On January 12, 2016, Holley Rothell Kitchen passed away after a long battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Today, October 18th, is our inaugural Holley Day, a day of giving that Kendra Scott dedicates to her dear friend Holley. In her honor, we are continuing her mission to educate and raise awareness for Metastatic disease by donating $100,000 to METAvivor. Read on to hear from Kendra herself about Holley’s story, their friendship, and Kendra’s passion for giving back to this cause.
There is a reason they say this is the most magical time of your life…
I see the world through the eyes of a jewelry designer. My love of this craft and natural gemstones inspires all that I do. I chose the name “Facets” for our blog because I wanted a place to tell the full story of my brand – every facet. This space is designed for you, to give you a personal, behind-the-scenes look at who we are.
Excuse us while we spend a few moments gushing about our fabulous CEO. A rockstar businesswoman and designer, a loving mother, and a passionate philanthropist, she built the Kendra Scott brand from a startup in her spare bedroom into a multi-million dollar company. We asked her a few questions so you can get to know and love her as well!
For me, our core value of Philanthropy started with three simple words my stepfather Rob once spoke to me during his battle with brain cancer: “You Do Good.” He always taught me that the most important thing in life was to use your talents to better the lives of others. That is where my dedication to philanthropy really began, and philanthropy has now become a hallmark of the Kendra Scott culture.
Inspired by the natural beauty of gemstones and unique treatments applied to her jewelry designs, Kendra Scott invites you to add the finishing touch to your style with her new collection of gem inspired nail lacquer. From natural stone colors like Rose Quartz and Platinum Drusy to the shine and shimmer of our transformative Cool and Warm Iridescent coats, consider this collection your next must-have accessory.
“As a designer who has always had a love of natural gemstones, I created my line of Nail Lacquer to be an extension of my jewelry, inspired by the same beautiful stones and colorful hues. I hope you love it as much as I do!” XO- Kendra
