A podcast by a jewelry designer for the jewelry industry. Tracy Matthews is a successful, bespoke fine jewelry designer and the co-founder and CEO of Flourish & Thrive Academy, the premier online education company for independent jewelry brands. Thrive by Design was developed to support designers and makers with business, marketing and lifestyle strategies to help them reach the full potential of their brand. Tracy Matthews loves to share her experiences, success and failures of building a successful jewelry brand. She also really has a blast interviewing major players in the jewelry industry and beyond -- from well-known designers to famous bloggers to store owners and PR mavens. She’s on a mission to break down the barriers of the tight-lipped jewelry industry and strongly believes in community and collaboration over competition.
