About Me

HI EVERYONE! WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!

Nearly 8 years ago I took my basement hobby of making jewelry to a multi-million-dollar company in just a few years. And did it while raising five children on my own. As a former stay-at-home mom with a serious creative streak, I wanted to find a way to capture my love for my children. I developed my own unique approach to jewelry design, and my work quickly garnered attention. I went from selling jewelry out of my home and retail boutiques, to founding Jewel Kade, a direct sales company with thousands of Stylists across the US and Canada. Recently I sold my artisan jewelry company to Thirty-One Gifts (one of the nation’s premier direct sales companies), and now I get to continue my passion, creating jewelry designs known as JK by Thirty-One. For me, the most rewarding part of my unexpected journey has been helping change lives—including my own—through something as simple as jewelry.

I am turning 50 this year!  I am happily married (newlywed) and surrounded by our children and a lot of family! My family means the world to me!  Through all of this, I have been able to share my love for style and fashion!

MY ULTIMATE PASSION IS TO INSPIRE WOMEN, HELP THEM RECOGNIZE THEIR OWN BEAUTY AND POTENTIAL!
