Hidden Pearls

Ah yes, the CALLISTO Pearls — Aka The earrings that changed my life.

I actually designed these earrings back in 2017 but I didn’t show them to the world until 2020 - I just felt like it wasn’t the right time.

It’s been a big journey here at JL, we went from making dainty jewellery to statement bohemian earrings and necklaces until we finally found our niche. PEARLS.

I have always been drawn to pearls but a part of me was too scared to show the world my Pearl designs (Imposter Syndrome was Loud). So I hid them in a draw and for years and I didn’t look at them until I took a step back from my business to try and find my feet through the pandemic we shall not name.

In 2020, although I was broken, a part of me gained the strength to open the, what was known as the ‘Pearl Draw’ I saw the pearl earrings for the first time in 3 years and a loud voice said ‘It’s time’ so I put my big girl pants on and posted a photo of them on instagram. Where there was once silence on all social media platforms, a community was formed and I was completely overwhelmed by the response.

Little did I know Pearls soon became what we are known for now. Since the CALLISTO hoops were released, not only was JL featured in @vogueaustralia@tatlermagazine@elleuk@bazaaruk@oakmagazineau, it also lead me to quit my job to run JL full time. 

Our pearl jewellery has been worn by amazing people all over the world! - From collecting dust in a draw to the world wide stage, I never thought in a million years this would happen.

To this day I still can’t believe I hid the designs in my draw for all those years - In the end the fear was created by me.

We will be restocking our Callistos along with our storewide restock this week! - We can’t wait to re open our website!

The story behind our Callisto hoops began before they were even released, I just didn’t know it yet.

Unlike diamonds, rubies, emeralds and more, pearls require no cutting or polishing before use and are simply stunning the way they naturally form.
