Taylor Reese lives with her husband Wes in Gastonia, North Carolina. A graduate of Queens University of Charlotte, Reese worked in the fashion industry for companies including Belk and J.Crew. During that time, Reese started Reese’s Hardwear as an outlet to share those “extra” moments of life, including her modern, colorful style. In 2006, Reese began making jewelry to add to her bold outfits when she couldn’t find the items she was looking for in stores. She continued to cultivate her jewelry making skills and now crafts unique pieces for her friends, family, and now to give back to her local community.
