We are from Tupelo, MS and became friends while attending Tupelo Public Schools, then off to college together. Afterwards, life took us in different directions for many years. Learning and making handmade fine jewelry has brought us together again. We named our business MSmade to represent the facts that we are Mississippi based, as well as run by women.
(From Left to right above) Gabrielle Gunter Cooper is a retired bank officer and lives in Tupelo with her husband, Rick. They have two grown daughters, Alexandria and Kelly, a dog and cat, Jake and Sophie, respectively.
Julianne Battaile Goodwin and her husband Jim are business owners in Tupelo and have two grown children, John Goodwin and Annie McGregor, a beautiful granddaughter, and their dog, Archie Manning Goodwin.
Teresa Moore Mendenhall is a retired physician who now resides in Ridgeland with her husband, David. They have three grown daughters, Ann, Meg and Jana, a dog named Mayzie, and a cat named Solaris.
All of our jewelry is made with sterling silver and 14k gold-filled materials, along with Swarovski crystals and pearls. We personally wire wrap all our bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and rings by hand. We love to experiment with a variety of materials and textures. Renewing our friendship and working together has been a true blessing.
