Spotlight on Acquired Taste Jewelry plus a Giveaway!

30 Jun

Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Kimberly Nicole, owner of Acquired Taste Jewelry. Kimberly is also a former high school classmate of mine which makes this post extra special to me. Its funny how it seems like it was only last year when we reminisce about our days at CHS.

Acquired Taste Jewelry features jewelry handmade by Kimberly herself with her special style and creativity.

MGS: What makes Acquired Taste Jewelry different from other jewelry retailers?

Kimberly Nicole: I try to design jewelry that is not the everyday norm and gives different options for people who like stylish and creative pieces and are looking for the next different accessories to make their outfits pop.

MGS: When did you discover your passion for creating jewelry? 

Kimberly Nicole: In my youth as a little girl and even now I’ve always had a passion for making things with my hands, and the arts. I discovered making jewelry as a hobby in one of my favorite craft stores, and it has build years later into a fascinating business.

MGS: Why did you decide to start your own business?

Kimberly Nicole: I started making jewelry for friends and family back in 2000. My mother encouraged me to make a business out of doing what I love. I decided to make it official in 2008 

MGS: Any advice for other women that may be thinking of starting their own jewelry business?

Kimberly Nicole: Start off with a plan covering all your basic necessities to get started ,build a fan base through family, friends, church members , co-workers, sororities , friends of friends etc etc (get your business name out there), also keep the faith in your business, don’t get down or discouraged 🙂

MGS: Which of your current pieces is your favorite?

Kimberly Nicole: It’s kind of weird but there is a pair of green spotted earrings that are my favorite, they don’t match very much in my closet but they are so cute to me LOL.

MGS: Do you offer custom pieces for those wanting to match a certain outfit?

Kimberly Nicole: Oh yes! I love making custom pieces. I’ve had clients send me photos of things from a piece of fabric, a shade of color/texture, and even a photo of a dress. Whatever I am given I will work with to create a beautiful piece.
