Kendra Scott had many dreams of making a company and spreading it across the United states sharing her creations. “I have always loved fashion, and I was lucky enough to have a family that supported my entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. When I opened my very first business, the Hat Box, at age 19, my family stood behind me and let me follow my dream — even though it didn’t turn out quite as I’d hoped. I ultimately had to close the doors to that business, but the entrepreneur in me was nowhere close to finished. It wasn’t until 2002 when I was pregnant with my first son that I realized I wanted to turn my love of jewelry into a business. And when I saw an opportunity in the industry to create beautiful gemstone designs at an attainable price, I seized it.” says Kendra
