Meet Kimberly Kerby

We’d love to introduce Kimberly Kerby of HaylenGrace Designs.

Briefly share how you became a freelancer.

It was an accident really. We had an idea to create a pair of earrings to show support to our local school and then people started asking where we got our earrings… We offered a presale (expecting to sell about 10 pair) and we sold over 60 pair within 24 hours. So we decided we had a good thing and decided to run with it.

What has been your biggest win as a freelancer?

Being able to tell our story and show women the importance of building each other up.

What are some of the hurdles you’ve overcome as a freelancer in Houston? Do you think this hurdles are indicative to Houston or to the freelancer profession overall?

Our hurdles, so far, have been learning curves. We had no idea what kind of interest we would spark so we weren’t prepared! I think everyone building a business has this type of hurdle.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out as a freelancer?

Just do it. Plan it out and believe in yourself. I hear about so many great ideas but people afraid to get started because they are afraid to fail. You’ll never know if you never try.

Let’s say I’m a client that’s looking to hire a freelancer that does what you do. Why should I hire you?

We customize lightweight, bold and flirty earrings. We don’t outsource… we design, laser cut, assemble and ship all of our own designs. So when you hire us you’re working with a team that values quality, customer service and believes in making people FEEL good through fun pieces of jewelry.
