"I was born and raised in Seattle, WA but relocated to Miami in 2017. I have degrees in both Interior Architecture and User Experience Design. I started Le Chic Miami in March of 2017. Le Chic Miami sells handmade wooden earrings which I design and hand paint myself. After finishing design school I knew I wanted to do something creative and design related but I wasn’t sure what. I also knew I wanted to work for myself and not work in an office. After moving down to Miami I joined a makerspace, where I learned how to use their laser cutter. I started making earrings and decided to try and sell them at a local weekend market. After that the business just took off."
