They Thought That I Was Just One Overambitious Teen, Then I Proved Them Wrong
When you tell people “I’m going to be successful” and you are only 14, they tell you you’re crazy. Instead listening to those people I worked hard and proved you can do anything you set your mind to. Now being 16, I can say the two years of running my business was a dream come true. In less than 2 years I’ve sold more than 2200 pieces of my jewelry to 60 different countries all around the world. Now only the sky is a limit! I’ve grown so much and so did my business, I am planning to release my first collection and can’t wait to show it to all of you, but first I can show jewelry I have created till now.
I’m a 16 year old high school girl from Slovenia. I am an enthusiastic and hard working with big plans for the future. With my parents and sisters we created the “Maristella” shop and decided to dedicate our time into making unique and good quality jewelry. It is a family shop that brought us closer together.
I started creating after my grandmother passed in late 2013, but then it was only a hobby. I always had the desire to create something beautiful and unique. I started creating sea themed handmade jewelry with real starfishes, old Mediterranean seashells, real sea glass, real sand, corals and real dried moss.
I love saying that everything happens for a reason and I don’t think you are “too young” or “too old” to start doing what you love to do. In my case I love to create jewelry and look at me now a 16 year old, whose dreams have come true.
