After my trip to Machu Picchu I knew that I couldn’t continue working an office job because I felt a sense of freedom in the mountains and my soul needed more. I went back to work but a couple months after, I was terminated. And just like in the movies, I left with my $5 dollar money tree plant that I bought at the farmer’s market and went home to think about my big next step.
While I was in Peru my admiration for artisan women grew at every stall at the flea market. I realized that I was not only looking at jewelry but I was looking at generational artistic craftsmanship and I knew I wanted to take part of it. I wanted to create something authentic, something that represented my culture, my beliefs, and my dreams. But I was a bit lost until one day, I saw a beautiful pair of beaded earrings on Instagram and that was it. I felt a connection right away. I got on YouTube and taught myself how to make beaded earrings within a week.
Fast forward time, I can finally call myself not only an entrepreneur but a jewelry designer. Every day I am grateful for having this opportunity and privilege to make my dream come true and I am a believer that with the right mind-set and perseverance you can achieve your wildest dreams. I will continue this beautiful journey to use the fashion platform to create a brand that values authenticity, culture, and creativity.
