Growing up on Hilton Head Island, Selina King always had a great appreciation for the natural beauty of the Lowcountry - the majestic oak trees, salt marshes and tranquil waves of the Atlantic. Those Southern roots, along with her Native American and Sephardic Jewish heritage, her bohemian upbringing and a healthy dose of creativity passed down from her parents, have all shaped who she is today. They have also inspired her line of jewelry, which is loved by women of all ages and backgrounds around the world.
Growing up, my family had very little money. My parents did charity work often, and there was always someone we were helping. My father told me, “Even though we don’t have much money, there is someone else in a worse situation. We need to help others.” I’ve lived by this rule my entire life, and I will never forget what my father and mother did for so many. I have been given an ability, a gift I can share with women to empower them and make them feel good about themselves. I’ve donated to many organizations in the past, but now I felt it had come full circle.
