Well let me start by saying 2020 is off to a great start! OMG!!!

When I first starting designing jewelry almost 19 years, I always envisioned my brand, especially my earrings being in the top fashion and travel magazines. Fashion, Travel, and Art have always been the three most ongoing influences of my creative process. Based on my background as a watercolor artist, love for all things fashion, my career including vacation jaunts to exotic places, magazine ad layouts just seemed like the next logical step.
Well, but not so fast! Unlike my travel career, being a small business "designer" next levels of growth and opportunity didn't always come or have a cohesive, easy pathway to my dreams. If anything it's been like a obstacle course on a track to be very frank. BUT I have always believed in one major mindset. Everything happens when it's supposed to. So don't compete, don't compare, stay true to your vision and your faith, and MOST importantly NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF AND YOUR DREAMS because it will happen!
Feeling Fabulous & Thankful
