About us

Hi, everyone! My name is Michael, founder of Snow Country Jewelry, and I'm glad you and I met at Internet. I grew up in the hometown of pearls, Shanxiahu , Zhuji, China. I started doing wholesale and retail pearls in 2004, and over the years, there have been many different styles of pearls, but very few innovations in the structure of the pearls themselves, except for Chi Huynh, who founded The Galatea Pearl. The world’s first cultured pearl with a colored stone nucleus, the Galatea Pearl is a patented cultured pearl, carved by hand to let the color show through.

In 2020 I noticed the skull carving pearls by Japanese artist Shinji Nakaba, who took the already innovative carving of pearls to a whole new level, creating a series of skull pieces that made pearls desirable to men as well. Out of curiosity, I tried to imitate his technique and experimented again and again, I carved a few skulls that looked like helmets or a bit like Iron Man, which I thought was pretty good at the time, but was actually ridiculous. It wasn't until March 2022 that I got up the courage to start carving again, this time with the belief that I would win, because I wanted to transform, I had to make something different and outstanding jewelry pieces so that I could stand out in a homogenized product.

People in the industry know that pearls are wrapped by layers of nacre growing like the annual rings of a tree, so when carving pearls there are often cases of broken pearls, especially when carving out the teeth. Nietzsche said that There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how you use them.After countless attempts and consulting some artisans, My wife Michelle and I are now finally making work that is as good as the Japanese artist Shinji Nakaba.

I am very happy to create that unique jewelry for you, and we hope you design to participate and share the fun of creation together. I will try my best to bring more interesting designs. Finally, I hope you have a happy shopping experience at Snow Country Jewelry.
