I thought it was time to come onboard and introduce myself. Iíve been reading the posts for some time now, and learning tonnes of great pearl information. Pearls are my obsession - thatís putting it mildly. Iím a recent graduate of the GIA Pearls Course. Loved it! This year Iíll realize my dream of importing pearls from China to string and sell in my own small, one-woman, business. I plan to buy in Hong Kong in March (International Jewellery Trade Show) to get my feet wet, and when I feel confident Iíll venture to Zhuji. Greetings to everyone, and huge thanks for being so generous with your valuable knowledge.
