Our Story

Hello Friends!

I’m Naseem. In 2021 I left a full time corporate job to explore a more intentional way of living. A way that celebrates creativity and the beauty around us. Named after a song that inspires my creativity, And She Was is a place for those who are looking to slow down and feel more connected.

I’ve always been moved and inspired by art and artists. I’m excited to bring to you a curated collection of unique jewelry and accessories. I specifically seek out independent artists and makers who are from diverse backgrounds, producing work in small batches and pursuing their creative dreams.

When I hear a song or experience artwork in a gallery, I think about the artist: Where were they? How were they feeling and what they were trying to convey? … I begin to feel transported, inspired, more connected, and with a broader view of the world. I hope you feel the same way, when interacting with the beautiful pieces from our shop.  

Here at And She Was you’ll find handmade objects, stories and artists that will inspire you. Join me in celebrating artists and objects that bring more creativity, connection, beauty and intention to the everyday.
