ABOUT THE ARTIST
I'm Julie Salvetti, a trained gemologist and jewelry appraiser with a specialty in rare cultured pearls. I exhibit at juried art shows thru out the southeast US, and am honored to be chosen to exhibit online.
Cultured pearls are the only gem that is born in the body of a living organism. They are as unique and organic as we are! The characteristics you'll see on the surface of these amazing gems, the natural colorations, the lustrous internal glow of each pearl as well as the markings and interesting shapes is testament to the organic nature of these precious gems of the sea! Ask me about my "experience" with an oyster that triggered my curiosity of pearls.
It is within our imperfections that true beauty lies. Be the pearl, y'all!
