I started Golden Thread back in 2010 after leaving my nursing career in the Neonatal ICU. The brand was born out of my life-long passion for jewels, style, and all things regal, feminine and timeless. Being a homegrown Houstonian, the South has played a big part in shaping who I am and what I design— my collection has that traditional southern charm and personalization, but incorporates edgy and timeless trends, too. Sketching ideas and inspiration down on paper is my absolute favorite thing to do— there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing it all go from sketch to neck! Lately, being able to combine my two passions— accessories and helping others— by designing for Stand Up To Cancer and for Family Legacy, and getting to do so alongside my family, has been the biggest blessing! We are still a small company and business has its challenges, but that’s what I love about GT. We are a family and work as a team to create an environment that encourages and supports one another both personally and professionally.
As a wife and mother of three small children, work-life balance definitely has its strains, but the key for me has been that my family comes first! I’ve struggled with it and have had my fair share of failures along the way, but I have learned that when my priorities are in line, everything else falls into place.
Being in this position of leadership, cultivating the heart of the business and keeping our eye on the Greater purpose is what comes first for me and my team— selling gorgeous jewelry is the added bonus!! There’s are just a few of us around here, so we really do try to captivate that family feel—dependent on every member through the ups and the downs! My vision for this company is simple: to nurture relationships and to have a heart for people through teamwork, hard work and quality service! We exist to lead 1 Corinthians 10:31 by example, “Whatever you do, do it ALL for the glory of God!” Watching my passion-based business grow and flourish is such a JOY!
Have a blessed day!
