The pearl was a metaphor for my life.
The pearl was the way to share my story.
For my life as for the oyster, beauty had been born from the struggle.
So with my construction / engineering background and artistic nature, I set out to redesign the world’s oldest and most feminine gem as a modern, luxurious symbol of faith. I envisioned the unparalleled beauty of natural pearls (the only gem born of a living creature) worn casually, and daily. I became obsessed with learning and
purveying beautiful, affordable pearls.
I opened my shop MILK VELVET PEARLS on Mother’s Day 2014, and since then the response has been overwhelming. Today, MVP has shipped to customers in 28 states, Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom. And while my goal has always been to reach as many people as possible, my most rewarding experiences have come through custom requests. Working individually with clients on custom designs has led to the creation of my best pieces. It has also taught me that the power of prayer, and the beauty we find through pain are stories that many of us share.
God is with us, and He has great plans for our lives. Let us be a shining light of hope to others.
Let’s all #wearpearlswithpurpose
