Link-It Pearl-ing with pearltrees (A Spectrum of Reviews) Okay, so when I was invited to a "pearltrees" event, I envisioned something like bath beads, or - the obvious one - jewelry. I thought of an ornate wire tree sculpture upon which to hang my beautiful pearl necklaces (of which I have zero.)

My various trees are always a work in progress.
