My name is Ginger Herbein. I'm the Founder and Creative Director of Sincerely Ginger Jewelry. Ever since I was young I had a secret desire inside of me to own a business. I never knew exactly what I wanted to do, or could do for that matter. It took close to thirty years to figure out.
Through a chain of events, I was able to step down as a teacher. Being a teacher is what I'd wanted to do since I was little, but the ever-changing world of education left me very unhappy. However, what remained inside of me was the desire to bring joy into the lives of others. I've always been a giver. This is one of the many reasons Christmas is my favorite holiday...because I love to see everyone's face light up when I give a gift. As I reflected on changing my path in life, I found myself thinking about how I used to love going through my grandmother's jewelry box. I remembered being in awe, often asking myself how someone could make such pieces, as I played dress up. Something I'd totally forgot was that I pretended to own a business when I was little...and it happened to be a jewelry business! I was given a mini jewelry kit where I would glue parts and pieces together. My parents sure loved me when I made holes in the wall, hanging my jewelry up on the paper cards I created!
Upon reflecting on these wonders I had as a child, thus began my journey in discovering the entire process of creating a real piece of jewelry. In doing so I discovered my passion. To be honest, in some ways it makes me feel like a kid again. I used to figure skate, and I always loved being able to do something unique that not many other people could do. Not to mention, the feeling I got when I finished a perfect routine and saw everyone smiling. It is kind of the same when I am able to sing in front of people...it is less about me, but hearing the people afterward about how a song touched them in some way. Creating a piece of jewelry is no different for me. It is a joy to see the person on the other end go "wow" as they have a priceless look of gratitude. That is what I love!
The name of my brand came to me quite easily, in fact years ago. When I'd sign a card or give a gift I would always close with "Sincerely, Ginger". Often I'd say to myself how it sounded like it would be the name of a company, in that my name is different to begin with. Each piece of jewelry I make I see as a gift from myself to you or your loved one. When I am commissioned for a custom piece, I am thrilled to get to know my client on a more personal level. Words can't describe how it feels to see my client stand in amazement that their dream piece of jewelry has come to life! It is a feeling unlike any other to know that the jewelry I make will have stories tied to them, and could very well be passed down through generations as heirlooms.
I am gracious that you have come to my website and have chosen to learn more about me. May my creations bless both you and your loved ones.
