Tapper's associate Marina Ovsepian remembers taking her mother's pearls and beads apart as a young child and re-stringing them for her.
Ever since that time, Marina's passion has been for beautiful jewelry, and she now creates some of the most stunning, original pieces you could imagine.
“The possibilities are endless,” says Marina – pearls of every shape and color imaginable, turquoise, aquamarine, amethysts, garnets, and other beautiful semi-precious beads can be used to create a magnificent work of what is truly wearable art.
Most people don't know that pearls should be re-strung, on average, once a year. Regular wear, body oils and perspiration, cosmetics, and even environmental pollutants can weaken the tight knots that keep your pearls from bumping and scraping each other and from falling off your neck and scattering!
“Many people go for years without having their pearls re-strung,” says Marina. “They don't even realize what a chance they're taking, what they are doing to the value of their investment. In order to ensure that your pearls maintain their luster for generations to come, they need to be inspected and cleaned or re-strung if needed.”
Whether you would like Marina to design a necklace or bracelet for you, or you have a strand of pearls or beads that needs re-stringing, cleaning or updating, trust Tapper's for your custom jewelry design needs.
