After winning CityVoter and Fox 8's Best Designer Jewelry award in 2007, the husband-and-wife team behind Fashion Jewelry Superstore continues to seek out the latest fashion trends and ways to offer designer-inspired pieces at affordable prices. Tanya Shephard travels the country handpicking jewelry and accessories to fill the cases and shelves within the 4,000-square-foot store that she and husband Todd own. They specialize in creating name-brand looks for less, such as Vera Bradley–inspired budget-friendly bags and backpacks, as seen in Mimi Vanderhaven magazine, and a collection of Venetian beads comparable to and compatible with Pandora jewelry.
In addition to purses, scarves, hats, belts, and fashion and costume jewelry, Tanya displays the talents of local jewelry makers with an in-house artisan boutique, which features “dozens of one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces.” Tanya and her team also set up consultations for wedding-accessory planning and private parties for a girls' shopping night or a troop of kangaroos looking to increase storage space with trendy shoulder bags.
