THE FACE BEHIND THE VIRTUAL COUNTER
With a professional background and "day job" in event planning, I am always on the go, bringing creativity to life. Whether it is exhibition, theming, venue selection, or florals, on site execution of all of this came to a halt during the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving me extra time and a craving to CREATE! Initially starting off with a ceramic "punny" planters line for Mother's Day 2020, I slowly cut/adhered/ironed my way into bridal, bachelorette, baby, pet, and more. Recognized in Tidewater & Tulle magazine within my first few months, I was like "wait, I'm actually kind of good at this", and have worked hard over the last 3 years on growing my now loyal and frequented client base. In collaborating with other artists as well as local nonprofits, SOP also allows me to work with a ton of awesome people. Something to note is that I am always adding new ideas to the mix and embrace customization! Having an innovative online business allows me to work with you to perfect each unique product start to finish, which in turn, is way more personal than simply "adding to cart" or buying a stock item. Your pieces are unique to YOU and your loved ones. Let's create something together!
In the beginning months of 2023, over 30% of profits made at the shop were donated BACK to animal rescue organizations in the form of merchandise. Moving forward, this will be the norm. String of Pearls is making a ‘Pawsitive Impact’ promise, where a portion of ALL proceeds will benefit our furry friends in need. If you have any specific organizations that you would like to nominate to the cause (especially those that host raffles and/or auctions), please feel free to send them through for consideration at your time of purchase. Let’s make a difference together.
