DistinQueJewelry – Seller Spotlight

Hello!  My name is Genie and I’m honored to be a Seller Spotlight on ArtFire!

DistinQueJewelry4

I am the owner of PinKixx Jewelry (aka DistinQueCo.), and I create Stylish Urban Jewelry for Confident Women and PANKs (Professional Aunts with No Kids) in our cozy Hollywood studio in California.

DistinQueJewelry is also known as PinKixx Jewelry

I’m a daughter of a voice actor and a sister of a nurse, a soldier, a photographer, and a hair dresser.  I’m a self-taught jewelry designer (I do take classes though), an entrepreneur, a writer, a musician, a mind-reader, a forever-learner, a laugher, a traveler, a foodie…oh, yeah, and a big time Pank.  I know. It’s a lot to be, right?

I’ve been an artist my whole life, and I love it!  In writing, designing, or playing instruments, I love to create something new and different – a change from the old.  My design is “Simple and Modern.”  Everything I design/make follows this motto.  If it’s a little off the wall, perfect!

All PinKixx’s Collections thrive for more modern and fresh designs to satisfy every evolving fashion and trend.  Our jewelry is renovating and hip but at the same time classy, so that they can be worn in casual or business settings, to formal events.  Perfect for stylish urban women.

As a brand, PinKixx Jewelry stands behind our beautifully designed jewelry with the strong guarantee in our products and affordable price.

DistinQue (distinctive and unique) Co.” was started in 2007, only after so many people commented that they loved what I wore of which I myself created when I couldn’t find the ones I wanted.  Leaf Jewelry was the first collections I ventured with, and I didn’t know anything about business at that time, so I didn’t realize that selling my jewelry $7 a piece was just barely covering the cost of the production.  My, my, my.  I have learned a lot since then.

After I officially launched PinKixx Jewelry in 2013 and have 4 collections (Nature, Modern, Geometric, and Tube) running simultaneously, I find myself still learning and understanding what a business is.  Designing, producing, photo shooting, listing, marketing, blogging…etc. etc.

It is a lot to learn and do, and it is an endless process that needs to be evolved constantly.  I attend jewelry making classes and also business webinars and coaching programs to help myself to be professionally one step ahead of anyone for my business.

I design PinKixx Jewelry with each PinKixx member in mind.  What do they need?  How can I make them feel awesome.  What would they want?  All these questions help me produce each of my creations.  Career women, Petite women, Single women, or whoever it’s going to be, I would like my PinKixx Jewelry to be out there as a sisterhood of women combining style with their success and happiness in life.

I enjoy interacting with customers.  They talk to me, and I listen.  To learn what people go through and to be able to help them and be a part of their dreams-come-true feeling is amazing to me every time.  A lot of our jewelry came to light because I listened to what they wanted.  Morse Jewelry is one of them (pictured below).

I’m also big on helping others and volunteering for local non-profit organizations (supporting especially, women and children).  Helping others and paying it forward are the most rewarding in my life.  At PinKixx, we create jewelry to help women-on-the-go feel confident and thrive everyday towards reaching their goals and making their dreams come true.  PANKs have lots of hats to wear everyday, just like I do.  I want them to be confident in whichever the role they’re playing.  Whatever they wear should express themselves and help them feel good, and it makes me feel good to hear “This is perfect!” with a big smile on our members’ faces.

That’s my favorite part of doing my work.  Seeing our members’ happiness!  It makes me giddy every time I receive their wonderful comments and reviews, enjoying our products and services.  You can see our PinKixxes’ Reviews and find out why they love PinKixx Jewelry!

Once you know PinKixx Jewelry, you’ll start to see our designs everywhere, on friends, in fashion blogs and magazines, and on celebrities and newsmakers around the country.

Our Cube Necklaces were featured our jewelry at Golden Globe GBK Gift Lounge in 2013.  We gifted our jewelry to TV shows, such as “Bones” “The Vampire Diaries” “The Originals” “Law and Order: SVU” “Scandal” “Rizzoli and Isles” “Parenthood” and more.  The latest one is airing our “Brass Diamond Earrings” at the end of March 2015 on the 206 episode of “the Night Shift” on NBC.  You can see more of PinKixx’s Press and Media here:

I love craft shows that let us see customers in person.  Ventura Artwalk is our regular show in summer. We do local charity events, community events, and school or church holiday boutiques.

I also go up close and personal with customers.  Around the holidays, we visit offices who invite us and show our jewelry at their holiday parties and donate the procedure to the non-profit organization they support.

My dream is that PinKixx will evolve to be the one stop shopping place for fashion for confident women and PANKs.  I can’t wait to show the handbags, clothes, and shoes I’m designing now.  At ArtFire, I’m not only showing retail items but also wholesale packages, and ArtFire is a great affordable site to show our creations, explore the ideas, and try out and improve our products.  ArtFire also has a great community of people helping each other, and you can literally see the admin working with the customers and sellers.  I’ve never seen better or faster communication between the sellers and the admin.

If you just started or are thinking about starting a business, ArtFire is a definite good start.  Just remember to be patient, focused, and consistent, and the most important thing is to believe in yourself.
