I have been so excited to share this video of me harvesting pearls in The Philippines. What a joy to learn this very difficult skill of extracting pearls while maintaining the life of the oyster. It is tough! Most men and women do this job at least 10,000 times to reach novice status. I am having trouble getting started… in fact my teacher told me my hand is a little shaky! Next time I will try drinking less coffee! 😉 Enjoy!
This video was taken at a South Sea pearl farm in The Philippines in March 2015.
I am a modern day treasure hunter who travels the world for gorgeous pearls and amazing adventures. I own a pearl jewelry and jewelry repair business, ThePearlGirls.com, with a cute retail store in Athens, GA. I also have a Pearl Travel business and travel blog at TheWorldofPearl.com.
