Kelly Shatat's jewelry-making started as a hobby on her couch, but it didn't take long to bloom into a full-scale business. And not just any business; it's one that's helped put Raleigh, N.C., on the map among fashion-lovers. Today, her company Moon and Lola creates colorful jewelry and accessories with one mission—to make people happy.
To Kelly, a pharmacist by trade, witnessing the way that people reacted to her creations was eye-opening. Realizing that something as simple as a piece of jewelry could make a person's day, Kelly decided it was time to leave the pharmacy world behind and start focusing on bringing more joy into peoples' lives. It was an idea that took off quickly. Her fun-loving brand has been featured in publications nationwide and is honored to have been on Oprah's Favorite Things list more than once.
“Life is so serious. If we can lighten the air and bring happiness into people's lives, then we've succeeded.”
