As a daughter, sister, and now mother to a young girl, I have always loved celebrating those important, foundational, rite-of-passage moments with people I love. Throughout our lives, there are probably only a handful of moments that truly imprint a memory. I believe that we should make the most of those moments because those moments come to define our lives! One such moment, in my opinion, has until now, been totally under-celebrated, and has been truly a missed opportunity to connect…
That’s why, in 2017, I launched Pair!
As many girls did, I distinctly remember begging and waiting to get my ears pierced. There was so much excitement and anticipation surrounding that unique event in my life. However, when the moment arrived, I ended up at a local mall, and the ear-piercing experience itself was not the memorable celebration it could have been!
As I look forward, for my own daughter and for my friend's daughters, I see the opportunity for a far superior experience during this unique metamorphosis event, ear piercing. Furthermore, I also appreciate that the subsequent year is important for healing, and is a great (as yet untapped) opportunity to continue to celebrate and build better relationships together.
Every month, as part of the Earring of the Month Club, in addition to a beautiful pair of earrings, Pair provides an easy invitation for girls and their Moms, Dads, Friends etc., to talk about bold and inspirational topics. The questions and conversation topics are designed and approved by medical experts.
I’m passionate about my company and its mission and would love to hear any feedback and suggestions you may have. Please email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much for your support!
I've been a jewelry designer for 15 years with my own line (www.pagesargisson.com) selling to boutiques around the country. Over the years, my clientele has asked me where to get their daughters' ears pierced AND where to buy quality, hypoallergenic earrings that didn't break the bank. When I met Louisa and heard her idea, I was in!
