I have a long history of wearing and loving pearls.
When I wanted a pair of big, baroque studs for everyday wear, I couldn't find any to buy. A pearl dealer in Los Angeles had thousand-dollar pairs. I didn't feel comfortable with the hundred-dollar pairs I found online. And no store had anything in stock.
So I made my own, and realized I wasn't the only one who appreciated accessibly priced, wild and wonderful pearls.
Now I sell here, on Etsy, at artisan markets in Toronto, through wholesale, and by appointment in my home.
Every month, I donate jewelry to Elizabeth Fry Toronto (www.efrytoronto.org) which is a charitable organization helping women break the cycles of
criminalization and victimization. For women emerging from the harsh realities of incarceration, trauma, and violence, a small gift of something beautiful goes a
long way to restoring feelings of dignity and self-worth.
I also donate pieces to silent auctions. Please feel free to get in touch if you have an event coming up. (email@example.com)
I live in Toronto with my husband and two sons, aged 8 and 10. Before living in Toronto, I worked in the entertainment industry in London, England; New York City; Washington, DC; and Tampa, Florida, where I grew up.
