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!

Fall Is In The Air

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!

We are all incredibly stoked about our new designs and fabulous ideas we are coming up with for the new seasons. Also in the works are doing 'trunk shows' (if anyone wants to be the first, give a holler) AND we have some art fairs getting lined up.

Whew...I made it! It was a long week with daycare, working on business pr'ing, and not feeling so well.
My goals this weekend (besides spending quality time with my family :)) are:

1) To learn how to wire wrap rings. Something I have always wanted to try- so I will give it a whirl.
2) We are also working on finishing our fall collection which will be whimsical, eclectic with a twist of romance. I am excited to share it with you!
3 )We are preparing for our END OF THE SUMMER SALE which begins August 9th. I will be posting pictures of the items or you can call to set up a time to visit.
4) Getting pieces ready to ship off to Project M Boutique and Boutique Revolution.

What are your plans? I hope you all have a good weekend! Peace n love

A New Adventure

Well, a few months ago I made the statement 'I could NEVER figure out how to create a blog'. Hi. Here I am. As I am typing this, I really don't know if this blog thing will work. But in order to keep up with this evolution I am going through with myself, I had no more excuses to not try.

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.
