Hello to my wonderful readers, I am so beyond thrilled to share this post with you. It involves the most amazing, precious, and sentimental jewelry that I have ever seen. I met Colleen initially when she won a Monat Raffle through a MOMtrepreneur giveaway that I was a part of. Our paths then crossed several times within the next few months. So much so that it was inevitable that we would collaborate.
I would like to now introduce you to Colleen Berg and share with you the story of her jewelry line.
Colleen Berg started her business over 17 years ago, when she was pregnant with her first daughter. She was working in advertising but wanted to work from home when her daughter was born. She managed to sign several agreements with different ad agencies to work freelance from home. September 11th happened and Sofia was born 3 days later. Businesses were worried about the economy and within a couple of weeks, the jobs she had contracted were cancelled. Knowing her family was a 2-income household, she was still hoping to work from home. Jewelry making had always been a hobby and she decided to turn it into a business.
