Collette: Tell us a little about your background and how Hephzi Creations was born.
Angela: My passion and experience has caused me to birth my own business called, “Hephzi (pronounced hĕf'zĭ) Creations.” Before starting Hephzi I fell in love with the business world of finance and accounting and became a successful Tax Account Manager with ADP a Fortune 500 company here in the U.S, as well as becoming the CFO of “A Company of Women.” This powerful nonprofit organization passionately supports and celebrates women.
Since the birth of my business women all around the world have been fallen in love with Hephzi Creations. I am excited about Hephzi’s future and the women, whose lives will be powerfully and sweetly impacted by my jewelry and accessories.
Collette: What inspires you?
Angela: What inspires me? Women -- women of every age, every creed, every background!
I truly love vintage because of the rarity and the quality that you can find in made-in-the-USA products, thus representing how I see women. I started with raw materials and re-purposed vintage jewelry. I make pieces by hand. Each piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind. I am passionate about creating each and every delicate decoration as a priceless jewel to be worn with pride and honor.
Collette: I love that you can wear one of your bracelets in several different ways to customize your look! I see that you also make more than just jewelry....
Angela: Every bracelet I make comes with an extension that is elastic that can turn the bracelet into a necklace or headband. They also can be worn around the brim of summer hats which looks amazing!
I also make sets, purses, and other fun items like this Vintage Bowling Ball Bag Purse. So whatever a woman's preference of style -- vintage, classic, sophisticated, retro, glitzy glam, minimalist, earthy, whimsical, kitschy, cutesy -- Hephzi has your one of kind creation!
