The Origin Story
I'm Liz, the creator of Liz.Beth Jewelry Co.! I am passionately curious and always on the hunt for learning new things. It is no surprise that one of my favorite places is The American Museum of Natural History in NYC. One day I found myself wandering The Morgan Memorial Hall of gems that houses over 100,00 stones! I was never particularly interested in the world of gemstones and crystals but after this eye-opening exhibit, I was hooked. The shapes, the colors, and the allure of each stone was breathtaking. I wanted to share my new love with the rest of the world, which led to the birth of Liz.Beth Jewelry Co.! A collection of dainty, handmade precious and semi-precious gemstone jewelry.
The Face Behind The Brand
Ever since I got my first debit card I have chosen to shop on Etsy for handmade, meaningful gifts and always thought, "these people are so lucky to own their own business and do what they love". Before each purchase, I would read each shop's "About Me" section and browse photos of their clean, minimal workspaces as well as admiring the effortless style of the shop owners. My workspace is anything but. My desk area has at least ten reminder sticky notes because I refuse to use the calendar on my phone. There are almost always two dog beds around so my babies/coworkers can be nearby. And mountains of jewelry boxes cover my shelves so I never run out! I call it "organized chaos". My effortless shop owner style consists of wearing one of my husband's sweaters, worn-out jeans, and no makeup. I may be different from other shop owners, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
A Purchase With A Purpose
From the beginning, I knew Liz.Beth Jewelry Co. had to have a mission. I wanted to make a difference somehow. It didn't take long to realize that I needed to focus on something that hit close to home- domestic violence. It is an issue that affects millions of women (and men) around the world, yet nobody wants to talk about it. Liz.Beth Jewelry Co. wants to encourage others to empower and uplift women. This is why every purchase from my shop helps foundations dedicated to combating domestic violence by assisting victims, changing legislation, and spreading awareness.
Thank you for supporting my one-woman owned, small business!
