Each piece is made of .999 fine silver and because each piece is handcrafted, no two pieces will look exactly alike and may have slight imperfections. These imperfections reflect the uniqueness and beauty in all of us. On the back of most pendants is Solo Travel Girl’s motto of “Traveling alone, not lonely” a reminder to the wearer she is strong, confident and able to accomplish anything she wants, whether it’s dining alone in a restaurant for the first time, traveling cross-country or circumventing the globe solo.

How the Solo Travel Girl Collection Was Born
A workplace introduced them in 2014 but their passion for travel, adventure and exploring the world connected Deanna and Jennifer.

 

The Solo Travel Girl Collection was born out of Jennifer’s philosophy of “traveling alone, not lonely” because she knows many of her sisters are doing this as well. She wanted to create something for them to carry during their adventures to give them a little boost of confidence. For safety reasons Jennifer does not believe solo female travelers should broadcast they’re traveling alone and decided jewelry was the best token to wear. At the same time, Deanna began handcrafting unique pieces of jewelry inspired by her global travels and in early 2016, gave Jennifer one of her beautiful pendants. As they say, the rest is history.
