Mysterious Mother of Pearl and Antique Silver

I love all things bright and shiny, but what I love most are objects and art with a certain luminesse. And mother of pearl has that special luminous quality that I gravitate to. Combined with silver, it speaks of primordial oceans in an almost mystical manner. The above knives, with their Mother of Pearl handles and sterling ferrules,  are some that I use on a regular basis.
And why not? I am a believer in using nice things every day. Everyday is a special occasion and beautiful things should be enjoyed. Beauty elevates our spirit and surrounding ourselves with beauty, even in the smallest things, brings positivity to our lives.
Yesterday I ate caviar for breakfast..alone... in my PJ's.  Indulgence for me is not greedy, it is about being in the moment and enjoying that moment fully.
