I had just got a pair of Pearl earings back from being repaired at the jewellers yesterday afternoon. It was just one pearl that came off of one post really. But I had asked the jeweller to extend the little bit of metal that goes into the actual pearls themselves as the stock was too short and the pearls had a bad habit of falling off. Long story short, last night I had a dream about the painting the girl with a pearl earing and I was watching someone painting it. I can't remember anything else in the dream though. Well when I woke up this morning and read the news I was very surprised to see this article talking about the painting. I thought how symbolic is that.
