MEET EMILY + BRAD
Emily and Brad Weckesser are the husband-and-wife design duo behind The Oyster’s Pearl. Located in Northeastern Ohio, they collaborate together daily on custom stationery, unique apparel, and modern home decor from their sunshine-filled, exposed-brick studio space. Emily’s background in graphic design, typography, and fine arts are complemented by Brad’s skills in woodworking, ceramics, photography, and screen printing. Together, they have created a full-service design company where their passions collide to produce a wide range of modern event and lifestyle products. Emily and Brad believe that their days are best spent together, creating a business and life that they look forward to growing each day.
Emily and Brad first met 3,000 miles from their midwestern roots in a small town off the coast of Costa Rica, where both were volunteering with at-risk youth. They quickly fell in love and came back to the States to plan the wedding of their dreams and begin their life together. Shortly after designing and making all of the stationery and decor for their own outdoor wedding, The Oyster’s Pearl was born. What began as a small-scale adventure quickly became a full-time job, and when the orders became more than Emily could handle alone, Brad came alongside full-time and the two haven’t looked back. Initially focused on Emily’s passion for paper goods and stationery, The Oyster’s Pearl quickly grew to incorporate Brad’s handiwork as well and expanded to include a beautiful line of modern home decor and accessories, screen printed apparel, and more.
