Pearl grew up in Ontario, Canada, surrounded by the Great Lakes. She enjoyed color and all kinds of painting from an early age, and spent her childhood experimenting with watercolor, acrylics and photography.
Beginning in 2008, she began to explore a new medium - metalwork - utilizing both precious and non-precious metals. She enjoys moving freely between both jewelry and larger scale art. Her playful and geometric forms are made of mixed metal combinations in her studio in Zion Canyon, Utah. She uses sterling silver, brass and re-purposed copper sourced from a local studio in Utah.
Pearls leaves her jewelry work free from coatings and chemicals. As copper and silver both naturally develop a patina with exposure to oxygen, these should be kept in an airtight container to maintain shine. Sterling silver is marked but brass and copper pieces are not. Now a significant part of her creative expression, Pearl creates these pieces to share experiences which go beyond just words.
Her work has been featured at the Zion Human History Museum, St. George Art Museum and the Zion Natural History Association.
