about perla sol
As a child, I regularly spent hours at the local public library consuming books that let me ride along on the most fantastical adventures. These stories brought me the feeling of having a world that was all my own while I was growing up in a busy multi-generational Vietnamese American household in the Midwest.
In 2019, I married my partner and best pal. Because I was a new nurse and Jeff was completing graduate school, I did many DIY projects in order to stay within our budget for the wedding. I created my ceremony veil with champagne shimmer tulle and a crystal pearl applique. I then created a detachable red chiffon and tulle flower cape for my tea ceremony áo dài. I learned so much from creating those two pieces. I kept thinking about concepts for bridal and event accessories, so I continued to dream up designs for capes, veils, and headbands in the margins of my notebooks.
At the beginning of 2021, my mom told me "sometimes you have to create your own sunshine in life." So here I am. My name is Andrea. I created Perla Sol LLC, wanting to bring some sunshine and magic into the world. I hope that launching an inclusive, accessible, and unique special events hair accessory collection is just the first chapter in this story.
My wish is that you see yourself as the main character here.
P.S. - Welcome to the fairytale.
