I recently visited a "Pearls" exhibition here in my hometown of London, England. As a child I was never a fan. I would watch my mother drape herself in her long pure white pearls. Of all her pieces this was my least favourite. As my mother, an incredibly bright, beautiful woman and so wonderfully astute clarified when one day I proclaimed "I don't like pearls mummy!" and her response was "Don't you worry darling, you will"... and there you have it folks. Genius, pure genius.
