About the Designer in her Own Words:
I came to US with my parents in year 2002 right after graduating from University of Economics in Krakow, Major Marketing and Management, minor Small Business Managamenet. Despite the strict business studies I always was interesting in art and craft.
I was looking for the way to express that interest and finally decided to put my attention into natural stones and designing jewelry and that's how My journey with jewelry started. First it was just a hobby and than in 2010 I launched my company TherArt Jewelry , Inc. I sold my first piece on my birthday :)
This way I was able to combine my passion for creating and business education.
After 5 years I decided to take it to another level and this is when the idea of the boutique was born.
I do have double citizenship and that is how I consider myself, half Polish and half American.
I do value and feel so fortunate that I can benefit from both culture in different but still best way. I was raised in Poland and get strong values both work and family . Because of cultural gap I think i do have different point of view at some matters that i think can give me some strong adventages in running a business. At the same time I had a chance to start my proffesional life in United States and that definitely helped me to achieve another level of self development. I love the business environment here in US. I think starting a business is much easier and the feel of the "county of many opportunities" give more courage to all people starting their businesses.
