Last week I had the opportunity to attend Kendra Scott's launch party for her new line Atlantic! Kendra opened her Scottsdale location in December of 2012 up in the Scottsdale Quarter, perfect location for perfect jewels! She launched her Spring 2014 line Atlantic last week + the jewels are to die for. I had the pleasure to sit with Kendra herself to ask her a few questions that have been burning in my head. 

Of course the first question that came out of my mouth was "Where did your inspiration for Atlantic come about?!" Kendra disclosed that she had been at the beach when she found a coral fan that she actually used as a mold for the stones. She wanted the environment such as the sun to bring out an aquatic feel which can instantly be seen once looking at the stones in the collection. 

A few other questions I asked Kendra aside from her latest line was what advice she had for young designers /  or young business owners? She gave me 3 main points (although she had plenty!!)
1. put your own style / thumb print into your business. Staying true to yourself will ensure your work is unique!
2. Surround yourself with people who are supportive to you! You may not be taking the path everyone else is and it may be difficult so it is important to have people who will always believe in you and support you when times get hard. 
3. Find a mentor (or multiple mentors) who can guide + give you feedback. Each time you get to a new level find a mentor who can take you to the next. Kendra still continues to find mentors as her business grows. 

If you have not yet already checked out the Atlantic collection get on it asap! I promise you will love!
