About

THE PAINTED PEARL...(and what the heck is "SRQ")?

Boys? Not so much. Beads and sparkly things? THEY were my first love. Vivid childhood memories found me secretly raiding mom's jewelry box and painting her pearls to make my own jewelry. Painting pearls? Wait, what? 'THE PAINTED PEARL'... Seems like such a perfect name for my store!

The Painted Pearl is like that little gift shop down the road from your favorite beach, with gifts and tropical goodies to spark memories or anticipation about your tropical vacation or event. While we don't serve virtual margaritas, maybe our unique line of beach related products will help get you a much needed beach fix...right here, right now! So, fellow beach lovers, I'm glad you are here. The beaches and abundant sunshine serve as constant inspiration for me to create new and fun things for you....my beach loving customers!

I love the beach too, and it's a total blast just designing and making the things I sell. That artsy-fartsy component that I seem to have surfaced as soon as I exited the womb. My incessant need to create found me gluing macaroni to cardboard instead of sucking my thumb or watching TV. I think I tried every art and craft project known to mankind!

But seriously now, I put in my time--and no, it wasn't jail--although it felt like it sometimes. Yes, I worked for the government. I gained wonderful friendships, my fabulous husband, and an alleged pension. And then, the fun began, and the entrepreneurial 'me' emerged. Creative businesses? I've had a few! Graphic design, interior design, jewelry design, and decorative painting...and NOW? I am having the most fun of all! My online store is where I showcase all of the awesome beach stuff that I am pretty sure you will like!

PS: and...what the heck is SRQ?
The Sarasota airport code. Other shops already had "The Painted Pearl" (did they paint mom's pearls too?) It seemed to be a good idea to add it at the time.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy shopping, my beach loving friends!
