Designed by Diane Yamaguchi - aka Mrs. Pearls
Originally from Minnesota, but raised in Palm Springs, CA. She has a real eclectic Fashion Sense with lots of bohemian and classic styles mixed together.
She has had the good fortune of living in so many great places and as a result has picked up indigenous style nuggets and incorporated them into her designs. This all started when she lived in Shanghai and her design, retail and sales background all galvanized together. She fell in love with Asian Markets and the beautiful woman that made jewelry - so many different stones, pearls and crystals - her creative brain went nuts!
So she created a few things she liked and brought them home to her girlfriends and they all loved them - she couldn't keep anything for herself! That's when she thought, "Maybe I could turn this into a business. So she did! IT's these merchant relationships that she holds very dear and is grateful to have such an incredible connection to Sand People.
