My story
My name is Munira Fleyfel. I was raised in Cyprus, Iraq, and Lebanon, eventually attending university in the US. My parents are from Bahrain and Oman and emphasized respect for the cultures of countries that hosted us - and those beyond. I trained as an architect at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. I have practiced as an architect in the US but have continued to be fascinated by various fields of design. I founded Tree of Pearls as an outlet for my fascination with the history and symbolism of the materials I now work with as a jewelry designer.
