7th Anniversary Moment 1: Before the Beginning.
Posted on March 25, 2015
Fast forward several years later to early 2008 when it was time for Betsy to name her new line of jewelry. She wanted a name that would represent herself, the maker, and also give a nod to her influences. "When I was naming the business," Betsy wrote in 2009, "I wanted it to be personal while genuinely reflecting the style of the emerging collections. I have always been most fascinated with the harmony found in contrasts. We are precisely that: Betsy is classic, like a part of my designs. Iya is more exotic, like a part of my designs. Betsy is old; Iya is new. Together they are a perfect match. Together they make me feel bigger than I am. Together, I am stronger."
