So excited to get back into our #TellYouTuesday blog posts and introduce you to new amazing shops! This week we are featuring Simply Chic Jewelry. SCJ has been open since October 2014. Rachael is the owner, designer, marketer, shipping manager, etc! Her shop features hand soldered jewelry items using precious metals (gold filled, Sterling silver and solid gold) and gemstones.
Here is a little more about the owner! Hello! I’m Rachael and I currently reside in St Louis, MO with my four cats, one dog, husband and son. I have been making jewelry since I was a teen but became interested in selling jewelry in 2011. I have earned my MBA in General Management and have always wanted to be the #girlboss of my own business.I have tried different styles of jewelry, as my tastes are eclectic. But two things are absolutely certain: I am inspired by color and always go back to making simple pieces. I realized that I have more “simple and delicate pieces” than I do of the “complex, multi supply, statement, lots of strands” pieces. I like jewelry that I can wear for any occasion. Thus, Simply Chic Jewelry was born!
My thought process behind my name came from a few definitions. I wanted Simply Chic to describe my jewelry so potential customers knew what to expect. I like my jewelry to have only a few focal elements and remain aesthetically pleasing. Wear them to work or for a night out on the town; they can be mixed and matched with any type of style. You will notice a lot of my pieces will come in different colors and that’s because I like variety. So I wanted to pass that on to my customers. If I love a particular style of shirt, I have to have it in every color. It’s the same way with my jewelry!
Every piece is thought out, designed, handmade, photographed and packaged in my basement studio which is free from pet dander. I am forever a student and am willing to learn new techniques as time goes on.
