A Vatne Valentines surprise!

Vatne Designs is one of our favorite things to come out of Bellingham, Washington... next to Death Cab for Cutie {and the Postal Service} of course. It's nearly impossible to peruse their website without racking up a wish list. From now until Monday, they're offering Pearls for Paper readers 25% off your entire purchase! Hooray! {use the code PAPER25 at check out} AND enter to win a special Valentines necklace from Vatne!! {see below}

We had a chance to get to know a little more about the lovely lady behind all these pretty pieces. Here's what Neallie had to say:

How did you get into the business? I have been creating jewelry since I was young, it was an absolute favorite hobby of mine. I was lucky enough to find a career within the couture bridal industry straight out of college where I used my creativity daily, and worked with brides and wedding professionals throughout the country.  After staying home with my kiddos for a few years I decided to start my own business and my immediate instinct was to create jewelry and accessories for brides.  I have since expanded my line to include colors and styles which can be worn day to night, for any and all occasions.

What is your favorite part? My favorite part of creating is just that. I love to create beautiful sparkly jewelry that makes you smile the second you see it.

Do you have a signature piece? I would say that my signature pieces are my E101 earrings, they are the absolute favorite among my customers, friends and family. They add just the right amount of sparkle and bling to your everyday jeans and t-shirt, or they are perfect with a wedding gown. I love them.
