Self-taught jewelry designer, Kerri Jones, grew up in Del Mar. As a teenager, days were spent at the beach dreaming of fashion. A career in the industry resulted from these beachside daydreams, and Kerri built her career working as a fashion retail merchandiser, photo stylist and manager for over 10 years. Kerri eventually decided to stay home to start a family, but it wasn’t long (and only natural) before fashion and business started to work their way back into her life. At the time that her children began attending elementary school, TenThings Jewelry was born. A collection of handmade, bohemian jewelry and clothing inspired by the Southern California coastal lifestyle, TenThings Jewelry is now proudly sold at boutiques from coast to coast, including Bliss 101 in Encinitas.
As a wife and mother of two teenagers and and an assortment animals, Kerri still spends weekends at the beach, and her blissful days continue to be spent dreaming of fashion, practicing yoga, eating vegetarian burritos and creating pretty things.
