Hi, I am Cheryl Yee, Zhen Pearl's founder and designer.
Zhen Pearl is my lifelong project, a showcase of my past and present, and path to the future.
I was a TV journalist for many years, but chose to leave my job while based in Singapore as China TV Southeast Asia Bureau Chief in 2012 because I had lost passion for my work. Since then, I had tried other jobs in PR and college teaching, still, I could not find myself.
Accidentally I picked up what I loved to do long time ago, DIY jewelry making, and found my zest again. I kept making one piece after another and different colors for each design, mixing & matching genuine pearls, Swarovski crystal elements, gemstones and exotic materials. The creative process was truly enjoyable and therapeutic, and people really loved the designs, often amazed by such detail-oriented craftsmanship. After all, I pride myself on being such a die-hard perfectionist.
Then I started thinking of marketing my collections online to bring a little joy and happiness into more people's life. It had been almost three years before I set up this website.
I constantly remind myself I am not selling my beloved pieces to make myself rich, and I never will, though it's not entirely a bad thing to have a fortune. Any income will be used to fund future projects including charities to bring a little joy and happiness into more people's life.
Finally, hope you enjoy Zhen Pearl collections as much as I enjoy making them and light the spark inside you. Genuinely does it... XOXO
偶然間，重拾起多年前的嗜好 ~ 手作珠寶，沒想到，熱情的感覺回來了！我可以從早到晚不停手作，一件接著一件、廢寢忘食地做，以真的珍珠混搭施華洛世奇水晶元素、半寶石和異類材質，毎款設計又手作各種配色。創作過程是享受、也是療癒。獨特的設計和精緻手工，令許多人驚豔，畢竟我就是這樣無可救藥的完美主義者。
