My story begins in 1987 on a trip to Hawaii where I first saw Oysters containing colorful Pearls being opened before my eyes. I brought the business idea back to Massachusetts and opened a small seaside store on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Looking for the flexibility to raise a family while running a business, I started Vantel Pearls Parties. Our success is a dream come true.
“The birth of a Pearl is a wondrous event. A particle of sand, piece of a shell, or foreign object drifts into the Oyster’s body and the oyster begins to secrete layers of nacre (Mother-of-Pearl) around the irritant. Over time, the layers transform into a glowing one-of-a-kind Pearl.
Pearls have taught me about gratitude and nature’s wisdom. How many of us are able to take a challenge, as Oysters do, and find the gift in it? It isn’t always easy to find the positive in the hardships we endure, but in time beauty is often revealed.
When we assimilate what we have learned from the difficulties we have overcome, we can then celebrate them as blessings and continue to grow.
Every woman deserves to feel beautiful. Pearls can help us feel beautiful on the outside, while we practice embracing the challenges on the inside.”
