Name: Carrie Grabowicz, Melia Rios-Lazo, Clare Herkendaal, Barbara Kosciewicz, and Danielle Weber
Company Name:


January 2009

none, although we are looking for equal partners in the area where we service

We offer all our services a la carte, as well as having one large ultimate package which includes the highest packages from each of our businesses. We also offer an incentive to have clients book with more than one of us: If Brides book with one, they get 5% off second, 8% off next and 10% off, the next.

Serving areas:
Eastern PA (mostly in Chester and Montgomery Counties in PA)
Services offered:
Custom jewelry consultations for you and your bridal party, one-of-a-kind photography, pampering sessions with massage, yoga, and foot soaks, make-up color consultations, skin care, and honeymoon travel packages. We love to make everything CUSTOM to make the brides feel like Royalty! We also are partnered with several reception venues and salons in the area.
How did you get started creating jewelry?
It all started in July 2008 with a trip to the Outer Banks, NC. Hammi Jammi Jewelry owner/designer Carrie Grabowicz created her first necklace in a bead shop. She fell in love with the creative process and the rest is history. Hammi Jammi is a name she calls her children when they are acting like “hams” and she also loves pigs so the name is fitting for fun, everyday jewelry.

How long have you been doing it?
Since July 2008

Describe your style:
I tend to like simple pieces, mostly using sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones. I also love to find unique focal pieces. Lately, I really like to work with Swarovski Crystals (which works well for the bridal market).

Do you do have any other jobs?
I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 boys (Brennon-age 6; Noah-age 2). All of the members are stay-at-home moms who each had our own individual businesses. We thought it was a natural fit to join forces and target the bridal market together.

What else would you be doing if you were not a jewelry designer?
I have a Master's degree in Public Health. Before having children I worked as a Clinical Research Coordinator for the Division of Orthopedics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. I would most likely still be doing that.

What is something that few people know about you?
???? I have no idea...I'm pretty much an open book!
Do you have any advice to offer engaged couples or those planning a special event? Just have fun with it and try not to get stressedout. By using a WEDDING in a BOX, we take a lot of the stress out of planning by offering so many services in one place.
Would you like to say anything about your friends at Creative Custom Card Boxes? These boxes are beautiful. They just add that special touch to your event. It's the little details that make the wedding and reception look special and cohesive.

Have anything else to share with our readers?
We like to set up mini bridal shows for our brides and their friends so we can present all our services in a laid back setting. They can try on jewelry, do a foot soak, have a chair massage, and get some photos taken of the fun event, and even have some chocolate fondue at no obligation.
