Daily Inspiration: Meet Ashley Mobley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Mobley.

Hi Ashley, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I’m a Mompreneur, Design Teacher, and Jewelry & Accessories Designer and the owner of Ashmo Jewelry and Accessories which represents being Artfully Authentic, Soulfully Sophisticated, Humble & Honorable, Modestly Modern, and Outrageously Original. What inspires me most is family, being a positive example to youth and being an inspiration to others. As a handmade Jewelry and Accessories Designer community is very important to me and is what inspires my business. Designing since the young age of 16 and inspired by a love for Art, Culture, and Nature I have always been drawn to creating. As a child, my most beloved things to do involved spending quality time on weekends with my grandmother who was a Jane of all trades.

During those weekends, I learned how to Sew, Bake, Crochet, among a variety of others crafts. Those weekends also sparked a passion for Fashion and a love for creating one of a kind pieces that make its wearer feel special and unique. It was the beginning of Ashmo. I have been drawn to designing Jewelry and Accessories ever since. I fell in love with the stories Jewelry and Accessories told in history. Jewelry is a beautiful way of passing down memories and it’s been a passion to create Jewelry and Accessories that not only make people feel special but would become a small part of their most treasured moments and occasions. What keeps me inspired to create new designs are inspirations taken from Art, Culture, and Nature. I love to take traditional and unconventional materials to create wearable art that is colorful, bold, and distinctive. Ashmo Represents being “Artful Authentic and Sophisticated” and it’s those elements I focus on when designing my one of a kind statement Jewelry and Accessories. When designing, I also focus on creating pieces that will accentuate what’s beautifully unique in its wearer.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Some challenges I faced when I started my business was finding balance in managing being a Mom and Entrepreneur while also working a full-time job. My children are my biggest inspiration and first priority so with schedules, organization, and a lot of preparation I’m able to manage all three.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Two of my most beloved designs are my one of a kind Affirmation Charm Bracelets created with Natural and Semi Precious Stones which was designed to act as an encouraging and inspirational reminder to its wearer. And my vibrant and eclectic statement earrings designed from a variety of elements such as Sari Silk, Ankara Fabric, Clay, and Leather. I also design custom pieces for women, men and children such as Brooch ties, Men’s Bow ties, Necklaces, Bracelets, Hat Pins and Lapels, Boys Bow ties and Bracelet Sets and Glam Sets for little girls. In addition, to designing Jewelry I also offer Custom Brooch Bouquets and Wedding Jewelry. I teach Affirmation Design Classes and offer Jewelry Design Classes to those who would love to learn the basics of Jewelry Design. On my website, you can also find “Get Charmed Kits” inciting creativity by designing custom charm bracelets at home for a fun family night or girls night in.

What does success mean to you?
Success to me is passionately doing the things you love and positively and actively advocating for others in need. Being a leader and positive example in your community and making a mark on the world for being loving, compassionate, and kind. It’s being an inspiration to others as iron sharpens iron.
