Today we’d like to introduce you to Karen Perez.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I welcome you with open arms to the place where I share a piece of my heart. I hope you enjoy what you see and make this part of your world. I am from a small city right next to Houston, Texas. I am excited to share my ideas, talents, and designs with every single beauty out there. I believe we all as women have a fire inside of us that is ready to shine. Yes, we face struggles, challenges and maybe rejection, however, I believe if we share the goodness we all have, we can make other lives a better world. Jewelry has always been a part of my life ever since I was a little girl. I was always your fashionista. It made me feel good inside and out just by rocking some gorgeous jewelry. I decided I couldn’t keep that just there and had to take the initiative to make something wonderful for other beautiful souls. I thank God for guiding me every step of the way and I am passionate to reach out to all the brilliant souls beginning from deep within.
Jewelry expresses our beauty deep inside of us without having to say much. No matter what outfit you are wearing, by adding some sparkling jewels you will be able to conquer your day. Just let your light shine from deep within.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Life has not always been smooth for me, but I have learned from every situation. I thank God that everything wasn’t handed to me because I feel I wouldn’t have been able to help others who may be going through similar situations. I have learned that sometimes you cannot change the situations, but how you react to it is what makes a difference. To all my beautiful young ladies, keep believing in your dreams and work hard to make them turn into reality. Even if at times no one will believe in you, keep believing in what makes your heart happy.
what should we know about Blingwithin Jewelry? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I enjoy bringing out different designs of earrings to our beauties. Blingwithin doesn’t just focus on one particular design or style, however, it is for all women. Whether they like rhinestones, diamonds, tassels or soutache all of our gorgeous pieces bring out a unique statement to any outfit. You may not always want to dress up but with some stunning earrings, it will definitely leave a statement. Many of our designs come from different places like Venezuela, Mexico and more and are handmade with so many details.
Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
Sometimes, you are your greatest mentor, I myself learned as I went and learned from what didn’t work the first time to improving to working the second time. Always striving to be better and willing to learn more.
