In the long, long ago, in the before times, I was a corporate drone. I happily showed up for my beating every day and worked my butt off to make someone else wealthy.
I was miserable.
In 2010, I hit a wall...
No longer would I or could I be in bondage to my corporate masters! I was fat, sick and felt dead inside, so I got back to my basics and I started hunting gemstones, a move that would change my life forever. I said to myself, life would be different and it sure has been.
I quickly determined that I liked working with rocks more than working for boss people, so and I spent day after day, hiking for miles collecting treasures.
I began selling my finds online, which eventually morphed into opening my own rock and gem shop in 2011. You can read more about us here: www.rockyourworldgems.com
We started out consigning in inventory and selling my finds. Our store took off right away and one thing quickly became apparent: the demand for unique, high quality handmade stone jewelry with soul was high and LOUD. So I began to manufacture jewelry.
It started out as very plain and simple beaded earrings and necklaces and has since grown into it's own flavor of fabulous.
