The Creation of the StarLight Company

Our initial business, StarLight Fine Art Glasses, LLC., grew out of Leiana Gary’s hobby of making decorative glasses for herself and her friends. Leiana, a retired Speech-Language Pathologist, used various materials to embellish her “fancy glasses” that she and her friends would use on their ‘girl’s night out’ excursions to ‘stepping’ parties. Friends began requesting that she design their glasses and the idea for Starlight Glassware sprouted in 2007. Leiana began adapting brooches with permanent magnets using a process that permanently fused a magnet onto the front of the glass that the brooch could adhere to for just a little more ‘bling’.

Customers who purchased the glasses began asking for additional brooches that they could wear on their clothes that matched the one on their custom drinking glass pieces. We began magnetizing brooches for wearing only on clothing and customers were very pleased that they no longer had to “stick pins through their clothes.” Five years ago, Ladies of Attraction, a division of StarLight Fine Art Glasses, LLC. was created.
Our brooch collections are named StarlIghts, our small to medium-sized magnetic brooches and Klassic Klips are our large to extra-large magnetic brooch line. Each brooch contains a magnet on the back and comes with an additional ‘padded’ magnet for easy application and removal.

As sales of our magnetic brooches increased, Leiana began incorporating her other hobby of collecting dollhouse miniature items and began applying magnets to them to form unique refrigerator magnets we now call Fridge Klips. Dollhouse miniaturists are known for making tiny items looks as realistic as the actual items do in real life. Our refrigerator magnets take their designs from many real-life objects, animals, foods, plants, furniture, etc., just about anything that we can put a magnet on. And speaking of magnets, we use rare-earth magnets, some of the strongest in the industry, so that nothing falls off or slides down.

Leiana’s two sisters joined her in the business in 2009 to help out and each contribute to this growing business in innumerable, immeasurable ways. Our name ‘Ladies of Attraction’ and our motto of ‘Stick with us!’ were created by older and younger sister, Donna I. Williams and Carla Smith, respectively. Our younger sister created our logo represented by the magnetic field rendition shown above on our stationery. We are also now known as the “Magnet Queens”, thanks to the moniker Mr. Rushion McDonald, former Executive Producer of the Steve Harvey Show gave us upon meeting us at America’s Baking and Sweets trade show!

We continue to produce custom-designed drinking glasses embellished with Swarovski crystal elements that are displayed on our ETSY website at etsy.com/shop/StarLightGlasses, our decorative Klassic Klips magnetic brooches are displayed on ETSY at etsy.com/shop/The StarLightCompany and our refrigerator and wearable magnetic product lines are listed on our own personal site www.ladiesofattraction.com.
