Last year I started a project that has truly become the number one passion in my life – besides my babies of course! I launched a jewelry brand: Seren + Skye.
While on maternity leave, I needed a creative outlet; something to occupy the minimal time I had between sleeping, pumping and feeding. I had always had an interest in making jewelry (I even started a jewelry line in high school with a friend of mine, but it only produced good memories) and I thought I would take some of my ideas and see what I could do.
The first few pieces I made were no so great, ha! But they got the creative juices flowing and as I made more and more I got better and better at what I was doing. In the summer I launched my Instagram page and my website. I quickly gained 2000+ followers and numerous sales on my website. In the fall I also started launching pop up shops at local artisan and mama’s markets. This has so far been the best way for me to get my name out there and make a sale.
I’ve created with many different mediums, including brass, sterling silver, cellulose acetate, gold plated, gold filled, gemstones. They’re all great. But the future of my business will definitely be gold filled, sterling silver, gemstones and natural rocks. My future vision for the brand is to create an affordable but classy line of jewelry featuring hypoallergenic materials. I want to make sure that all the ambitious mama’s of this world (like me!) have the best pieces they can get.
I am so excited for what this next year has to come. Jewelry design and small business management has taken over my world and my thoughts, in the best possible way. I hope you will pop by the online shop or a pop up near you to see what we have to have offer.
