Jewelry is an important fashion and style accessory. With jewelry, we can communicate many different things about ourselves including our personality. It's not always about the flashiness of big name brands, but about wearing pieces that reflect and fit you.
Creative entrepreneur Alana Little and her business, Make Pie Not War, has brought this personalized feel to jewelry through her unique designs and collections.
Make Pie Not War was started 13 years ago when Alana decided she had seen enough of the corporate world, and wanted to do something on her own instead. Having studied Fashion Design alongside Accounting, she quickly realized her dream of using her creative mind to make jewelry.
Since then, she's been featured in Lucky Magazine and taken part in Fashion Week in NYC! Her success in jewelry making is due to the unique design, quality, and art-like feel of her collections. The goal with Make Pie Not War is to create long lasting, functional jewelry of good material, that her customers can feel suits them. It also contains a blend of contemporary and traditional styles,
Another thing that sets Make Pie Not War apart from the rest is Alana's passion for her work. She makes everything by hand, and is very particular about the materials she uses. It's truly custom and personal jewelry, which is something you won't find at big name jewelry stores.
In addition to her jewelry, Alana is passionate about Fresno. She mentioned how much she loves living here, and is always promoting Fresno during all her trips across the country for shows and meetings! It's all about being proud of where you live, and all the things that make it great.
She also has a passion for helping creative entrepreneurs. It's a tough world out there for those looking to build a business around their creative work, but she loves to provide encouragement and assistance.
On top of that, she also has a podcast called Blueberry Jam.
Alana has quite a few passions and a busy schedule, but her passion shows through in each one of them. The mark of a true entrepreneur!
