Her work has been influenced by the delicacy and sensuality of Art Nouveau, and the fascinating shapes and variety of the earth’s inhabitants. Her images exemplify her love of nature and gemstones, and her interest in symbolism and simplicity.
From Erie, PA to Cape Cod to the Bay area, the Northwest to Alaska and now in Hawaii, Pat’s adventurous spirit has found a home for 25 years.
Pat has a BFA from Syracuse University. Her cast wax carvings of nature’s images reflect her surroundings... dolphins and whales tails in waves, turtles with gemstone backs, coffee beans molded from beans on her farm. Her recent work in gemstones, pearls and diamond beads are classic, timeless expressions of the materials, “tomorrow’s heirlooms”.
Pat’s work can be found in her Holualoa Gallery and in many other art galleries across the islands, in Alaska and on the mainland.
While on the Big Island, stop by Pat Pearlman Designs, located in the historic pink Kona Hotel in Holualoa, upslope from Kailua Kona, Hawai'i.
Her store is like walking into a jewelry box! She has something for everyone, from small sterling and gold pendants and earrings to a large selection of gemstone necklaces, bracelets and rings, from freshwater pearls of many colors to Tahitian and golden south sea necklaces, bracelets and rings. And if you don’t see just what you want, Pat will work with you and redesign a piece for you.
