Little Girl's Pearls

And that's me!!
If you haven't met me yet, I'm Julie...the owner + designer behind all of the sparkles here at Little Girl's Pearls. While I have dabbled in jewelry and gift design and creation since I was a kid ( you remember when I used to glue googlie eyes on cornflakes and make magnets for the craft fair???), my official jewelry business started in 1999.

Then when we had our first kiddo, I fell in love with meaningful little mementos and keepsakes that reminded me of the teenie tiny baby stage, then the toddler stage, and now the I'm a grown-up in college stage!!! many fun stages! I wanted to help mamas (and nanas and dads and uncles and aunts) celebrate the little loves in their lives. So, Little Girl's Pearls was born right here in our cozy California studio.

I have always said that I have the best "job" in the world & you all are like my family. I appreciate each and every one of you, and I am so very grateful that you are here, shopping with our family business. ♥ Thank you.
