Meet Aun’Jenèlle Weaver of 21 and The Moon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aun’Jenèlle Weaver.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Aun’Jenèlle. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
21 and The Moon is a jewelry line I created in 2016. I had been making jewelry for myself years before that, and finally decided to make a business out of it after I kept getting compliments on the pieces I would wear.

I used to make bracelets and anklets out of hemp years ago. I’ve always loved jewelry that had a special meaning behind it. With 21 and The Moon I really wanted to create pieces, that would inspire people to live their life with intention

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There definitely have been some challenges. One thing I’ve learned is that patience is absolutely necessary. Being an entrepreneur is stressful at times. Having to fund everything by myself as well as creating all of the pieces, & doing all of the marketing for the company can be a lot of work. It’s a one-woman show over here, but I’m really thankful that I am able to follow my passion.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
21 and The Moon is an intentional jewelry line. I make mala beads, bracelets, and waist beads using natural crystals and gemstones. Our waist beads are definitely one of our most popular items: I think it’s beautiful that more and more women are wanting to adorn their waists. I’m really proud that I am able to make pieces that really connect with the wearer, and their mood or the mood they want to attract. Each piece I make is made with love and intention, and I love that our message resonates with our customers.

What were you like growing up?
I’ve always loved expressing my individuality and have never really fit in. I was often looked at as a little weird lol, but I just consider myself to be eclectic and have many different interests. I was always really into different forms of creative expression (singing, writing, painting, etc). In school, I was very involved in music and art. It was always a great outlet for me.
