Thank you to all who joined us at the CPAA’s International Pearl Design Competition (IPDC) awards ceremony and the annual Pearl Soiree held during the American Gem Trade Association’s (AGTA) GemFair Tucson, Feb. 4–9 in Tucson, Ariz. The IPDC ceremony and Soiree both happened on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the CPAA booth at AGTA and Café à la C’Art, respectively.
