The courage it takes to start your own busy has always floored me. Women all over the world are taking hobbies they've nurtured as a child, or even new found loves, and creating flourishing businesses out of them. Carletta Hill is one of those women. Carletta is the founder of NatrulYou Jewels, an online jewelry boutique, specializing in an array of chic and sassy, natural inspired, wood decor earrings and all under $20! Whether studded or clip-on, there is something for you. If you're into custom, it doesn't get any better than this!
I remember the day I received that fresh package full of unknown goodies. I opened the package to find 3 beautifully unique pairs of earrings before me. I was touched at how she even customized the wooden studs to say, "Natural Love" in light of Au Natural Love. My heart almost skipped a beat as I planned out ALL possible complementing outfits in my head. I set the pairs on the table in order to immediately record there fabulousness through photograph for the next day.
When I woke up the next morning, to my un-delighted surprise, a pair was amiss. Hmm, I thought. I know I didn't miss place anything. I looked around the room, mystified, and it came to me. I picked up the phone to make a call. "Hello", my mom said. "Hey mom! Question...do you...", she interrupted, "Yes, yes. Sorry! I took the earrings." A bit annoyed I replied, "Why?"
"Because they were so cute and those were they only ones that were clip-ons and its hard to find really cute earrings that aren't heavy and that are clip-ons. You have to make them. Have you seen the ones I made?"
"Yes, mom. I've seen them, but..."
"Well, why can't you give me the earrings? You have plenty of jewelry. You can't give me those?"
"No mom, I have to review them. And I can't review them because they are on your ears."
"Oh....well can you give them to me after...?
Though it wasn't funny to me then, today I laugh at that memory. My mom must have thought these earrings pretty awesome for her to jack them off the table like that. And if so, I would have to agree. NatrulYou Jewels offers various custom and empowering designs. Some of my favorites are the "Hair We Fro Again" Afro earrings and the "Silhouette" earrings. Regardless of what you're looking for, whether simple, fun, or empowering, there is always something for you. My mom sure found her perfect pair.
