In 2002, Haley sold her first pieces to some fashionable ladies at a law firm, where she worked part time in high school. Customers began hosting jewelry trunk shows for her friends, and local boutiques and salons began carrying her line. She continued running her successful jewelry business from high school and into college. Graduating from the University of South Carolina, Haley majored in International Business and marketing and minored in Spanish. Haley was very involved in the Darla Moore School of Business and was instrumental in starting the USC Entrepreneurship Club. During her senior year at USC, Haley won acceptance into the USC Technology Incubator and received start up capital, rent-free office space, and other beneficial business tools.
Continuing her business full time after college, Haley decided to expand her jewelry line out West to Colorado. Haley packed up shop and moved to Vail and then on to Denver, where she lived for almost four years. She sold her jewelry in luxury hotels and resorts, home shows, and art markets across the state. After realizing her life was shifting back to the East Coast, Haley relocated back to her roots in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., where she now resides.
