Jillian developed a passion for all shiny objects from a young age while exploring her Mother’s jewelry collection, excited with any opportunity to wear these sparkling objects. Although she grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, she always had big city ambition. While attending the University of Pittsburgh, from where she received her bachelor’s degree in International Business and Marketing, she had the opportunity to study abroad in Barcelona. A city known for its rich artistic community and architectural history, she made exploring the fashion scene a top priority and began to build an extensive collection of European clothing and accessories.
To this day, the more extensively she travels, Jillian makes sure to support the local artists buy collecting culturally inspired jewelry pieces. Doing so simultaneously prevents her suitcases from overflowing, ripping, or going over the weight limit.
