What’s the best part of owning your business? How about the toughest?
The best part is that I have creative control of what is being made and how I make it. I get to express myself through a creative outlet.
This is my passion, and every step I take is close to my heart. The toughest part is that I’m fully responsible for the quality of the Jewelry while making sure I am progressing the business aspects of Somerton Studios. It is important to keep my head up and remember that every mistake and problem is a step closer to growing my business. I have self-taught myself this craft every step of the way.
On average how many hours do you work on your business each week?
Somerton Studios is my side hustle. Soon it will be my full-time gig. I work at a local restaurant serving food and bartending to fill the gaps. When I am not working my day job you can find me making jewelry. I enjoy my craft so much I get lost counting the hours I have put into this business.
What’s Somerton Studio’s core mission and vision?
I want to empower anyone who wears our designs. Our jewelry serves as a vessel for our individuality - it inspires our energy, mood, and confidence with every piece we wear. It’s an opportunity to show who we are, to be bold, and to take risks. We need to dream big and live even bigger. At Somerton Studios, I strive to create earrings that will inspire you to embrace your uniqueness.
What's your definition of success for this business?
Success for Somerton Studios means that I am able to create quality jewelry and maintain the integrity of the business.
What’s next for you, your brand, or your business?
The next step for Somerton Studios is to enter more markets, run a workshop where people can learn how to make their own piece of custom jewelry, and having our line in local stores.
