Issue No. 24
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
Focus is a trait both entrepreneurs and mothers need to have in spades. That’s something jewelry artist Lorraine West knows first hand; she’s bootstrapped her line of fine jewelry since 1999 and became a mother to a bright and equally artistic little man in 2010. West’s client list boasts some of the biggest names in music, but to hear her tell it, it was becoming a mother that has given her the confidence she needs to take her line to the next level.
West spoke with mater mea about how she’s determined to expand her two lines of jewelry, thanks to the birth of her 2-year-old son, Solomon.
