Silpada sells high quality sterling silver jewelry for women, men and children. The company's artisans design and handcraft a large variety of rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and toe rings.
Silpada's R & K collection, added in 2014, features "fashion-forward" designs in keeping with the latest jewelry trends. In-house artisans travel the globe to discover the newest ideas in materials and styles.
Bonnie Kelly and Teresa Walsh, Silpada's founders, began the business with $50 and a need to obtain appropriate jewelry for Suit Yourself, a company the women started to assist clients with wardrobe makeovers. The business began in 1993 as Cool Jewels, a home party endeavor that quickly garnered thousands of representatives selling jewelry in relaxed, informal social gatherings in homes across the country.
The company's name was changed to Silpada in 1997. It grew into a multimillion-dollar enterprise and eventually became known internationally. The size of the business and its international recognition led to Silpada's 2010 acquisition by Avon Products, Inc.
In 2013, Kelly, Walsh and their families bought Silpada from Avon, putting the company back into the hands of its founders. Silpada is setting its own fashion trends as of May 2015 and is making itself known in the business world.
