Hey, I’m Pearl-Ann Bartlett…
I’ve been intrigued by the idea of a pearl for years. Little did I know that my name would be more than a name but a movement.
Pearls are formed by the movement of an irritant into the oyster, causing coats of nacre to cover the irritant as a protective mechanism. When this occurs, over time, the irritant is transformed into a glistening gem. I, therefore, believe that we carry pearls on the inside of us. Raw, uncoordinated irritants that when transformed become great, beautiful, one-of-a-kind treasures.
And this is when the fun really begins!
