EM.K Designs & Co. was originally created in the winter of 2017. Inspired by her sisters, Erin, Megan, and Kristy, she created the name EM.K with their first initials, to honor the bond that they share. While a dream was planted, excuses were still made- no proper training, a busy school schedule, and a heart that was elsewhere. With those excuses flooding her mind, she halted sales that following summer. But, like all good stories, this one comes back around.
Our founder, Emily, was reunited with her passion of this creative outlet in the winter of 2019. She underwent proper training and design education, participated in entrepreneurship courses, and found clarity on where her heart lies. She knew she loved to help others, as well as the creative process of designing, making, and crafting jewelry. In the spring of 2020, EM.K was reborn.
Each piece is handcrafted by Emily utilizing beads and materials from other small businesses. Supporting small businesses is second nature to her, for she is aware of how each purchase makes a difference. She sources fair-trade, as much possible, and donates 10% of each purchase to Girls Inc.
