|Polished Pearl now also serves as great meeting space for your next party or event.|
In May we told you about Polished Pearl, a company that first began selling high-end beaded bags and accessories online, handmade by survivors of sex trafficking in India, in 2012. This spring the company opened a storefront at 118 N. Fort Thomas Ave., and now serves as a design and sampling center—a place to meet with clients and brides interested in custom pieces. Handmade items come from India and Moldova, and custom pieces are designed and sewn in-house. And now the storefront is open for rentals, perfect for a holiday party.
Polished Pearl has had much success and this month marks the launch of two exciting events.
Sunday, December 6, 2pm to 5pm, Polished Pearl and Freeset, a fair trade business that offers employment to women in Kolkata's red light district, will offer a Freedom Holiday Shop.
And Sunday, December 13, 1pm to 5pm, Polished Pearls invites the community to "Come Celebrate the Beauty of Jewish Moldovan Heritage." Featured photographer is Tine Hoffman, a Cincinnati photographer who recently traveled to Moldova and was "captured by the promise and the pain of the Jewish story there." The featured artist is Ghenadie Sontu, a Jewish Moldovan artist who "captures both the heart of Moldova and the rich heritage of the Jewish people in his art." Refreshments will be served.
Finally, Polished Pearl is now pleased to offer their space as a rental for a holiday party, meeting or other small event. "We lovingly restored and designed our showroom space in Fort Thomas to be a great venue for holding events," says Nicole Robyn, Polished Pearl's CEO. "Not only is it beautiful space, but as a freedom business, every rental helps to bring freedom from trafficking."
