This pearl page is dedicated to Jay’s mom, Beulah Liebenberg who passed away in 2018. Beulah was a wonderful woman; a pediatrician who later specialised in infectious diseases. After retiring she remained active and took an interest in her daughter’s world of gemstones and started stringing her own beads into her own wonderful designs, ever keen to gain more knowledge. Pearls were her favourite, as represented below. These are her designs, hand-strung and knotted by her steady doctor’s hand. We are selling her collection because, like Beulah, we believe pearls need to be worn, and everybody should have at least one beautiful pearl necklace.
