Where it all started..
Rachelle became a stay-at-home mom to her then two-year-old son after being in the workforce for almost decade. Just months after making this life change, her family became one with no income. Although it ended up being what was best for their family, the bills still came pouring in. That's when her best friend, Steph flew into the rescue! With Steph's prior experience with making and selling jewelry while living in Rhode Island, she taught Rachelle how to make a simple lariat necklace over a girls night (wine included) as a means for a creative outlet and to add some income for her family. Rachelle’s obsession grew from there.
They opened the KaraLyn Street Etsy shop in March 2017 where they initially sold lariat style necklaces only and eventually added beaded wrap bracelets and earrings to their collection as well. Since then, they've participated in local vendor markets and pop-ups and wholesale trade shows. They've created a website and sell their jewelry in boutiques throughout the Midwest!!
"We love creating jewelry that is effortless, versatile and unique. Our lariats and wrap bracelets have no clasps making it simple to throw on. You can style them to be worn casually with a sweatshirt, to work with a blazer, or on special occasions with your favorite dress."
