Though we often imagine paintings and photography when we think of art, jewelry undoubtedly also falls into that category. It’s a craft of beauty—an assembly of different kinds of metals and stones, and one that I certainly keep a collection of. I recently discovered Kendra Scott Jewelry. Not only does she have beautiful collections, but she also runs a pretty remarkable business. Here’s more about her, courtesy of her website (emphasis added by me):
In 2002, out of the extra bedroom of her home with only $500, Kendra Scott combined her love for fashion with her creative talents and began her own line of jewelry…. As Kendra continues to grow her company, she remains true to her three core philosophies: family, fashion and philanthropy. Kendra’s “family first” philosophy has always been a core value of her growing company. The birth of her two sons during the initial stages of her business influenced Kendra in creating a lifestyle company that is both flexible and fun. While fashion is the driving force for this savvy entrepreneur, the heart of Kendra’s business philosophy is in giving back to her community. Kendra sits on the board of local philanthropic organizations and works regularly with non-profits including Dress for Success, The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women, Blessings in a Backpack and The Susan G. Komen Foundation.
How great is that? It makes me feel even better about wanting to buy every single one of the necklaces on her site. These are my current favorites (click on them to get to their page on the Kendra Scott site):
