It is October 2018 and I have been on a buying trip to Beijing. Such high quality pearls at the Beijing Pearl Market. There was a little gentle bargaining with my favourite lady, and I came away with such lustrous beauties that I can't wait to design some holiday jewellery!
After Beijing, I travelled to Lhasa, Tibet. The altitude at 12,000 feet was an experience, and at 16,000 feet, because of the thin air, the sky was an astonishing deep blue. I sourced some lovely locally-made beads and I am already designing! This trip will linger forever...
