    Default Ruth's Trip to Atlas' Pearl Farm in Bali, Indonesia

    For those who missed it, last year we held a drawing for a trip to Atlas' South Sea pearl farm in Bali, Indonesia! In order to be eligible, one had to be a member here with a minimum number of posts, and had to complete the Pearls as One specialist course.

    Long-time member Red (Ruth) won that drawing and brought a GoPro to "take us with her!"

    Enjoy!

    Loved Ruth's talk, thanks for live streaming it! Was there an explanation for the lack of A quality pearls in the shop?

    Thank you, Sanippy. My impression was that the less expensive B quality pearls sold better at this rural tourist venue, and the better pearls went to higher end jewelry shops.
