HI, I’M NATALIE!
I’m the founder of Aphrodite’s Oysters and the “Chief Goddess.” In 2016, I was a single mom struggling to pay my bills. I needed to take control of my life and discover my destiny.
IT STARTED WITH AN IDEA, WHICH TURNED INTO A DREAM, AND THEN INTO REALITY.
No, I didn’t invent pearls in oysters and I definitely didn’t invent jewelry. But, what I did do was something extraordinary. I chose to discover, I chose to try something new; I took a leap of faith. I stumbled across a video where pearls in oysters were being opened and I thought to myself, wow I can do this too. My two initial thoughts were, what was I going to name the company and what will make us stand out? My best friend Angie and fellow Goddess actually came up with the name Aphrodite. With more research, we came to find that Aphrodite the Goddess emerged from an oyster from under the sea…and BOOM… Aphrodite’s Oysters was born.
I MADE A VOW THAT THE PEARLS AND JEWELRY WE OFFER WOULD BE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.
To this day, we hold true to that promise. All of our jewelry is sterling silver to bring the best value to our customers. Every single pearl goes through a quality control process to ensure that there are no dimples, scrapes or scratches! Each jewelry setting includes a 1-year warranty to ensure the durability and longevity. Aphrodite’s Oysters strives for a culture of quality in everything we do: products, customer service, host program and the consultant opportunity.
I MADE THE LEAP AND HELD MY FIRST EVER APHRODITE’S OYSTERS PEARL PARTY.
The joy of opening oysters and discovering a unique pearl overwhelmed me. Who knew this could be so FUN? From the anticipation of the pearl color and the excitement of opening ‘twins’, to the jewelry setting selection process, to the relationships I built along the way. It all felt so right. And that was just the beginning.
THE PASSION I HOLD DEAR IS TO SHARE THIS JOURNEY WITH OTHERS.
I want you to discover your destiny, too. The beautiful pearls that are revealed from the oysters are a reflection of our own challenges. Regardless of your past and where you are today, with time and culturing there is always a future, and that future will reveal itself as something naturally magnificent.
OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER WOMEN TO EMBRACE THEIR INNER GODDESS.
We find this through discovery, ambition, persistence, the ability to inspire, service to community, grit and the fiery desire to achieve our goals and dreams.
True Goddesses are not born, they are cultured like pearls by the people and experiences around them and reveal themselves when the right time comes.
