Making jewelry started out as a way for me to give my wedding guests unique, handmade wedding favors which would serve as a reminder of the happy occassion.

Insipired by the creative process and the love for one of a kind treasures, I started Girl with the Pearl - a place to find beautiful jewelry with the handmade touch. While my first love has always been pearls, I also love working with fine gemstones and crocheting with wire to create jewelry that is uniquely handmade. Being a self taught jewelry artist, I'm constantly exploring new designs and techniques, reminding myself to chase new ideas and above all, enjoy the creative process. 

All my pieces are designed and made by me in my Northern California studio, with fine quality materials and an attention to detail.
