Beaded jewelry made with her Mother's borrowed tools and supplies were the first pieces of her collection. Hand made and designed using freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and semi-precious beads, all designs were classic, simple and understated. An updated version of the "Tin Cup" floating necklace came next, using crystals in a variety of color combinations, hand knotted on silk cord. Then children's jewelry, knotted pearls and lots of gold pieces rounded out her collection.
Along the way, paper came into the mix. Kristin picked up several lines of beautiful but affordable paper, adding to her assortment of goods to sell. Several years later, about a hundred trunk shows, and countless appointments, Kristin Pearce Designs sells through this site and through Instagram. Her jewelry is sold in many stores up and down the East Coast.
