It is not often that I get a call from the Malaysian Ambassador to Qatar requesting to see some of my creations. When I showed him my Pearlappetite pieces, he did not waste time in selecting one from the few I presented. His reason for choosing Pearlappetite echoed my belief - Pearlappetite is very much part of Qatar; rich in pearling tradition. On 8th October 2012 I was invited to a state dinner at St. Regis Hotel in Doha.
H.E. Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansoor received a brilliant piece of Pearlappetite, bedecked with pearls, Swarovski crystal and stained corals. The glass plate was manufactured in Spain, recycled from discarded medicine bottles.
