Jessica Herrin: Founder, Stella and Dot

Jessica Herrin: Founder, Stella and Dot

A Great, JEWELRY GIVEAWAY and List of San Francisco Faves

ELAINE SAYS: This isn't the first time I've written about the social selling phe-nom, Stella & Dot. I'm profoundly impressed by the innovation of CEO & Founder, Jessica Herrin [the she-nom behind the phe-nom], who gave the jewelry market quite a makeover. While the model is as old as Tupperware, her boutique-style, in-home trunk shows are totally fresh, combining on-trend styles at budget-friendly prices, with exclusive lines created by upscale designers like, Maya Brenner. Jessica, like so many of us, must have been perplexed by the incredible numbers of charismatic, smart, hard-working, savvy young moms that walked away from careers when they had children, in search of balance. I've had hundreds of these conversations....what can we do, how can we make a few extra dollars, how can I challenge myself and get back out there without sacrificing time with my kids? Well, uniquely poised with the network and know-how, Jessica Herrin did something about it. She is clearly no stranger to style or great ideas, so who better to show us around SAN FRANCISCO and turn us on to a bunch of great, new SF finds that we can access from anywhere. Let's do it, Jessica....I'm going anywhere you're taking me! *****PS: ENTER TO WIN A FABULOUS WARDROBE OF 3 S&D NECKLACES BY MAYA BRENNER, COURTESY OF JESSICA. CLICK HERE FOR CONTEST DETAILS
