Hello Jo'ellie friends! Thank you for stopping by here to find out more about the crazy blonde lady behind all this jewelry!

A lot of people ask me why I named my shop Jo'ellie Boutique after finding out my name is, Kathleen. Well, my shop is actually named after my two beloved Grandmas names put together.... Jo.... and... Ellie. :) (They are pictured on my shop banner... Jo Alice on the right and Eloise... my dad called her Ellie ... on the left.) I love these ladies so much and all that they have always stood for and represent.

I wanted to nurture my true spirit and my old soul. I wanted to name my shop after these important ladies in my life as a tribute to them and to all that's real and old- fashioned. I wish we could all take the time to be the creative good ladies that we used to be in older times.... using our hands, our natural feminine energy, and our…

Hello Jo'ellie friends! Thank you for stopping by here to find out more about the crazy blonde lady behind all this jewelry!

A lot of people ask me why I named my shop Jo'ellie Boutique after finding out my name is, Kathleen. Well, my shop is actually named after my two beloved Grandmas names put together.... Jo.... and... Ellie. :) (They are pictured on my shop banner... Jo Alice on the right and Eloise... my dad called her Ellie ... on the left.) I love these ladies so much and all that they have always stood for and represent.

I wanted to nurture my true spirit and my old soul. I wanted to name my shop after these important ladies in my life as a tribute to them and to all that's real and old- fashioned. I wish we could all take the time to be the creative good ladies that we used to be in older times.... using our hands, our natural feminine energy, and our imaginations... to make beautiful artistic things to admire and enjoy.

I feel happiest and most alive when I honor my heart.... being mommy to my growing three boys, enjoying slow days in the mountains with my sweet husband (Scott of 18 years), or just daydreaming out somewhere by myself. I make each individual piece one at a time with my own hands. I take great care and receive much inspiration.

I am most inspired by nature and the moods of the colors around me. Weather it's the mountain moss growing on the rocks and the bright blue sky blowing my hair all around .... or the sand gritting through my toes listening to the crashing waves of the ocean .... or even looking out as far as my eyes can see along a sun-stained sky of reds and purples enjoying the warmth of the beautiful desert.

My hope is you will see and feel my inspiration in each individual design I make. That your new jewelry will make you feel beautiful and special.

I was so honored to be invited backstage at the George Jones Tribute to present my jewelry collection to all the country music entertainers that were performing! It was an experience I will truly -never- forget. I also got invited by my new friend from the George Jones Tribute...CMT producer, Laura Douglas, ...to showcase Jo'ellie jewelry in the exclusive CMT celebrity gift bags at the CMT Music Awards!

Since then Jo'ellie jewelry has been worn on The Grand Ol' Opry stage by Opry veteran Jeanie Sealy, by Lorrie Morgan on The Marty Stuart Show, and a Jo'ellie necklace wasworn by the beautiful and talented Lisa Matassa on her latest CD cover! I've also recently been branching out excitedly into the wholesale world!

So what now??.... I just try to stay focused on who I am and my original dream, and pray for God to keep my hands busy and help me do the rest..... whatever that may be. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll feel inspired, and follow your wild wind that keeps calling your name.... and remember if no one else will support you on your crazy dream adventures..... know from the bottom of my heart ... I will.
