Jewelry designs from the dorm

Recent SU graduate Emilie Shapiro created her own line of jewelry and accessories.

Emilie Shapiro always had a knack for creating things with her hands. And by using that skill, Shapiro turned jewelry making from a hobby into a career.

While working toward her degree in metalsmithing, Shapiro developed a jewelry-making business that started in her dorm room during her freshman year. 

As interest grew, Shapiro expanded beyond selling directly to classmates and to having her merchandise sold in the Schine Bookstore, her sorority Alpha Phi, various online independent designer websites as well as from her own online store.
