Jewelry has always been a passion for me. I often found myself looking at pieces available for and thinking “why can’t I find what I am looking for!!??”
Jewelry design is literally in my DNA- my grandmother Thursa, who is part Cherokee Indian, spent a lot of her free time spinning webs of dream catchers and intricate beading while telling stories of our ancestors. I incorporated her passion for our heritage with my passion for fashion and the unexpected and Soulful-Lee Yours was born.
I am a mother of 4 and a full time preschool teacher, but you will always find me, in my free time, hunched over my jewelry table or devouring the latest fashion blogs and magazines seeking inspiration. I truly believe nothing makes a woman feel more together than the right piece of jewelry, and it is that belief that fuels my desire to stay on trend and provide my customers with fresh and exciting pieces!
I love what I do and hope to one day make my unique and individual, one of a kind pieces full time! I hope you can feel the love and passion that was put into every piece the team at Soulful-lee yours creates. I am lucky enough to have a very creative team, including my closest friends and sister- we love coming up with new and innovative pieces and we hope that translates in our art! Enjoy!

This past friday we had a 75 mph storm that knocked out power to many- us being one of the 'lucky' ones. It was a test of our survival tactics in the dark. Despite the 14 year old (who whined until we agreed to let him stay somewhere else), we all passed. The 4 year old was extremely befuddled and was unable to comprehend WHY he couldn't watch The Upside Down Show (our new favorite). I showed him what 'FUN' we could have in the dark- by playing jenga , and working on his journal all by a warm glow of the lantern. He eventually fell asleep a lot earlier than normal, so I took the opportunity to work in the studio and CREATE. I am not going to lie...it was a bit inhibiting not being able to see a few inches from me...but I love a challenge. So ladies, this goes to show you how committed I am to keeping you all gorgeous, even during a 24 hour power outage!

I don't know about you, but I am definitely feeling that autumn rush. Perhaps it's because I have been buying the four boys school supplies for the last month (and let me add that I am not done yet) or because as I am typing this I am wearing a sweater. Brrrr. OR, it's because Teri, Wendy, Merry and myself having been working on our fall collection!

I am not sure exactly what I will even write about....jewelry, inspirations, kids. I guess I will let it just take it's course, which is a lesson I have been learning and struggling with. I would like to share thoughts and ideas with friends, family, and customers. So, welcome all to my new blog.
