What ignited the spark in you to start your business?
My jewelry business has been my full time job for over 10 years. I predominantly sell wholesale to gift shops and boutiques nationwide as well as setting up under EZ-up tents and at pop ups. After doing that for some time, I wanted to create a permanent space to showcase my entire line of jewelry as well as including wares from other Louisiana based artists and entrepreneurs.
