Our Featured Guest today is the founder and designer of AMANDA PEARL, a New York City-based luxury accessories company that offers sustainable jewelry and handmade-in-Italy evening bags.
AMANDA PEARL produces in small quantities using recycled metals, ethical stones, and cultured pearls - a natural resource whose cultivation helps maintain and improve water ecology.
She was born and raised in Seattle; her childhood was full of culture and the arts and the freedom to explore the wild outdoors. Twelve years studying and performing with Pacific Northwest Ballet instilled an unerring discipline and sharp attention to detail, tempered by her ceaseless curiosity about the natural world.
Constantly pushing boundaries, she left for NYC to receive a degree in Art History and Visual Arts from Barnard College. After a tenure at Marc Jacobs in the technical design and production departments, she brought her experience to Erin Fetherston’s womenswear label. She was Collection Director before decamping to launch AMANDA PEARL.
She is settled in NYC with her husband and boys. Still, She considers the Pacific Northwest ‘home’ – drawing upon its stunning natural beauty and innovative spirit as inspiration for her work.
She won the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for her handbag designs and was most recently a finalist in the fine jewelry category.
Her award-winning designs have been seen on women such as Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, Gal Gadot, Jane Fonda, Karlie Kloss, and publications Vogue, Bazaar, InStyle, and WWD.
