Have you ever felt passionate about two seemingly different things? For instance, maybe you are an engineer at heart but you find yourself scribbling poetry in the margins of your notebooks. While you may feel conflicted or divided by your competing passions, who’s to say you can’t pursue both of them? Attorney and business owner Virginia Claire Tharrington did just that. A second-generation lawyer, Virginia Claire first dreamed up her business, Waccamaw Pearls, while visiting a pearl market in Shanghai, China, and the rest is history. The business started with a classic double-strand bracelet with the signature Waccamaw Pearls sterling silver toggle, but has since expanded to include gorgeous signature pieces for all occasions.
