Molly Yates was raised on sweet tea and sunshine in the small town of Camden, South Carolina. She attended Clemson University where she began studying fine art, but later switched to marketing.

After graduation, Molly moved to Atlanta and landed her first job working as a contractor for Coca-Cola in 2002. On a whim eleven years and three jobs later, she decided to take a metal stamping class and instantly fell in love with the craft. When losing her job a month later, she decided to jump in head first as a jewelry artist.

Molly loves making people smile with her jewelry and other accessories, and gets an awesome feeling when people giggle at her sayings. Through her jewelry, she gives people daily reminders to just breathe.
