OUR STORY

Hi there! 
My name is Taylor, and I am the Founder of ROX Jewelry Shop.  (I'm also the one making the duck-face in the photo to your left, sorry not sorry) Thank you so much for taking the time to visit this page and learn a little more about who we are and why we do what we do.
A little bit about myself and ROX:
After getting my degree in Geology from the University of Texas at Austin, I worked for a few years in the corporate world as a geologist.  Doing that I felt like a little piece of me faded away every day— I was working long hours doing something that I realized I had no passion for.  I didn't feel like I was making a positive impact on the world, there was little opportunity for creative expression, and there were no women in management or leadership roles for me to look up to. The purpose of me telling you this is not to cast stones nor to condemn my old employer, but to explain that the job was not my path. One day, I woke up with the realization that if I didn't leave soon, I could wake up in 30 years and still be unhappy, wondering "what if". So, I started saving any extra money I could, and on March 24, 2017 I left that job to pursue a career that I would be passionate about.
The day I quit, I went back to my apartment and started brainstorming about how I could build a company that...
1) Could change the world for the better and help a lot of people
2) Could incorporate the creative, fashion-loving side side of me
3) And could play to my education as a geologist

That’s when ROX was born.  The idea was simple: 
Make beautiful, natural jewelry out of high quality materials and give back to a different charitable organization every month.  
  • On April 24, 2017 ROX launched on Etsy
  • On May 15, 2017 ROX became ROX Jewelry LLC 
  • On May 18, 2017 ROX became available on Retailite.com
  • On June  4, 2017 ROX launched it's website
Now this was just an idea I had. I'm human; in no way could have done all of this alone. This idea would have never progressed into the company it is today without the help of many people. I'd like to thank my family, friends, collaborators, and the hard working team at ROX.  You have given myself and our company the greatest gift of all: your support. 
To our customers:
Thank you so much for the good you are doing for the world.  $5 can mean so many different things to so many different people.  It can mean meals for a hungry child, or vaccinations in third world countries, potable water, therapy for those in need, and so much more.  Please spread the word and help us help others. You are the most integral piece in our mission, and we want you to know how amazing your support is to us.
At the end of the day, we measure our success not by the profit we've made, not by the likes we've gotten, but by the lives we've impacted.  
 
Sincerely,
