Hi everyone! I'm the Jilly behind Jilly Bean Jewelry. I wanted to introduce myself and my new blog. A little about me, I'm 29 years old for another 4 days, I'm married to the most amazing man on the planet (you can read more about us here), I live in Utah, and I've been a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show 4 times!
I started my jewelry company in 2010 after I became extremely ill and was unable to continue my job as a real estate agent. I was in the hospital and was bored out of my mind when I asked my husband to go to the craft store and get me a project. He came back with an earring making kit. I fell in love that day. I've been making jewelry ever since.
My hand stamped part of my business started in 2013. A friend of mine asked me if I could make a special piece for a mother that had recently lost her 8 year old son. She wanted a piece that would help her to remember him whenever she wore it. I found out the things that he loved, and created a piece around it. I found the charms, designed the heart, and made this special piece. Once I made this, I was hooked. Not only was my original "Girlfriend" style necklace created, but I found my calling in this world. I needed to make special, memorial jewelry for people. That's how it all began!
I started an instagram page and a facebook page when my jewelry started to take off. You can find me on instagram @jillybeanjewelry
You can find my facebook page here.
I absolutely love what I do and I feel so grateful that you do as well. I never imagined that I would be lucky enough to do something that I love for a living. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
I wanted to show you some examples of my work from the beginning to now.
Amanda is an amazing woman inside and out, and I'm honored to know her. I'm so touched that she would not only wear my jewelry, but that she loved it enough to post it on her blog. If you haven't checked her out you should!
Our "Gold Bar" necklace is $25.99 or $42.99 for Gold Filled. Contact me at email@example.com to order
