Julia-Ray-Broome- Pearl

Julia Ray – Always Pearls

I think I have loved pearls since I was about 10 years old. That seems to be my first memory of them and being given a small pearl ring. After over 20 years in the industry, I just still can’t get enough of them. After a trip to Broome recently and doing a tour of Willy Creek Pearls, I can now say I have seen pearling in action and understand even more so now, the value of these incredible jewels. I now have a 17 mm pearl that I chose from all the pearls in the store, quite remarkable really, as there were so many as you can well imagine and I just knew this was for me.

Pearls are like that. They are organic miracles from the water they have a quality all of their very own. Somehow I always feel fantastic when I wear my pearls. Either an earring, pearl bracelet, a ring or necklace. If you know me well, you will know that I simply must wear pearls or a pearl on any given day. Funnily enough my Mum is the same and wears hers daily, without fail. I feel very connected to pearls and therefore pearl jewellery and adore making it, it’s just wonderful, doing something you love at any time of your life.
