With a personal collection of jewelry dating back to the 1910s, I’ve been matching stories to styles from my mother and grandmother since I was 3 years old. When these influential women in my life passed, I inherited their collections which inspire me everyday. Jewelry is in my essence.
An entrepreneurial spirit was ingrained in me at a very young age. I designed beaded bracelets as a little girl where I’d showcase them at lemonade stands in my neighborhood. And in high school, the art of tying fly fishing lures for my dad and brothers translated into the art of feather earrings which I sold out of my server apron from a mall restaurant. In the summer of 2011, when I was making more money on jewelry sales than waiting tables - I knew I was ready to leave Lexington, Kentucky to pursue my dreams in Los Angeles.
All of the years of costume wearing and designing in the suburbs led to wardrobe styling in the city and in 2018, I created Somewhere (like over the rainbow) Jewelry to honor my heritage and to combine all of my passions in one place.
My jewelry is trendy yet grounded in tradition and it makes the admirer stop and say - “Interesting.” But what’s special is that it’s customized to the people, places and times that I experience throughout my journey offering personalized elements so the wearer has their own story to tell.
Affordable but not cheap.Whimsical yet chic. Worn with jeans and a tee or a LBD - Be your own stylist. Always ready to wear - Somewhere.
Each piece is made by hand, to order in Venice, California.
