Hollow Natural Pearl Size of a Hand
January 03, 2024

Welcome back from the flurry of decorating, gift-giving and deep family discussions!

I hope your holidays were fun and refreshing - even though I know it's the busiest time of year.

Hollow Pearl Size of a Man's Hand

Have you ever seen a hollow pearl the size of a man's hand that looks like a bird without its head and tail feathers?

Rare Large Hollow Pearl

This large hollow blister pearl was with me for a time and the more I looked at it, the more it resembled a headless bird.

It was obviously too big for jewelry and so it could only be a natural curiosity for someone's Curiosity Shelf but I could not help but think it had more potential than just sitting on someone's shelf getting dusty.

Fits into a Man's Hand

When I took it with me to a park one day and photographed it in a tree, I was convinced. Yes, it could be made into a bird with a sterling silver or gold head and matching tail feathers.

Since it was hollow, why not make it into a stunning one-of-a-kind perfume bottle? A modern day useful objet d'art.

However, I may never know if the owners made it into a perfume bottle. I certainly did suggest it and I hope they used my idea.

What do you think? Was it a good idea?

Do you like objets d'art?

Hosting a Movie Premiere

Right before Christmas, three of my children - Andrew, Sarah, John, and I, enjoyed preparing for and hosting a local premiere for a movie a friend of ours, Ryan T. Murphy, made in Hollywood this year.

It's a movie about Batman. We were so proud of him for doing this and we wanted to encourage him. It was so much fun!

Here's a link in case you are interested.

God bless and thank you for being a part of KariPearls.

I hope 2024 is your best year ever!
