Joyce says, "I started Jewelry With Me in 2010 after an attempt at selling direct sales jewelry for a home party company. Putting so much time, effort and money into something that wasn’t mine made me think that with my creativity I should be doing something different so at a natural hair conference I took a loc jewelry making class with my daughter and instantly knew I would start making something. I purchased some wire, researched and watched videos and discovered a bunch of rings I didn’t like. So, I twisted a ring from the wire I had and wore it to work. My co-workers saw it, loved it and wanted rings of their own. After that a ring business started and grew into me making all kinds of jewelry, bookmarks, wine glass charms along with custom decorative wire items.
"I am a Philly girl all the way! I grew up in the Fern Rock section of the city. I have two children and a grandson, and they have been my biggest inspiration for wanting to be a businesswoman. My daughter who is now 21 helps me with design ideals, she models for me and has vended events for and with me. I am proud and happy to pass down the entrepreneurial bug to her.
'Jewelry With Me is a fun, funky, colorful custom line of jewelry that is inexpensive and made to show off your unique style. It’s everyday jewelry that I hope will become the favorite pieces to wear and people will want to purchase lots of different styles and colors of! Everything is made from anodized aluminum wire and sterling silver. It’s lightweight, non-tarnishing and hypo allergenic. Each piece is a one of a kind handmade work of art! Made for you, by me with LOVE!"
