't have any wisdom to share, but I do have pictures of pretty earrings! :) I've been in a pearl mood lately. I love working with pearls and think you can wear pearls any time! Don't save them for dressy occasions! I love to wear pearls with khakis and a white blouse. Pearls can be as fresh and modern. Layer your pearls with other jewelry ... Mix it up and have fun experimenting!
