Every woman has a love of something ... mine was never shoes and bags, but always jewelry. Having worked in corporate America for what seemed like a million years, I was able to afford pretty much whatever caught my eye. Then in 1997 I was approached by a friend who sold a line of jewelry, manufactured in Texas and sold via home parties. I was torn ... did I *realllly* want to do THAT?
So Tammy became my jewelry "mom". And to my surprise at the first big meeting (really big), I won the drawing for a "free" full fall line of jewelry, and a chance to participate in a mega conference in Ft. Worth. When my name was called, well, I just took it in my stride. But I thought Tammy might need emergency medical attention as she became so very excited - her excitement is very contagious!
But the finished pieces looked cool and colorful, and there was a story going on - in my head of all places. And in January 2008 I followed my inner voice - I opened my etsy shop, and cooljewelrydesign was launched. JET Team. You will find what you're looking for among all the wonderful JET shops. We are all different, and that's the beauty - there WILL be jewelry that resonates with your inner voice.
We'd love to know how your Etsy shop got it's name too!
