After working as a Goldsmith for a few years, family life shifted her focus and initiated a hiatus from the jewellery industry. Motherhood unraveled a passion for natural health and wellness as she cared for her Three children, making her own natural baby products and healing remedies.
It was in 2016 when Carrie discovered the use of lava rock as a material that could absorb and diffuse essential oils. Jewellery-makers were combining lava stone beads with gemstones to create stylish, functional bracelets. What a novel idea!! As beautiful as they were, Carrie noticed that they were all strung on elastic cord that stretched out and became brittle after some use. Additionally, essential oils were increasing the rate of deterioration because of their potency. It would be her mission to fix this problem so that women no longer had to chase their fallen beads on the floor!
As her family dynamic changed, single-parenthood led her through her own path of healing, which fueled her desire to help those on their own journeys as well. She was driven to create jewellery that was well-made, functional, beautiful, and healing to the mind, body, and soul. With that, her inspiration and motivation—her “Three Peas” (Grace, Cohen, and Holly), became the company’s namesake: Three Peas Design Co.
