Motherhood doesn't come with a manual.
Everyday is a new test and teething was just that.
Besides my family, there are 3 things I love in this world - food, traveling and jewelry. I've loved jewelry since I was little. When I was 10 years old, I snuck onto the school bus with my moms long, dangling earrings and promptly put them on before arrving to school where I was told to remove them by my teacher.
On a school trip, at the age of 13, I decided it would be a good idea to sneak off to a mall in D.C. and add 3 more piercings to my ear.
When my grandmother passed away 15 years ago I made sure to grab her amazing collection of costume jewelry and I still wear all those pieces today.
A few years back I took a Silver Jewelry Making class at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, which only inspired my love of jewelry even more.
Then, while taking a break from corporate life, I launched FRILS - my highly curated, on-line jewelry store. I ended up taking a job offer, working for the amazing Rachel Zoe, so FRILS became more of a hobby then a business.
Then, I had a baby...
After returning to work for about 6 months, I decided I wanted to stay home with my little man. So I did.
My infant son, Asher (Ash), chewed on anything he could find to soothe his sore gums. I began to seek out non-toxic teething jewelry options but everything looked more like a toy and less like a stylish piece of jewelry I’d be excited to wear.
I’m proud to create fashionable, funtional and fun products for Moms, Dads and babies that last long after the baby phase.
We’re proud to donate 5% of all Anjie + Ash purchases to charities that help parents and children in need.
XO, Anjie (Andrea)
