Created With Meaning
Meet some of the team that designed and hand selected the new collections using their unique life experiences and passion to create meaningful jewelry that helps you celebrate your story.
"I have never met a diamond that I didn’t love."
I love jewelry. Most of my passion stems from the appreciation of being able to wear Earth’s most precious resources. I am certain this is the reason I have never met a diamond that I didn’t love. Trend Forecasting is where I get the most energy in my work. I am fascinated by all the factors that affect what consumers are wearing and looking for which is more relevant now than ever.
Outside of my work you can find me painting, chasing my four boys, and enjoying an occasional weekday glass of champagne. When I seek inspiration, I turn to nature and the one and only Dolly Parton who I consider a female force within business and the creative process.
"I love how one piece of jewelry can be transformed on different women."
I love how one piece of jewelry can be transformed on different women, simply by the way it is worn. I have always been inspired by people who express themselves with unique and interesting style. One of my favorite parts in the design process is collaborating with the women on our team to build beautiful and diverse mood boards. I am always learning something new from them.
In my spare time, there is nothing I love more than spending time with my nieces and nephew. I also really enjoy painting, cooking, gardening, home renovation projects…or anything else that flexes my creative muscles!
"Jewelry is a beautiful form of expression that says something about who you are."
Fashion has always been an important part of my life. I truly believe the way you present yourself, through clothes and jewelry, sets the mood for your entire day. To me, jewelry is a beautiful form of expression that says something about who you are, all the while making you feel empowered and confident. My passion and energy for fashion, life and what I do at Stuller is inspired by my mother, as well as the hardworking, strong girlfriends and coworkers that surround me.
I am interested in all things spiritual and celestial; understanding their meanings and purpose, and how they relate to the world around us. I am very honored and proud to share these inspirations through some of the new pieces in the 302 collections.
"Travelling and the arts inspire me in styling and curating the 302 collections."
I am most thankful to be part of a team of such creative and hardworking women. I love travelling and the arts, both of which inspire me in styling and curating the 302 collections. I love adding jewelry to my everyday uniform of a t-shirt and jeans to define my simple yet chic style.
I am happiest when surrounded by my favorite things: good people, good food, good music – and my cat Elvis.
"Jewelry makes you feel empowered and ready to take on anything."
I am inspired by everyday life, which is why curating the 302 line for the everyday woman is so special to me. I love to travel and explore, whether it be in a big city or a serene quiet area in nature. I find joy in the little things like bike rides, cooking new recipes, and spending time with family and friends.
I believe jewelry can transform any look, from daytime casual to a night out. It’s the finishing touch that brings a look together and makes you feel empowered and ready to take on anything. I am so proud to be working with the amazing team of women who have been a part of the 302 Fine Jewelry line.
"Jewelry is our own living history. It’s a map of our lives."
I’ve always had a great interest in bold fine art and progressive design, and a lifelong passion for jewelry. I have been studying, creating and crafting jewelry since I was a child, which has led me to the most fulfilling career, creating today’s trends in 302 which will be passed down to become tomorrow’s heirlooms. I am most energized by the highly collaborative elements of the design process. From the spark of an idea to refining the sketch, to making small adjustments in CAD and the final touches in the details of the stone setting – working with our fantastic creative team is thrills me every day.
I believe jewelry is our own living history. It’s a map of our lives and a way for each of us to wear our accomplishments, while reflecting the aesthetics and values of each era. I enjoy working in my home studio, creating pieces to share my personal collection with my own daughters as they grow.
"You can’t live without jewelry."
You can’t live without jewelry — nor leave home without it. I’ve been in this industry for many years, and those two rules guide my desire to share 302® Fine Jewelry with women everywhere. Although necklaces and earrings are my favorite types, I’m inspired and engaged each day by all the new designs our team conceptualizes, creates, curates, and offers to jewelers.
I’m passionate about other beautiful things in life as well, namely three: sunrises, sunsets, and landscaping. I try to take photos of at least one of those three things each day. And yes, I have extra phone storage.
When not at work or enjoying the outdoors, I’m with my two boys or indulging in another hobby of mine. I love to explore the creativity and fun possible with cooking and then share these new ideas and inspirations with my family and friends. If there’s a cool new kitchen gadget, you can bet I’ll be among the first to try it!
"Jewelry classics are essentials in my jewelry box."
Data, trends, and classic jewelry styles — what a combination, right? These are the things that make me happy, especially when I can combine them at work. Jewelry classics are essentials in my jewelry box, so of course that love carries over to 302® Fine Jewelry, where I absolutely adore the Essentials Collection. Of course, I love each of the collections, but essential styles remain my favorite.
Outside of work, one of my favorite hobbies is teaching youth dancing. I’ve had an interest in the performing arts since I was three years old, so being able to merge this interest with my hobbies has been great. As a performer, I certainly know how to create an unforgettable experience when gifting jewelry to my friends and family: the people who inspire me the most each day.
"The designs I find most meaningful are classics — especially pearls!"
When I’m creating something meaningful and everlasting, that’s when I’m happiest. My work with 302® Fine Jewelry allows me to channel that happiness by helping women across the globe infuse these styles with their own meaning.
Personally, the designs I find most meaningful are classics — especially pearls! You can’t go wrong with a pair of timeless pearl earrings or with diamond studs. I also enjoy simple personalized styles, particularly earrings and necklaces, which are my favorite.
My love of creating meaningful things extends to my life outside of work. Spending time with my family, hosting parties with friends, traveling, crafting, gardening, celebrating Christmas, and enjoying sunflowers are how I fill my time with those in my life. These activities give me the opportunity to make and capture memories with them, just as jewelry allows us to capture memories in a tangible form.
"The women I design jewelry for…are strong but embrace femininity."
As an artist and designer, I’m happiest when I’m creating. Whether that’s working in my garden or knitting a sweater for a new baby, I’m a creator to the core. My job allows me to explore this creativity, where I often draw inspiration from the women I design jewelry for. They are strong but embrace femininity in all its delicate beauty. And of course, they love sparkle, whether that’s a lot or just a little. That’s the beauty of 302 Fine Jewelry: it’s all about the wearer’s individual preferences.
The part of designing I enjoy the most is when I can gather the fragments of an idea from my head and then realize that design on paper. From there, I flesh out the details with pencil and paint until I’ve created something that I’m ready to share with the world. And, sometimes, when the finished design looks just as I imagined, it feels like lightning in a bottle.
"Everything I draw is a happy little accident."
I’m a bit like Bob Ross: everything I draw is a happy little accident. And fewer things make me happier than drawing — which is fantastic because, lucky me, I get to do that every day! I’m part of the 302®Fine Jewelry design team, where the work of Tomasz Donocik inspires me.
Outside of work, I’m the proud dog momma of Flynn “Ryder” Mitchell. One of my favorite things to do is travel and get to see the different trends in other areas. There’s always something to take back with me and incorporate into future 302 designs.
