The first necklace I made wasn't with a business plan in mind, it was a handmade Christmas gift for a friend. She loved it and would get constant compliments on it. Shortly after word of mouth orders from friends started to stream in. A lightbulb went on and with a hope, a prayer and a weeks worth of grocery money I launched what is now The Jones Market. Originally, I created the necklaces as pretty statement pieces for women, easy to dress up or down and lightweight enough to be comfortable all day. At the time I had a 6 month old baby and it didn't take long to realize that babies LOVE them too. I spent the next two years researching and perfecting them and several generations later we have the tuggable, non-toxic necklaces in the shop today. What I love about our necklaces is they have always been designed for all women, but those of us who are mamas don't have to sacrifice beauty for function. The fact that they are baby friendly is the icing on the cake.
I feel grateful every single day to do work I absolutely love. My husband, two children, dappled dachshund and I live in Westerville, Ohio. The Jones Market showroom and workshop is housed in the historic Stoner House in Uptown Westerville.
Thank you for your support of this handmade business of mine.
I hope you treat yourself or someone you love to something special today.
