Name: Halle Richardson
Occupation: Custom Jewelry Designer for private clients and Creative Director at Spectragem, Inc.
The Design Story: I worked in clinical research and research accreditation for five years and discovered a passion for the creative art of designing jewelry. I then researched (of course) a degree that would allow me to learn from the best of the best in the design field. It took me to the Fashion Institute of Technology and I received a degree in Jewelry Design. Five years later, here I am, doing what I love. Part luck and timing, but mostly hard work…and I relish in each new experience. I am living the creative’s dream…doing what you love and getting paid for it.
