Hello! My name is Melinda. I am the owner and sole designer of Pineberry Boutique. I named my online shop after my nickname, Pineberry, that was given to me by my father about 15 years ago. I am happily married to my best friend, and love to spend time with my husband watching sports. You can usually find me watching baseball, hockey, or football while making my jewelry. All my jewelry is handmade by me in a smoke-free, but pet-friendly home. While I love sports, I also love everything girly, especially pearls, things that sparkle, and the color pink. Why I make jewelry: My best friend was getting married several years ago, and I needed a cute bracelet to go with my maid of honor dress. I was shocked how expensive such jewelry was in stores and was not impressed with the poor quality of mass produced jewelry. It was then that I decided to start making my own jewelry. I love creating beautiful jewelry for brides and her bridesmaids that are affordable because weddings are expensive.
