About

Releasing The Inner Hippie

I'm just a hippie chick who drives a VW Bug, eats organic & creates retro inspired clothing through the art of crochet.

Black Pearl Creations was started in 2001 after 9/11. I made my dad, a 25 year veteran, an American flag afghan but my mom took it for herself. I made him another. My mom sold it(!), and sent me the money. She told me to start doing this as a business. I wanted to bring comfort in my own way so I began to make the afghans and sold them to parents whose children were serving overseas. I run into some of them occasionally and they still have their afghan. I gained a pretty good following and began to stretch my skills to clothing and accessories.

Since then, my crocheting skills have increased and Black Pearl has evolved into a bohemian clothing and accessories line. For the past 14 years, I've run my business in the background all while working full time, raising 2 children on my own, through breast cancer, college and domestic violence.

During my 2x cancer battles, I learned how important it is for us to live life on our terms. Not to run out and hurt others or anything but if you want to be bolder in your style and be more expressive, then that should be an option. Unfortunately, society has us bamboozled: "Sure, be expressive, but not like that. " I love giving others the opportunity to be expressive via unique clothing and accessories. This is releasing your inner hippie.

I am currently in the process of opening a mobile shop. While selling online has a lower overhead, being offline gives me the opportunity to create unique outfits that allows clients to demonstrate their individuality, or, as we call it, releasing their Inner Hippie.
