In HER words :: “A year from now you will wish you had started today.”  As I read those words over and over again I was haunted by the simple truth of them.  And so from a Karen Lamb quote Waiting on Martha was born. 

My signature jewelry style is a combination of semi-precious gemstone bracelets accented with Swarovski rhinestones and charms, mixed and stacked together…the more bracelets the better!  As well as longer beaded boho-chic necklaces and earrings.  The look should appear effortless, though we know nothing stylish is truly ever effortless.  I also stand behind a couple of key principles; I don’t create anything I wouldn’t wear myself, and every piece must be on-trend and reasonably priced.  This never rang more true than when I was strolling through Neiman Marcus and saw one of my bracelets for sale.  Well not my bracelet per se, but identical to ones I create minus the $450 price tag!  My jaw dropped, since when should a bracelet not dripping with diamonds cost $450?! 

Waiting on Martha is truly a labor of love.  Everything from the design, creation, branding, photos, packaging, and hours logged on social media is all done by me…and my husband when I compensate him with tickets to the Chicago Cubs.  In the near future I plan to launch my earring and ring line followed by Waiting on Martha Home which will feature handmade goods such as soy candles, serving trays, and edible goodies.

As I sit here and write this bio dreaming of what Waiting on Martha will become I’m struck by the support of people I’ve never even met!  The LaunchHer team, my Twitter family, and the new customers who have believed enough to buy my jewelry.  I am humbled and thank you all for the love!  XOXO – Mandy Kellogg Rye, aka Waiting on Martha
