    Default Trios Studio Pearl Party!

    Apologies for posting so late ~ getting photos from iphone was challenging. Trios was very busy when I got there, but Eric Braunwert, Kathe Mai's husband and owner of Columbia Gem House was available to chat. He allowed me to photograph the Cortez Pearls and brought from the back room the lovely Cortez mabes with the woven bezels shown in the last photo. Eric and Kathe have been supporters and distributors of Cortez Pearls since their earliest years. Columbia Gem House is committed to "fair trade and responsibly sourced gems," so a great source to be aware of, imo.
