Sometime in 2012, after trying to turn a few hobbies into a business (and failing), I decided that I'd give it another shot. I dreamed up this idea of having a jewelry store for a while. I had no idea what it would look like. All I knew was that I had an obsession with accessories and a mountain of jewelry that should only get bigger. I decided to give it a go, not knowing that this time though, it would be bigger, scarier and better.
In October, I launched a little side thing called olive + piper, with some savings, a handful of products and a background in Sciences.
In a year's time, I was so over my day job, desperate to get out. I couldn't find a new job so I decided to quit. And I did. (I kept it a secret from my family, because quitting your job without a back-up plan and a new home is completely irresponsible.)
With no luck finding work, I spent my time on olive + piper - fueled with a love for jewelry, boiled cabbage dinners and a fear of losing my home. Things picked up - up, down and up again. Now, a couple of years later, we're still kicking and sparkling more than ever - all thanks to you. Olive jewelry. I don't believe it's something you mindlessly throw on before you head out the door. It can do so much for you - to your look, your confidence and how you feel. It's the finishing touch, and that extra boost of confidence that gets you thinking "Girl, I look gooood!" So thanks for joining us on this journey and letting me share my love with you. Now back to work - to bring you your next favorite bauble. ;) xoxo, Tania
PS - Don't worry, my family knows that olive + piper is my main squeeze.
