Connie Cusick of PROOF Jewelry – A Renaissance Woman!!

Glam” …. I love that word! That word is the embodiment of cool, fashionable and fun all rolled up into one very unique entity.


Glam is how I would describe one of TLV’s favorite people, and our new featured vendor!  Connie Cusick, creator of the fabulously chic PROOF Jewelry line, is a serious ball of energy sprinkled with style and wit. I get both entertained and tired just watching her. Need “proof”? Within the last 10 years she has formed 7 different companies and has most recently been certified in business coaching at NYU and Harvard.

Upon first meeting Connie you may notice she and her cellphone are inseparable. Social media is key in any business and Connie is an expert in this field; it is after all one of her key businesses: “Be a Business Badass”. Awesome name! She is constantly snapping photos and posting updates of her jewelry line, the trunk show she is running and/or being featured in, the vendor events she participates in etc etc etc … it really is non-stop for Connie.

When she isn’t being a BADASS, Connie is traveling to Europe on that relentless search for the next fresh piece, or that inspirational design idea which she’ll incorporate into her PROOF Jewelry collection. Did I neglect to mention that Connie is also a Mom?! Yep, in addition to all of this, she is raising two wonderful boys while maintaining a beautiful home in Connecticut. This gal truly rocks!


Here’s a little bit about what motivates Connie, straight from the source, in this revealing 5 point Q & A:
