In 2011, before BFFs Kelly Stuart and Violet Gaynor had kids of their own, they launched The Glow — a glimpse into the world of inspiring, stylish moms. Swoon with us as we thumb through the archives in preparation for their next venture: an equally addictive book that'll feel right at home on your coffee table.
Though born and raised in California, Jennifer Fisher is a true New Yorker at heart. The fashion stylist-turned-CFDA-nominated jewelry designer has most certainly earned her badass spirit: At just 27, she was diagnosed with an estrogen-driven tumor and told she would have to undergo chemotherapy and may never be able to carry a child. Fisher and her husband tried unsuccessfully for years to conceive via surrogacy and IVF.
After taking a break from trying, she became pregnant naturally. Shane, a healthy baby boy, was born in March 2005. Then, just six months later, Fisher found out she was pregnant again. As a new mom, she was eager to find jewelry she could wear to represent her children, while also staying true to her edgy style, so she created her very own letter-stamped necklaces. Friends took notice and soon, orders from major retailers started pouring in.
