“Life is so serious. If we can lighten the air and bring happiness into people's lives, then we've succeeded.”

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 operates out of a 3,000-square-foot loft in downtown Apex, where her team creates and sells colorful jewelry and accessories with one mission—to make people happy. Locations in downtown Raleigh, Cameron Village and even Crabtree Valley Mall make the shopping experience all the more accessible.
