 Fabulous Fun Fashion Facts

In the Fall of 2006, Betsy Pittard Hartley walked into Head Over Heels, a shoe boutique in Macon, Georgia, with nothing but a shoebox full of jewelry. She left that afternoon with her first store and a growing dream. Now, let's flash forward to five years down the road {2011} when Betsy moved to Augusta, Georgia and married her husband Brian in August of 2012. In that same year, Betsy hired her first employee. Her dream continued to grow.
Betsy Pittard Designs is now a thriving jewelry line that caters to the styles of the boho babes, the party all nighters, the women on the go, the chic, the edgy, the timeless classics, and the brides. Though the jewels, metals and beads are purchased from places all over the world, each design is created and crafted in the U.S. And speaking of the U.S., you can shop the collection in person in one of our 200+ retail stores. For a full list, please visit "locations." 
Some call it luck. Some call it magic. We call it a decade of Betsy working her ___ off. Late nights. Early mornings. Hot attics. Cold basements. Moving. Moving again. Moving two more times. Hello, beautiful office! Road trips. Caffeine. Celebrations. Disappointments. Growing dreams. Changing dreams. New friends. It has been an exciting ride, thanks to you!
So, what's next for BPD? You'll have to wait and see . . .
