Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from nature, geometry, architecture, historical themes, emotions and everyday objects.
When and how did your company come to life?
In December 2008, I found out that I was going to be laid off. In that same month, the company that I was working for had a craft show. So, I decided to sell some jewelry pieces that I made. The following year in April, I started my company.
What’s your ultimate dream for your company?
My ultimate dream for my company is for it to be very profitable and for people to identify my jewelry on the street!
What do you sell?
I sell handcrafted fashion and artisan jewelry!
Where can I find your product?
I sell my jewelry online at www.trendsetterjewelrydesigns.com. I have some of my jewelry collection in the Magnolia Salon in Rockville, MD. I encourage people to host home shows and do other types of shows throughout the DMV.
