Live: Austin, TX

I was born…

in Kenosha, Wisconsin

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The beautiful, scenic landscape.  As a jewelry designer, it is so inspiring!

I’m listening to…

Being an Austinite, I have become a bit of a music maven, so my playlists are always a mix of different genres.  From classic country like Willie Nelson, top 40’s artists like Adele and rock bands like Arcade Fire, I love so many types of music and almost always have it playing.

My family…

is my world.  They are my rock, my inspiration and my motivation each and every day.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Audrey Hepburn – Audrey epitomizes class and elegance.  Not only was she an iconic beauty and actress during her time but she was also a great humanitarian as the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF.  In my life and business, I have always strived to be both a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, and she balanced these both beautifully.

One thing I cannot live without…

my two precious sons…they are my world!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

Anyone involved in the fashion scene.  My Aunt Jo was a fabulous woman who worked as a buyer for a major department store and she was always such a huge inspiration to me!

I’m inspired by…

my travels.  Last summer, I spent a lot of time in Bali, and I was inspired by everything, from the incredible people to the beautiful landscape and architecture.  So inspired, in fact, that I created an entire line, my Summer 2013 Collection, based on my travel experience there and it is absolutely gorgeous!

The one person who motivates me is…

My mother.  She is such a strong, incredible person and is my number one cheerleader.  She has helped make me the woman I am today.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

That every child could have a family.  As I said, my boys are the center of my world and motherhood has changed and shaped my life more than anything.  It truly breaks my heart that there are so many children in the world who don’t have that.

The perfect day would be…

Well Italy is my absolute favorite place on earth and my sons are my favorite people to be with.  So a day in Italy with them would be perfect. 

My first job was…

I opened a hat boutique called The Hat Box whose proceeds went to cancer research when I was 19-years-old and ran that for a while.

My favorite escape…

Italy.

My life…

is beyond my wildest dreams!  I consider it such a blessing to get to do what I love everyday!

I’m currently working on…

In business – continuing to open Kendra Scott boutiques in amazing cities across the nation such as Scottsdale.  In my personal life – my number one resolution this year is to embrace the wonderful, positive and loving people in my life.

Always…

lend a helping hand and don’t be afraid to ask others for help as well!

Never…

Let negative people bring you or your dreams down.

Favorite Quote…

My personal quote as well as company motto is “dream it, live it, love it!” This was the basis for my business from the beginning. I dreamt of becoming a jewelry designer, then decided to live out my dream and now I absolutely love it! It is so important to focus on something you are passionate about. It is the only key to happiness and success.

Biggest Dream…

Becoming a good mother, and as I watch my boys grow everyday, I see that my dream have come true and continue to each day.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Negativity.  Just like a positive attitude is contagious, so is a negative one and a tiny spark of it can light a fire.
