A couple months ago I met Angel at a Lady Boss event and it just so happened that we won each other’s products. She was the lucky winner or a blog post feature and I was so thrilled to win a pair of her earrings. It was 100% not planned and just something that worked out so perfectly. Before this event I hadn’t heard of Ace & Company before so the introduction to a new local company was so excited. 

I love sharing about new companies that I discover and fall in love with. Angel is a super sweet hardworking momma who started up her business after being inspired by her son and showing him to follow his heart and set out to make his dreams come true. I love the beauty that each piece holds from the Ace & Company collection.

Ace & Company caters to individuals looking for effortlessly chic jewelry, every piece is created to represent individuals from all walks of life. Each piece is easy to pair with your everyday attire or out for your evening dates and arrangements. Learn for yourself about Angel and how far she has come since starting Ace & Company.

1. When was Ace & Company started and what motivated/inspired you to start your own jewelry line?

Ace & Company Designs launched in September of 2015. My motivation and constant inspiration has been my son. I really want my son to know that he can choose to be anything in this big world and that you should take a chance at your dreams. I know that the best way to teach something is to lead by example so I knew the moment I had him that I needed to take my own advice.

2. Where did your shop name come from?

Ace is the middle name of my son Valentino. When my husband and I were looking for baby names for boys we both fell in love with the name Ace, which means first in luck. Since my son is my inspiration it only seemed fitting that I named my company after him.

3. Choose two pieces from your collection to share a bit more on.

‘Jet Set’ earrings are one of our top sellers and a personal favorite as it can go with anything and everything. Classic enough to be worn to a wedding and simple enough to pair with jeans and a blazer.

J’adore‘ is a stretch bracelet composed of white howlite gemstones, accented with rose quartz chips from India and mini gold Swarovski pearls from Austria. This design is one of my favorites as it’s so simply romantic, which is why it’s called ‘J’adore’.

4. What makes Ace + Company unique?

Ace & Company Designs fuses together the small business charm with big retail business qualities. I inspect every material that goes into making my pieces to ensure that they reach high quality standards before I begin assembling them. I always make time daily to respond to comments and inquiries via social media and contact platforms.

All of my pieces listed online are ready to ship, there is no waiting for production time or a certain mail day. Once an item is purchased you will have your tracking within 24 hours. I feel these are the biggest company missions that demonstrate a perfect balance between small business charm and large retail expectations.

5. Which piece is your current best seller?

Ace & Company Designs current best seller is a tie between our ‘Modish’ bracelet of white howlite gemstones and our ‘Minimalist’ earrings of white howlite gemstone studs.

6. Share some goals/plans that you have for Ace + Company in the near or distant future?

One of my mission statements is to always be adding new products on a consistent basis so always check back monthly for a new item listed. I also recently began a blog on my website which I am planning on investing more time in to deliver content on cosmetics, fashion and home. Another big goal for the year is to expand to more countries. When the line was launched it was only available in Canada and now it has expanded to the United States.

7. What do you enjoy the most about having your own  business?

I enjoy the freedom and flexibility. There are days when I choose to start work at 9am and then others at 11pm. It allows me to prioritize being a mother first, as well as leave time for me to pursue my other passion of photography.

9. If you could share one piece of advice for someone starting out what would you say?

Just take the leap, and don’t be afraid. If you have a dream, a vision, a passion then you owe it yourself to give it a try. It’s important to remember that being afraid of failure is normal, but instead of using that feeling as a deterrent, use it as fuel to begin your new journey.

  • When you aren't wearing make up how do you feel? Honestly, does it feel good and fresh or do you feel like you aren't put together? A few weeks ago I picked up my daughter from preschool and was feeling insecure about the fact that I wasn't wearing makeup, I wondered what other moms were going to think. As the thought passed through my mind I had a laugh that I even dwelled on it. I reminded myself that I don't care what others think of me. I'm confident in who I am and some days I just don't have time for makeup.
