Faini Designs Jewelry Studio featured two key note speakers at a recent studio event. Gerard Faini and Mary Howard (with the help of her daughter Megan) were the center of attention in front of over forty women that were invited by Mary and Megan Howard of Robert W. Baird & Co. along with guests from Faini Designs Jewelry Studio.
The focus of the program was not only to entertain, to feed the hungry and thirsty; but to inform participants about two key areas. The first part of the meeting was to better inform everyone about some of the various things to take into consideration in life as we all get a little bit older, a little bit wealthier and maybe a little bit wiser. Mary Howard shared with the group one of her main purposes in life. It is to help others, to the best of her and Megan’s ability, in making the right decisions to utilize what people have to enjoy the rest of their life.
Gerard took the second half of the night to share some of his wisdom in the area of pearls. He covered a very broad spectrum of the pearl industry from fresh water, saltwater, South Sea, Tahitan, natural vs. cultured, oyster, button, baroque and more. He fielded a lot of questions from the crowd and did pass around different strands of pearls, pearl hanks and pendants to the ladies.
Several door prizes were awarded throughout the evening along with a lovely gift bag for all attending. Here is the grand prize winner showing off her new multi colored strand of freshwater button cultured pearls.
