Meet Roz Harris, of Chic’d Out Designs.
Born in the Magnolia State and raised in Utah, this super stylish go-getter came back to the Magnolia State and has developed a booming Mississippi jewelry design business. Her pieces are in-demand with boutiques all over the state. She also offers online sales direct to the customer. We caught up with Roz to ask her about her inspiration and style.
Roz Harris: I started off as a hobby but decided to turn this hobby into a full fledged business in 2018.
RH: I was born in Mississippi but my mom moved to Utah when I was 5 and I was raised there. When I turned 26 I moved to back Mississippi in search of a husband.
RH: I learned my craft from lots of trial and error. I studied, researched, and took chances by playing with tons of material.
RH: Everything inspires my style. Shapes, textures, words, people, and nature. I choose my material based on whether it can be reshaped, cut, painted, folded, molded, etc.
RH: Develop your style then reinvent it into your brand. Always be inspired and never be a copier. Educate yourself by following those who are successful designers. Test your product before you list it. Take good clear photos that aren’t edited or filtered. Reach out to other designers who inspire you to get some advice.
RH: My best tip I can give on wearing my jewelry is: Simple outfit, bold jewelry; Bold outfit, simple jewelry.
RH: You can always shop 24/7 on my website at chicdoutdesigns.com, or in-store at lots of boutiques throughout Mississippi.
