Twang & Pearl was found out of a love of travel and a sincere appreciation for beauty – the beauty in carefully crafted things yes, but also in the moments experienced while searching for them. We are as inspired by the people & the stories behind the goods we curate, as we are by the goods themselves. We like to affectionately refer to this gorgeous tribe of humans, along with all of our customers, as our Twangy Nation.
We invite you to become a member and follow #TwangyNation on our blog and social media to meet some of the fine folks you are supporting with your purchases. Whether you visit us online or in our Salt Spring Island flagship store, we hope you find the journey inspiring and that your experience shopping with us imbues a little beauty into your life.
Our Twangy Team
We may be a small team, but we are fierce (about our work and enjoying ourselves while doing it). We also actually covet, wear, use and love the products we carry. Our biggest delight, however, is in sharing that love with our ever-growing community of customers. Follow our team on our adventures behind the scenes on our blog and social media with #TwangGang
Jana – 'Our Glue'
If you ask our owner the meaning behind the name Twang & Pearl, she’ll tell you it’s a little bit country, a little bit cocktail party, like her personality. Perhaps it’s this style duality that gives her her knack for curating (and the continuous stream of ideas that keeps our team busy). We’re not sure how she does it, but we’re just glad she does. Whether working or playing near to home or afar, Jana is always on the lookout for beauty to share with all you lovelies. While she’s hard pressed to pick favourites, she is currently raving about Yoga Jeans, Corkcicle, Ilse Jacobsen Sparkle Flips & Kutula Kiss.
Teile – 'Queen T'
Since Teile joined our team as Store Manager & Assistant Buyer in 2017, our lives have not only become exceptionally well run but also way more enjoyable! Her unflappable nature, amazing attitude and her uncanny ability to make fun happen, keeps our team productive & happy - the true sign of a good queen. When she’s not improving our work lives or starring in one of our photo shoots, Teile’s amusing her friends & family with stories of her life with Jono, Ara, Poppy & their band of animals. Her current favourites in store: Gentle Fawn, Hobo the Original & Skinny Bangles.
Tara – 'Copilot Extraordinaire'
When Tara joined our team as a Sales Associate in 2015 our world instantly became several shades brighter. Her smile will truly light up a room. She is now our Digital Media Coordinator & Assistant Store Manager and has seen us through many of our ups (and downs) with a grace and agility few possess. When she’s not coordinating our digital world or co-piloting a project in the store, she’s likely off on a worldly adventure with Nick or tending to their bees, chickens & blueberries at home. Her current favourites in store: Twang & Pearl’s own line of curated goods, Z Supply and Amuse Society.
Kristi – 'Our Muse'
From the very first day Kristi joined our team in 2017 as a Sales Associate, our world improved in ways we didn’t even realize needed improvement. She is a creative and organizational genius and a whiz at making the store look pretty. When Kristi isn’t at the store beaming positivity and enthusiasm, she can be found designing and creating Qube (her own line of clothing we love and carry) or spending quality time with her guy Jord and their sweet dogs Daisy & Honey. Kristi’s current favourites in store: Yoga Jeans, Gentle Fawn & Amuse Society.
