Hi! We’re Sophie and Amy.
We first met at college in 2002 where we studied Animal Management together. After college, we went to university together and became animal loving, lifelong friends. We have studied, lived and worked together. We both qualified as Veterinary nurses and have a passion for animal care and welfare. After Sophie had her son, she took a change in direction and became a qualified nail technician. Starting her own business named ‘Beauty Ritual’.
Fast forward to 2020 when, during lockdown, we both found ourselves out of work.
We decided to start ‘The Handmade Pear’ when a conversation on zoom, with our close friend, reignited our love for statement dangly earrings.
We absolutely LOVE creating, making and selling our unique earrings and sharing our crazy journey with you all.
We cannot thank you enough for your support and encouragement.
With special thanks to our family and friends.
We hope you enjoy our earrings as much as we enjoy creating them!
Love Sophie and Amy x
