SharedData(1)

I was born in St. Croix, USVI. I have been living in Suburban New Jersey since the age of 3. From such a young age I have always been creative.  I am one of those people that believe I can do anything once I put my mind to it.

There were three careers I always wanted to achieve:  Professional Ballet Dancer, Corporate Attorney and Designer.

About the company

I created N A Waterman “Eye Catching Jewelry” in 2003.  I design and handcraft all of the jeweled pieces.

WHY START A JEWELRY BUSINESS:

I am passionate about fashion and I absolutely love jewelry.  I believe that a great piece of jeweled accessory completes any attire.

The business actually came about from a vacation to the Cayman Islands in 2003. I could not find any unique pieces of jewelry that matched the wardrobe I was taking on my trip.  Also, I just love wearing jewelry with my swimsuits.  One day it just dawned on me that I could make the exact type of jeweled pieces I was looking for and I did just that.

When family and friends saw the pictures from my vacation, they immediately wanted to know where I bought my jewelry.

Needless to say, I began creating pieces for my family and friends.  The word quickly spread and I began having jewelry shows with much success. Due to that success, I decided to widen my market and start an online boutique. And the rest is history…
