Pearl Friends Interviews: Hisano and Barbara discuss little h

I’ve been so fortunate to spend the past half decade with a truly talented artist and pearl designer who never ceases to amaze me with her creative works both with pearls and without.

Hisano was recently honored by the Cultured Pearl Association of America winning The CPAA International Pearl Design Competition’s Orient Award for compelling design esthetic and inspiring a new affinity for pearls for her Pearl Geode designs.

Hisano’s little h line will be debuting at the Design Center in Las Vegas during the annual JCK Jewelry Show. I’m so proud of her.

Our good friend, client and long-time Pearl-Guide member spent a couple of days with us this past week and decided to interview Hisano in a live webinar. In case you missed it, the recorded version is below!

Pearl Friends Interviews: Michael Rivers

Michael Rivers is one the longest-standing members of the Pearl-Guide forum community and someone I consider a close friend. He even officiated our wedding.

Michael has a very interesting business. He does deal in pearls, but his primary business is dealing in shell nuclei. At the 2014 Pearl-Guide Ruckus, he sat down with Cynde and Wendy for an interview.
