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!

'Tis The Season

Happy Holidays To All! I am sure I am not the only one running around like a crazed lunatic, preparing for the holidays! To add to the craziness, Soulful-Lee has been preparing for Winter On Main this Friday and Saturday and another holiday fair next weekend in Fox Point. Busy little elves we are!

But I promised myself that this holiday, I will keep myself grounded and not be a part of the commercialism of Christmas. My childhood Christmas's weren't memorable, so with my children I try my best to make theirs 'magical' and everything that mine wasn't. In the past, I was succumbed to the materialism of Christmas, giving my kid's all of the gifts they could wish for. They are great kids, so they never asked for much....so it made it even easier for me to want to spoil them.

With money hardships and struggles, we have learned to live simple. Not that we have ever really lived beyond our means in the first place. But we do more family games than movies, home cooked meals than eating out. Back to basics. So this holiday, we will do just that. Hopefully.

I hope you all have a magical, and meaningful Holiday, also! Peace!
