About the Community
Mother’s milk and other DNA- biological origin undergo a unique process of preservation done in Marikina.
Simultaneously, jewelry settings are made by local artisans in Bulacan.
Following that, the material is then fixed with jeweller’s enamel to make into a DNA stone. It is this processing technology that has the greatest impact on the durability of our pearls and their milky white qualities.
The entire process of Tender Foot Jewels creation is constantly monitored and improved upon by an experienced chemist.
