Neely Phelan, the owner and designer behind the eponymous jewelry line
HER HOOD: “Within the last year we moved back to Little Rock from Orlando and currently live in Pleasant Valley.”
HOMEWORK: “Being a multi-tasking working mom, I often find myself working at my dining room table, kitchen bar, or in the family room. I always have a candle burning and a vase of fresh flowers. I currently have the Voluspa ‘Laguna’ scent going. In addition, you can often find a random Netflix drama series playing in the background.”
HER “ROOMMATES”: Neely lives with her husband, Patrick, their three sons Emerson (7), Pierce (10), and Noah (12), and their Double Doodle, Winston.
HER PASSION: “I started designing jewelry as a hobby while working for an advertising firm in 2002. Shortly after, I became a designer for Dillard’s for a few years before having my first child. Soon after that, I left and started designing my own line of jewelry.”
WHAT SHE’S WEARING: A gold cuff and black acrylic hoop earrings with delicate flower accents. Both are from her Summer/Pre-Fall 2018 collection. “They are definitely statement pieces.”
Shop Local: You can purchase Neely’s line of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets locally at Tulips and Beyond Cotton II, both in Little Rock.
