How you helped Sally Hoffman Designs become a reality
About Sally Hoffman Designs
Passion and Journey – oh, my!!
Sally Hoffman Designs’ Passion was fueled early in my life. I was born into a family of creatives. As a small girl, I remember my mother designing beautiful doll houses complete with miniature furniture and gorgeous little dolls from the hollyhock flowers. At that young age I was infused with rich spirit and creative talent.
My inner passion to learn and create continued to grow and today it shows through my work. I am innovative in the way I combine my beads and metals and addicted to enjoying my beautiful and productive studio, where my ideas become reality. Sally Hoffman Designs invites you to wear their jewelry with love and passion.
CVO, Sally Hoffman Designs
Sally Hoffman Designs’ Passion – Before my Sally Hoffman Designs journey became a reality, my career was as a business manager in a school district. I spent my evenings and weekends at work. That was not my passion!!
Then one day I retired from my day job and realized that I could create jewelry that would make people deliriously happy. That became both my passion and my journey from that day forward….
When I started creating jewelry for friends and family and I could not keep up with the demand – my heart was filled with love.
At that moment, I decided I would set out to create authentic, praise worthy jewelry that would make people proud to wear Sally Hoffman Designs and they would tell all of their friends about it.
The artist in me passionately wanted Sally Hoffman Designs to become the newest buzz word for the woman who loves to wear the beautiful • distinctive • unusual jewelry in town.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
There weren’t enough hours in the day or enough energy to produce the quality or quantity in demand. I needed to take a break and get organized – both my business life and my personal life were suffering. If success was going to be mine, I needed to kick butt and take names.
In other words,
The next few years were spent enrolling in every business class, purchasing every jewelry making tutorial, attending every workshop related to jewelry and metal smithing that I could find. My biggest fear was that no one would like the jewelry that I was creating. I feared my customers wouldn’t come back and I was exhausted.
Through it all, I began releasing my first creations and the response has been epic. I have enjoyed pure love from everyone who sees and purchases my jewelry. The fun has just begun and I thank each and every one of my customers for continuing to be my biggest and most loyal fans
Above all, I am thrilled that everyone who wears Sally Hoffman Designs jewelry, knows they are getting a unique piece worthy of the next generation. This is my passion!
– I love you and you ARE the heart and soul of what I do.
