What is the best part of being a working mom and most challenging part of juggling two full-time jobs?
The best part of being a working mom is setting an example for my children building this business, but the best part is seeing them at the end of my day! All mothers know you just adapt to your given situation. We have no choice to not show up so you just get it done and do your best! None of us are perfect!
How do you carve out “me” time? And how do you like to spend this time?
I honestly use cooking as my ME time since I rarely have any time to myself unless traveling for work…Cooking fully relaxes me. Also oddly airplane time and Europe for work counts as quality time...

How did becoming a mom inspire or influence Jennifer Fisher Jewelry?
The story is very long..but after years of trying to conceive via a surrogate and after undergoing chemotherapy for a desmoid tumor in my chest, I ended up conceiving naturally after years of failed attempts of IVF and surrogacy. When Shane was born naturally and healthy, I was given small trinkets with his single initial that were just too delicate for my taste, so I went and designed my own. A simple heavy gold dog tag charm with his full name on it. I was a wardrobe stylist at the time and I would wear it on set on a long heavy link gold chain and I was stopped constantly by people asking what it said….then I started making them for friends and family and BOOM, the line was born. I started a website selling customizable fine jewelry, mainly charm necklaces. Who knew there were millions of other women looking for the exact same thing I was. Something different that no one else would have with more of a sense of style and heirloom quality representing your family and things you love.
Which jewelry piece are you most excited by in your collection and why?
Still to this day my customizable charm necklaces and diamond burnished equation and name cuffs. They, to this day, are our bestsellers!
