With roots firmly planted in North Carolina, Watts Grocery takes its name from the Watts-Hillandale neighborhood where Amy has fond childhood memories and the Watts St. Grocery, a favorite shop for candy and snacks in Trinity Park in her childhood.

Tiffany Coley Artisan Jewelry

Tiffany Coley Artisan Jewelry is a juxtaposition of work that is focused on being industrial yet a little feminine.

Her love of creation started at a young age. She was always fascinated by gemstones, which adorned her grandmother Ruby’s hands. Although she has always created and made things, her love of math and science led her to a career in engineering.

After the birth of her first child, with the help of a supportive husband, she decided to postpone the engineering career and spend time at home with her son.  After lots of self-instruction and intensive workshops from artists that she admires, Tiffany Coley Artisan Jewelry has slowly grown from a small hobby into a full-fledged business.
