SHOP SMALL // Janine's Jewelry Design, Holliston MA
Hi friends! Happy Thursday!! If you love jewelry you will love todays blog post. Today I am featuring the fabulous Janine Gerade who owns Janine's Jewelry Design located right in downtown Holliston! If you haven't been to downtown Holliston it is the cutest little area to walk around. There are the cutest shops, a park for kids and everyone is so friendly! When my husband and I moved to Holliston 3 years ago we knew the town was beautiful, but the more people we meet and especially with starting this blog series I have discovered that there are SO many people who are small business owners!
The business owners in Holliston are great people and Janine is no exception. Her jewelry shop is warm and inviting and her pieces are stunning. She started her jewelry business 12 years years ago and she has been at her Holliston location for 3 years. Janine has always loved jewelry since she was a little girl. She used to create those little safety pins with tiny beads on them that you could put on your shoes and hand them out at school. Janine told me that her first jewelry pieces she made to sell were polymer clay fish necklaces at a Phish concert. People bought them and she was hooked! She knew she wanted to make a career out of this. Walking through Janine's store was such a treat. Her jewelry is beautiful and it was really fun to photograph. She offers such a variety of styles and types of handcrafted jewelry made from gemstones, sterling silver, glass, clay and more! Janine also offers costume jewelry repair! This is unique because many jewelry shop won't work on costume jewelry, they focus on precious gems and metals. So what happens if that artificial pearl necklace you absolutely love breaks? Take it into Janine! She also has helped customers take costume jewelry pieces they no longer wear and create totally new pieces! Janine also sells her own artwork at her shop. She enjoys painting and you can find a few of her pieces in her store for sale!
Janine is a fellow business mama and she is a great person to follow! I will link her social media pages and I would love if you gave her a follow! You can also visit her website HERE and take a virtual tour of her shop! During a pandemic it is so wonderful to be able to virtually visit a store and on her website you can literally do that! Check it out, it's super cool!
Janine's Jewelry Design is on Instagram and Facebook! She also has a VIP Facebook group where she posts first looks at her newest jewelry pieces, hosts polls, and gives access to giveaways and coupons!
