FRILLS AND FLOUNCES A CHARLESTON MAKER AND HER LOVED ONES THRILL FASHIONISTAS WITH HANDMADE PIECES THAT SHIMMER, SHINE, AND SHAKE UP ANY WARDROBE.

Mimi Striplin recognized the potential for these sassy strands in all shades of the rainbow to brighten both outfits and moods, so she founded a jewelry company that showcases the endless wearable possibilities. “The Tiny Tassel is best described by our core value: happiness,” says Mimi, a South Carolina native and graduate of the College of Charleston. “My inspiration was to bring joy to others’ lives by hand-making statement earrings in fun, bright colors.” Available in a variety of hues, the Signature Tassel Earrings were Mimi’s premier offering when she started out on the online company…
