Meet the Founder

Following that dream since 2010 . . . 

Jennifer Ciraulo Blooming Lotus Jewelry Founder follow that dream sign tulum

Hi there!  Jenn here!  I'm the one who makes all of your jewels and writes those little notes you find in your packages.  Thanks for stopping by and wanting to know a little bit about how I ventured down this road that I never even thought I'd be on.  What a journey it's been :)

My background is not in jewelry at all, not in fashion, or design, or marketing, none of that!  Business classes?  Not one.  Desire to be a business owner?  Nope, never crossed my mind.  So how did I get here?  Sometimes I sit and ponder that question myself. 

Long story short, Blooming Lotus Jewelry took its roots back in 2010 while I was working as a pediatric Occupational Therapist with children with special needs.  My coworker asked if I'd make her bridal jewelry, knowing I'd dabbled here and there with beading.  It was at that moment, a little seed was planted.  That little seed changed the course of my life.  Wedding jewelry bloomed into more meaningful intentional jewelry, inspired by my yoga practice and mother nature.  I began incorporating meaningful gemstones, hand-stamped mantras and hand-knotted malas.  The response I received from my customers and within myself was different and I knew I found my niche.  I have loved spreading smiles all over the world ever since.

I resigned in 2013 from being an Occupational Therapist to see where I could take Blooming Lotus Jewelry.  I adore children and of course still have a strong desire support those with special needs.  A percentage of all sales are donated to Support the Kid for Cancer.  

When I'm not carving pendants or rings, hand-knotting malas and stamping mantras, I'm a lover of yoga, travel, laughter and pitaya bowls.

I'm proud to say that Blooming Lotus Jewelry has made it to the cover of several yoga publications including Yoga Journal, Om Yoga & Lifestyle, and Yoga Magazine.  We've been featured in several magazines including Yoga Journal, Health Magazine, Chalkboard Magazine, Bella Magazine and Cameron Diaz's The Body Book blog.
