Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in jewelry but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Sophie Deltour, Designer of Perla Mundi, located in Peymeinade, AM, France.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I sell Tahitian pearl jewelry online. I create jewels after having selected the most beautiful Tahitian or Australian pearls from the market of the pearl. The leather I use, one of the most beautiful in the world, is rolled and worked by hand; I drill all the pearls I work with. The search for originality and the best quality is my priority.
Tell us about yourself
After having been a journalist, webmaster, and decorator, as fate would have it, and thanks to my brother, I turned to the Tahitian pearls 11 years ago. This latter business of jewelry design is mixing everything I love: reflection on design, production, and communication. I love it, and I hope it's palpable in my creations.

Be able to live off my full-time job!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Manage all workstations at the same time, manage peak sales periods
