We're a sucker for jewelry that's sparkly, hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind, especially when it has an amazing backstory. Golden Thread Jewelry is a luxe line of customizable accessories, with simple pendants that are great for everyday wear as well as dressier options for special occasions.
The line was started by Jennifer Welker, who was working as a neonatal ICU nurse. Her job was so emotionally draining that she used jewelry making an outlet. After getting requests from friends, she set up an Etsy store and now has a profitable line as well as celebrity fans, like Pippa Middleton, who was seen out and about wearing a Golden Thread Jewelry pendant necklace.
If you are in the New York City-area, you can meet Welker in person tomorrow at her trunk show at the 5th Avenue location of Saks Fifth Avenue. Details are below and click here to check out the line.
