About

I love designing and making handmade jewelry for women professionals. I wish I had discovered the value of "dressing for success" earlier in my career. I've worked at start-ups and at a Fortune 100 company. Some offices have been very formal with business suits, and others have been very casual with jeans. I spent thousands of dollars on work clothes, but never paid much attention to the jewelry I was wearing. I wore jewelry that was either too simple to add any value to the outfit (like that boring strand of pearls I wore everytime my photo was taken professionally) or jewelry that was too cheap looking (usually bought for me as a well-meaning gift).

A few years ago I started to make my own necklace, bracelet and earring sets to coordinate with my suits and to "pull together" my separates. My co-workers and colleagues would complement me on my jewelry and began asking my advice on what…

I've worked at start-ups and at a Fortune 100 company. Some offices have been very formal with business suits, and others have been very casual with jeans.

A few years ago I started to make my own necklace, bracelet and earring sets to coordinate with my suits and to "pull together" my separates. My co-workers and colleagues would complement me on my jewelry and began asking my advice on what jewelry they should wear. Now I offer my handmade jewelry to other women professionals.

I know from personal experience that the right jewelry can affect how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you. I have struggled between looking too dressed up for the office or looking too casual. I found that I could still wear jeans and a cardigan to the office but dress it up with a coordinating necklace, bracelet and earrings set. And when a business suit was called for, matching jewelry made me look polished.

I truly hope that, with the extra bit of confidence in what you are wearing, you too will find success in your career! Enjoy shopping in my boutique and remember to Be Confident!
