Founder and Designer Aubrey Shao is a trained architect based in Hangzhou, China. At university, she started to design unique structure-inspired jewelry and founded her brand in 2015. Starting her line with earrings, she named the brand Whisper, after the reflection of having to be “closer to yourself” when whispering.
Aubrey has always been interested in jewelry, especially pearls but found that they are sometimes too heavy and inaccessible so she did her research to create a lightweight cotton pearl that still has the same glossy consistency of a traditional pearl. These cotton pearls come in both trend and timeless styles but are light enough to avoid weighing down ears. The original pearls are sourced from Japan and hand-assembled in Hangzhou, China.
