I founded g after getting very sick in 2016. I had a few hard years personally and professionally and found myself in a deep, deep state of anxiety and depression. (A divorce, move and career shift will do that to you, huh?) After , I decided to write out a list of things that I honestly wanted to do with my life. (I really like lists.) Some of the things I wrote were pipe dreams like, write a memoir, but other goals were smaller, more achievable, like "start making jewelry again."
I've been designing jewelry for over 10 years. I had a line in college called Merebelle. (Mother lovely in French. So créatif!) In middle school I made plastic and glass pieces for (maybe two) friends. Crafting jewelry is something I know how to do, but more importantly, something I really love to do. When I wrote "Start making jewelry" down on the list, I already had a clear picture of what I wanted the jewelry to look like. I wanted to make simple, fun pieces out of clay, and string them on leather. Super simple. Done and done. I went out that day and bought clay, and made my very first g jewelry piece. And as they say, le reste est l'histoire!
