The jewelry business, when creating and ordering in large quantities, is complicated. Who would have thought, right? I didn’t see it coming. We need experts in the fields of design, model making, computer 3D designs, assembling, soldering, plating, and carding. And there is more! lol
Even though we had imported jewelry (Fair Trade from Mexico) for 15 years, and I made and learned about jewelry myself, sorority jewelry was a whole new ballgame.
Fortunately for me, I knew a man who knew a man who knew a man….
This man is Kerry. If I told you his last name….well, you know.
Every original piece (called a model) has gone through his hands first. Equally as important is knowing the big picture, and how to get things done. Prior to his current position, he created and produced jewelry for Home Shopping Network, among others. Kerry has a heart for people and their creations. His enthusiasm abounds for our progress–and I appreciate the support. 🙂
All of our sorority jewelry is made by small family businesses with people like Kerry. Virtually everyone has a daughter, and everyone cares about the quality of jewelry that they make for Athena Spirit. They are part of the home team; American pride at it’s best.
We genuinely appreciate your patronage, and so do all of the folks involved in our jewelry making process.
