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…
