If you’ve been following me, you know my heart lies with small businesses and I think it’s about time I share my top 5 female-owned businesses. Jewelry, clothing, home decor, and so much more – I love shopping small and finding those who will truly take the time to show their customers they care and are passionate about what they do! Here are a few of my tried-and-true favorites – be sure to click on the links below each shop as they will redirect you to their site!
I found Milltown Soap Co. about a year ago and have been so grateful since to have come across her page! The company was started in 2016 by Rebekah Creamer and in 2019 she launched her candle line. She is one of the most creative and kindest souls I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with and her products are serious must-haves. She takes special care to use plant-based ingredients and all her products are paraben and phalate free. One of my favorites by Milltown Soap Co. is the Frost scented candle – it only comes out around Christmas time but it’s such a good gift and smells SO good! If you don’t have her products, you’re missing out! From bath salts and shampoo bars to candles and sugar scrubs – make sure to check out her Instagram and site below!
Abby Alley is an incredible American women-owned and run business that has quickly become one of my top 5 female-owned businesses; they have partnered with talented artisans in Kenya and Tanzania to create such timeless and lasting jewelry, bags, and more. Abby, the incredible founder of the company, started Abby Alley after teaching in a school in Tanzania in 2016 where she learned about East African culture, craft, and fair trade. She began working with artisans and testing the market with an online store before finally launching her brand, Abby Alley, in November of 2018. She has created a business with a strong foundation rooted in several important values: authenticity, collaboration, quality, sustainability, timelessness, and transparency. A few of my favorite pieces are the Heritage earrings and the Sling Bag – both lasting pieces that are functional and stylish with just about anything!

Shannon Buth is an incredible Boss Babe who has created a company with the sole purpose of bringing women together. As she so perfectly puts it, “Every woman deserves to be surrounded by other strong, supportive women to thrive. We’re better together.” The intent behind it all is to spread love, the understanding of imperfection, and connection. The Imperfect Heart pin is one of my favorite products by her, one that I just had to purchase and share with my own team of incredible women as it states to “live what you love.” Shannon has also made it so that $5 of each purchase made on her site is donated to women’s charities. Make sure to check out her Instagram and site below to browse some awesome House of Shan attire and those incredible pins I mentioned!
I came across Amanda Deer Jewelry thanks to one of my awesome assistants (you rock Ches!) and one of my FAVORITE pieces to wear daily is from there. Anyone who’s followed me for the last year or so knows that my Moon & Stars necklace is everything to me and one of my favorite pieces to gift to other incredible women in my life. Amanda Eddy, the mastermind behind the company, has done an amazing job at creating a Texas-based business full of creativity and her pieces amaze me to no end. Everyone needs a timeless piece from her so be sure to check out her business linked below – use my code JOCELYN, for a discount!
Words don’t do this company justice – Jazlyn and I have been good friends since high school and a while back she began creating jewelry, but stopped when she began having more babies. I always wanted her to continue though because she was incredibly talented and was so happy when she came out with new pieces! Since then, she’s been creating gorgeous jewelry and has been so successful as I knew she’d be – her company has truly flourished over time! Her pieces are timeless, lasting, and just gorgeous. She’s created multiple pieces alongside Native American jewelers, something that makes her stand apart from others. A couple of my all-time favorite pieces of her jewelry are the Jocelyn ring, the Paisley ring, and the 5 Bar ring amongst the many necklaces I have as well. Jaz is my go-to for statement pieces and I love that these are pieces that could be passed down for generations to come!
