Let's be real — most people wouldn't see getting fired as a fortuitous moment in their career. But, for the sisters behind cult jewelry brand Dannijo, it's a different story. When Jodie and Danielle Snyder were let go from their respective fashion-industry gigs, the two finally took the leap to start their own jewelry line (something they'd shown a passion for since childhood), and boy, did it pay off. Dannijo's bohemian-chic designs garnered a loyal following that would come to include the likes of Beyoncé, Natalie Portman, and Blake Lively.
