A Photo Reflection of 365 Day of Leo and Lynn Jewelry

A Photo Reflection of 365 Day of Leo and Lynn Jewelry

One year ago my dishwasher broke. Like wouldn't drain, flooded my kitchen, wet socks, wrecked my morning kind of broke.   

Oh, it was also the day I launched my dreams. So just a regular November 1st... 

I can't find the words to describe the first 365 days in business. So let's look back through the photos of the past year. 

 November 2019

The first product sold! My wonderful former student and friend, Heather, purchased the black onyx and dendritic opal crescent drop earrings just 6 minutes after Leo and Lynn Jewelry launched.

The Love Collection launched! Remember this hilarious handwritten note that I thought looked so amazing until I looked at my photos. I swear I wrote this, and not my 5 year old!

So much fun at a pop up Galentine's Day event with Lane 51, The Cole Journal, Lucid Moon Child, and Audrey with Rodan and Fields.

Another wonderful pop up, thanks to Julie McMinn. This was just one week before the stay at home order started.

As the pandemic hit, small businesses were forced to pivot and be innovative on getting products to customers. I introduced $15 gift studs to send with a customized note and I loved reading every single notes. Gift studs are here to stay and will continue in seasonal colors.

(Did you notice I skipped May? I think I was just trying to make it through remote school with my kids)

Earrings for Change were introduced as a way to give back through my business. The first earring was a gorgeous bronze shimmer stud and raised $100 for Steel Smiling Pittsburgh.

I also invested in my business with my first mini Glossies with Cristin of Goss Boss. The images completely changed my website and social content. I love working with Cristin so much!

I created 10 special necklaces made with a brick for a custom order. A woman had a brick from her childhood boarding school and asked me to design necklaces to give her to classmates as they reunited for a girls weekend.

Happiest anniversary! An amazing first year and I'm so thankful for the support, love, feedback, and community created with Leo and Lynn Jewelry. I'm celebrating you with custom earrings with one of a kind anniversary glitter.
