What a fun, flattering style! I get compliments each time I wear them! Ordering was a breeze and they came so quickly - I'll be getting more!


Beads + Tassels + Color + Fun = Libby & Smee

A few years ago, I made a pair of lightweight, kelly green tassel earrings and every time I wore them I was showered with compliments. So after 20 years as a fashion editor in the magazine business (Elle, Ladies' Home Journal, In Touch), I decided to make a few pairs to see if I could sell them. I wore them all the time and carried a little pouch of them around in my bag to sell to friends and admirers.

A friend suggested I check out a local boutique to see if they might want to carry my earrings so on a whim I walked in. I wasn't even in the door when the shop owner looked up and said "I love your earrings"!

I got an order for 18 pairs of handmade tassel earrings so I mocked up a logo on Picmonkey and ordered a rubber stamp to handstamp the packaging. And just like that, Libby & Smee was born! The brand is named after nicknames that I gave my daughters when they were babies; Lily's initials are LBE so I called her Libby and Sophia's initials are SME so I called her Smee!

My Etsy shop followed shortly after my first wholesale order and slowly the line grew to include hoops and threader earrings -- all with hand-tied tassels. When a potential wholesale client asked if I sold necklaces, I said "Sure!" and quickly got to work learning how to make hand-beaded jewelry. Most of my supplies come from Etsy sellers but I love going into New York City to source beads and get inspired for new designs.

I make everything by hand in my home in Westfield, New Jersey and I love having a creative job with flexible hours that keeps me close to home and my family!
