It’s always inspiring to see a lady on her grind. One of the ladies I’ve been watching grow and develop is Kymberli, an entrepreneur who found an opportunity to start her business out of necessity. She owns a company, My ArBelle, which produces beautiful tree decors that can be used to organize jewelry and be centerpieces at weddings. See some of the amazing pieces and read what inspired Kym to create MyArBelle…
What inspired you to create My ArBelle?
My ArBelle began as a product of necessity. I desperately needed a tangle- free way to organize my massive jewelry collection. Inspired by a wedding branch centerpiece, I created my first jewelry tree, fell in love with it and decided to make a business out of it. I combined the Spanish word for tree “Arbol” and the French word for beautiful “Belle” and came up with My ArBelle “My beautiful Tree”. Soon after My ArBelle literally ‘branched out’ (ha ha) into a multifunctional product that not only beautifully organizes jewelry but also adds a unique element to some of the most memorable events in a person’s life via the Wish Tree, my most popular product. With tree sales all over the US in such a short time, I expect to take My ArBelle international very soon! Stay tuned!
