The pineapple is traditionally known as the symbol of hospitality, friendship, generosity, social warmth and graciousness internationally. In the Americas, the Native Americans would place a pineapple outside their hut if they were receiving visitors. The sound of the Chinese word for pineapple is so very close to the sound of “good luck coming your way,” that it has become popular tradition and feng shui symbol. And throughout Europe, it was a symbol of luxury, nobility and wealth. But foremost, this unique and delicious fruit is added to celebratory menus throughout the globe to commemorate special events of everlasting friendship and love.

One of my absolute favorite gems, the Pearl, is believed to attract wealth, luck and protection. Known for their calming effect, pearls can balance one's karma and strengthen relationships. The Pearl symbolizes the purity, generosity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer.
In our digital world, it's important to reminisce life's special moments, with a beautiful keepsake.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, I moved to the Sandwich Isles of Hawai'i after high school. I immediately immersed myself in the Hawai'i lifestyle and embraced the Hawaiian culture. I knew instantly that I found my home, the island of Maui.
My passion for Hawai'i grew as I built my professional career in the travel and hospitality industry, which included turning wedding dreams to reality for over 500+ clients.
My passion for art started in High School where I embraced every art medium. I was always drawn to tropical flora and fauna with their vibrant hues, various textures and exotic scents. I always knew I would be working with tropical beauty throughout my life in various forms.
Surrounded by natural beauty, I was instantly and artfully inspired. From the mountains to the sea, the island of Maui is one of the most beautiful places on earth and unforgettable memories are created here every day. In 2019, I created Pineapple Pearl.
Through Pineapple Pearl, I am delighted to bring you a selection of artfully designed Marriage Certificates to commemorate the commencement of your next life chapter as one. For yourself or as a gift, each certificate is printed on luxe linen paper with elegantly infused foil art, presented in a portfolio with traditional wax seal and personalized coordinating gift card. Truly a timeless piece.
Peruse my galleria and find what speaks to your heart. From my Signature Pineapple series, to the Flora selection featuring delicate, traditional and tropical designs. For Botanical lovers, flowing palms, and from the healing ocean, the Pacifica collection (coming soon).
No matter which design you select, know that it will bring joyous memories of your special union.
Artfully committed to beautiful memories.
