West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
HarpersLove was completely self-funded and founded by NJ working mother and businesswoman, Michelle Mullman. Like many working parents, Michelle struggled with work-life balance after returning to work post maternity leave from her second child. Her father-in-law, a jewelry professional of over 30 years, thought she had a good idea with online custom jewelry and then introduced her to several of his contacts. From there, the idea became a reality and the website design and production was underway.
HarpersLove is a new online jewelry shopping experience where the customer is the designer. Customers can design their earrings by using the builder or they can select a pendant style and customize it. In addition, customers can shop from the Design Board and see what the HarpersLove community is creating.
Customers can personalize their jewelry with selections such as metal type, stone selection, stone type (color, cut, size) and accessory selections (chains, earring backing). All products are customized which can take 3-5 weeks for delivery and each order includes free shipping and 60 day risk free returns.
Michelle describes herself as a mommy-preneuer, believing that it is possible to launch a business and be at home to raise your children. In addition, she views launching her own business as a future lesson for her children, indicating that passion and hard work can yield the results that you want out of life. Her business philosophy is to put the customer at the center of the business model, which is a core value she learned working in World Service at American Express. She also has weaved philanthropy into both her professional and personal goals, which is a focus for HarpersLove.
Harperslove has a social presence via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, MySpace and a blog. Customers can also become members of the Harperslove community by signing up for an account at Harperslove.com. Members can receive special discounts and news on products, events and website changes.
HarpersLove plans to launch new products, designs and creative ways to shop jewelry in 2013. For more information about HarpersLove, visit their website, harperslove.com and become a member or connect to their social sites. New members receive $50 towards their first order.
