Q: What year did you conceptualize Jewels To Jet?
JW: "I came up with the idea in 2014, after years of packing our family suitcases. Every time we traveled, I was the one that had to pack the kids' luggage, my husband's and my own. By the time I got to my suitcase it was just pack the basics, but the final question was always what jewelry to wear to dress up those basic?"
Q: How did you think of this as a business idea?
JW: "It was really just the idea of what is practical. I was so over clasp jewelry and needing help to get jewelry on. It should not be a stressful thing. I'm going out to have a nice evening, a fun time with friends and family...yet I'm getting annoyed with a clasp. So silly! And what a time waster it was becoming. I wanted to get out and do things or get to dinner and not think about any of it. It just made sense to me and thought other people would agree."
Q: What is are your favorite travel destinations?
JW: My absolute favorite destinations are Hawaii and Australia! I could go to Hawaii, specifically Kaui, any time or every time haha. I loved Australia. It's an intense flight and long travel time, but there is no where on Earth like it. I also really loved Copenhagen quite a bit and would love to go again.
Q: What do you like to pack when traveling?
JW: I pack a lot of dark colored clothing and tops. I like to wear dark tops for the slimming effect and then my jewelry really pops off of that!
Q: What collections do you personally use the most?
JW: I personally wear New Monet, New Kingston gold together a lot. I love the shine and sparkle of the jewels on the Monet sets and Kingston and Monaco are my go to extenders for everything. I also wear Miro quite a lot, since I wear black. It really goes with everything. Love that Miro Bracelet. I also recently went to Las Vegas and wore that set and got so many compliments. I can't wait for it to launch in a few weeks!!
