Today, I'm sitting in the shop and feeling incredibly thankful. When I first started Alyssa & Anna, I had a really big dream with a really small budget. I bought used showcases from craigslist and made the best out of what I had. Now, a year and a half later, everything in our showroom and studio is custom made by local artisans, from the cases, to the furniture, and even the decor. How far we've come and how much we've accomplished in just 1.5 years, makes me really proud, and I feel so grateful to be able to live this life. We have a bit more to do, but our store is finally staring to resemble exactly who we are. We may not be a giant and flashy independent jeweler, but I think we're something a lot more special.
My hope for us is to always be thoughtful, to always be authentic, and to continue to create a an atmosphere and jewelry that we're proud of.
