Tell us about yourself, where you’re from and what you enjoy.
I am originally from Michigan but have been living in Milwaukee for the last two years. I enjoy getting outside with my boyfriend and our two dogs exploring the trails and all Milwaukee has to offer!
Why did you start your business? What makes you passionate about it?
I started my business after I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison where I majored in metal-smithing. I have always been passionate about crafting and sharing my creativity with others.
What do you want people to know about your business?
I want people to know that every piece of jewelry is made by my own two hands – in my home studio in downtown Milwaukee. I put a lot of time and care into each piece so it can last a lifetime for everyone who purchases.
Please explain why your business is important to the community.
My business is important to the community because I want to give people access to high quality jewelry that is also affordable. I also put a percentage of my sales back into the community supporting local non-profits. I have donated $900 to date.
