How did you create Vida Kush? What purpose does it serve?

I started VidaKush at the end of college. My mom is also a jeweler and I’ve grown up with jewelry all my life. She had given me a bag of unused of beads, gems, and stones and I just let my creativity take it from there. I started to experiment and try out different designs and found out I really enjoyed jewelry making. The purpose that it serves is to provide quality and innovative pieces that no one has seen before. It’s a great creative outlet to start trends, expand trends, and inspire other girls to follow their own style and take risks.
