The first edition (2007) had white borders, the second edition (2008) has dark borders and an expanded companion book.
The symbolism of the Pearls of Wisdom includes elements of
the Triple Goddess, the language of flowers, Runes and colour. The colours are inspired by the artist's time in the caribbean. It is an optimistic deck on which the author notes:
"Born out of great sorrow, the loss of my 9 year old son, my mother and
my health, the Pearls Deck was my art therapy. The paintings became my
path back to wellness, out the dark dungeon of depression and ill
health. I painted what I needed to see and it is my hope that the
images in this deck, along with the optimistic pearls of wisdom, will
bring a measure of healing to all those who use it."
The deck follows traditional structure, with suits of Wands,
Cups, Swords, and Pentacles, and the Court Cards entitled Page, Knight,
Queen and King. The Major Arcana have traditional titles, with Strength
as VIII and Justice as XI.
The reversible backs of the cards show pearls, rainbows, flaming heads of the
Candles and a spiral,
their intended symbolic meaning is explained in the companion book.
