Origami Owl's story starts with a teenager and a dream. This
company was founded by 14 year-old Isabella in the fall of 2010. Fueled
by a goal to raise enough money to buy a car for her 16th birthday, she
started the business with $350 worth of babysitting money and a matched
contribution from her parents. She sold her unique line of personalized
jewelry at home parties and events and quickly realized that this brand
has an energy all its own. People absolutely love creating and wearing
personalized jewelry that has meaning and is special to them.
Owl's signature jewelry collections are available online and through
trained Independent Designers, who sell products exclusively at home
parties and events-just as Isabella did from the very beginning! Our
parties are a fun way to bring together a group of friends for a unique,
memorable and highly personalized experience.
Owl is strongly united in the core belief that: if you can dream it,
you can do it. Whether you aspire to raise money to further your
education, buy your first home or go on a dream vacation-it's all
possible with hard work and dedication.
I had the opportunity to interview Jennifer Hudnet an Independent Designer for Origami Owl:
- How/when did you first hear about Origami Owl?
first heard of Origami Owl after doing some research on my own. I was
looking for a unique opportunity to provide for my family while being a
stay at home mom. So, I googled new direct sales companies, as I had
been in direct sales since I was 20. Origami Owl was at the top of the
list. I read the story, and knew just then I had to be a part of this
- Do you have a favorite jewelry item from Origami Owl that you wear all of the time?
have many signature pieces that I wear on a regular basis. The first
is my living lockets. I love that you can create multiple looks
everyday by changing the charms. I can match my outfit or tell my
life's story, or even make a memory locket of a lost loved one. I wear 2
lockets, which is easy to do because we have different fashion chains
to chose from and each have a different length. Lastly, is my wish
locket. This is one of our newest assets to our line. Inside is a cute
message, and on the back is a place to write a wish. I keep it near
and dear to me, as my wish is to change as many lives as I can through
the love of Origami Owl.
- How did you become an exclusive designer for Origami Owl?
a designer was the best decision of my life. I emailed Origami Owl's
nest (home office) - as they are still very small, to find a designer to
sign under. They put me in contact with my mentor and I met her and
signed up that night. Anyone can become a designer, as the companies
message is to share the opportunity and bless others lives. And I have
to say I have been blessed beyond measure. This company is beyond
amazing and so supportive. I am happy to be a part of my owl family.
