CEO & Founder

Vantel Pearls

Joan Hartel’s story begins in 1987 on a trip to Hawaii where she first saw Oysters containing colorful Pearls being opened before her eyes. She brought the business idea back to Massachusetts and opened a small seaside store on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Looking for the flexibility to raise a family while running a business, Joan started Vantel Pearls Parties. Their success is a dream come true.
