Back in 1999, encouraged by a reputable pearl farm owner, Alice Yan Crumbleholme quit her job as a professor at a University, and dove into the ocean of entrepreneurship to pursue her dream in the jewelry-land. To arm herself with as much knowledge as possible, Alice visited and lived on the pearl farms and pearl factories, harvested pearls herself, watched and learned the processes of this mysterious gem from sorting, drilling, stringing to setting. She fell in love with this beauty of the ocean. Still unsatisfied, she then enrolled in the world-famous gem school - Gemological Institute of America, for she wanted to know EVERYTHING about this fascinating jewel. In 2006, she completed all the tests and was awarded the graduate pearl diploma by GIA.

Apparently, that was still not enough for her. Alice took and finished classes in metal-smithing in the local Multnomah Art Center in Portland, Oregon in 2005 to expand her knowledge and perfect her skills. She then went on and learned wire-wrapping, silver clay jewelry making from masters in the jewelry-land in 2006.
