I am constantly inspired by the women around me. My social media feeds, my family life, and my professional life are filled to the brim with women who are accomplishing their goals while inspiring and supporting each other.
These fierce females push me to live fearlessly and to not shy away from any obstacles I encounter. I feel incredibly humbled and lucky that they choose to wear my jewelry, whether they pair it with work boots, or wear it in the boardroom, they create positive change in the world and do it in style.
This is why throughout the year I have been highlighting ladies who each have a unique passion which has led them to be leaders in their fields along with the jewelry pieces that compliment their individual style.

Jessica Hardy, a past olympic swimmer, has won a total of twenty-eight medals in major international competition, fourteen gold, nine silver, and five bronze spanning the Olympics, World and the Pan Pacific Championships. However, what I admire most about her is the work she does to educate and inspire future generations of female athletes. She teaches that “you can beat the boys”. “ I am lucky play a sport where both genders train together, and I get great satisfaction out of beating my male teammates. Expecting greatness from yourself doesn’t have to be limited by our gender, never be afraid to push yourself beyond what is expected of you."
