EMERGING DESIGNER

Tena Renee

I
am Tena Renee’, a fashion accessory designer of a different kind in Chicago, Illinois. I have been handcrafting and designing earrings, bracelets, necklaces and purses for over three years. I first started my accessory line back in July, 2005 after departing as a legal secretary for a law firm.
Tena Renee' shares with MyCloset.com in her own words how she began making such unique jewelry. It is truly a fascinating story and shows how dreams can come true when you least expect it.

One weekend I had my niece, Mariah over and we decided to go to the craft store and purchase beads to make bracelets for ourselves and the next thing you know, I realized that I was truly on to something with making jewelry. And since fashion was never going out of style, I wanted to bring an “uncommonly” style of accessories to the game. I didn’t think that my earrings and purses would get so much attention everywhere I would go. I immediately had some business cards made.

I came up with the quote, “If you don’t get attention, your earrings will” and felt that it would be the perfect quote for my style of accessories. My friends and family would call me and tell me how many compliments they received in a day by wearing my “uncommonly unique” earrings. I decided to register for a free account on MySpace to take advantage of free advertisement. I soon gained a large fan base and added the PayPal logo on my page for payments. I would have interested buyers to leave comments under the style of earring and accessories they liked and then click paypal when ready.
If you don't get attention, your earrings will!

Thank you so much, ladies! This was the celebration that almost didn't happen, after my husband lost his job, and my mom passed away unexpectedly. It came down to honoring the "or worse" of our initial vows though... we scaled back, and went ahead with it anyway. Everyone enjoyed the evening immensely.
Homeschoolmama, I'm with the other ladies, you did a wonderful job putting together your vow renewal, it looked like a day full of fun and love. I think the memory table and cocoa bar were brilliant ideas! and of course, you all looked great!!!
HSM- your vow renewal was beautiful. Those photos in the snow are incredible and I love the way you decorated in a lovely rustic way! Very nice!
Homeschoolmama your vow renewal looked like it was very special. Beautiful. Wish you and your hubby many more wonderful years together!
