Bella started Origami Owl with $350 and a simple dream in mind—getting a car on her 16th birthday. When she was 14, she asked her parents for a car but they said she needed to work for it. So, with all of her babysitting money and her family’s support, she set out to start her own business and created Origami Owl.

Immediately, people loved creating stories with jewelry and women began asking how they could share Origami Owl with their own family and friends. They were a hit! After hearing stories about how their jewelry touched lives, it only made sense to spread some love across the country. Today, Origami Owl has more than 60,000 Independent Designers who pursue their own dreams by selling O2 jewelry at home parties we like to call Jewelry Bars.

But there is something else she wants you to know, we’ve always been so much more than just a jewelry company. From the beginning she wanted her company to be different, she wanted it to be a force for good; to help others achieve their dreams like she achieved hers (yes, she finally got her car; a white Jeep she named Alice). It didn’t happen overnight, but with lots of hard work, Origami Owl grew from her after school job to a multimillion dollar company.

It’s been such an incredible journey and she believes their continued success has come from their intention to make a difference in people’s lives, they never put profits before people. Their story is only just beginning to unfold and she hopes it can be a part of your story too.

Origami Owl Team Krewe of Believe

My Story~ I am a SAHM mom to 4 beautiful girls ages (17, 10, 7, 5). We are a competitive dance/gymnastics/music family! I enjoy photography & traveling. In December of 2011, my Cousin, Angelle Booc (a STL on my team now), introduced me to Origami Owl. After much thought & prayer, I Joined O2 on January 20, 2012 & never looked back. I had just enough Designers join O2 before the freeze in March of 2012, I Promoted to LD in April 2012. The freeze opened in June of 2012 and I was Promoted to TL in July 2012. In September 2012, I walked across the stage at the Nest as a Team Leader (as well as a few other awards). I had 3 of my sister designers there with me. I was/am so proud! I then Promoted to STL ~ October 2012; Promoted to ETL ~ April 2013 and Director ~ November 2015...... I have 200+ designers on my team(all around the world), 23 on my front line, with 1 ETL, 2 STL's and 2 TL. They are all working very hard and so close to promoting themselves. My oldest travels with me & we were able to walk across the stage in Phoenix as a mother/daughter team & she an Owlette. All of my girls help me from setting up my events/home parties, or being my models. We are a team(including my husband)! Our three youngest are gymnast so we travel a lot. Yet O2 has been a great success. It really sells itself... O2 gives me the flexibility I need to be available for my girls and provide extra income so they can do what they love! It is Awesome!!!!

If you would like to join our team please feel free to contact me. I will put you in contact with the closest designer in your area.
