It shouldn't have come as a surprise to me when I met Huan Mei's husband, that Lao Yen, as he's called, is just a passionate and joyful as his wife!
After talking with Huan Mei and Lao Yen about making some product samples (oh, you're going to LOVE these!), I asked them if we could take a quick family photo. The four of them had too much fun with one another and laughed through the whole thing. Jack tried to eat sunflower seeds while I took photos...
They were so proud to show me the big basket of rings in-the-works. Lao Yen sells these in the city, but he and Huan Mei are super-excited to to be marketing these online too! They can make them according to US ring sizes so don't worry, you'll get a chance to wear one of these beauties no matter what your size.
Lao Yen wanted to give me a few rings to take pictures of, so he pulled out his handy pliers and put the finishing touches to a handful of rings.
Their house is very dimly lit - electricity is hard to come by when you're living in Huan Mei's situation, so I took the rings outside to photograph. There were eggplants and hot peppers out drying on the widow sill... quite an interesting background, to say the least!
...and then came the hand modeling! Isn't Huan Mei's hand lovely?
more coming later...
