Pearl Friends Interviews: Barbara and Sylvie

Continuing our series of Pearl Friend interviews, pearl connoisseurs Barbara and Sylvie, interview with Cynde and Wendy at the 2014 Pearl-Guide Ruckus.

This was the first ruckus for both of them but they immediately fit in like regulars and I know they will be from now on!

Pearl Friends: Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls

Continuing our series of Pearl Friend interviews, a man who needs little introduction, Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls interviews with Cynde and Wendy at the 2014 Pearl-Guide Ruckus.

I’ve been friends with Josh for about a decade and you would be hard-pressed to find a more friendly and passionate man. He loves what he does and he loves life!

Enjoy!

Pearl Friends: Douglas McLaurin

In April we started a series called Pearl Friends and interviewed two friends and customers who have amazing collections of pearl jewelry, Cynde and Wendy.

We decided to wait until the annual Pearl-Guide ruckus for the opportunity to interview more pearl friends and Cynde and Wendy turned the tables on us — they decided to do the interviews and we decided to film them!

This first interview is with Douglas McLaurin and is fascinating! I’ve been to his farm and consider him a very good friend and even I learned a couple things from this interview.

Enjoy!
