Meet Our Founder
Hello there, rockstar!
Pick that chin up and glisten up your own unique smile! You love to live life abundantly, but you've experienced hardships that have held you back from discovering what more you can do with your life, with your story.
I know that feeling, I've been in your shoes, not just once, not just twice, but several times. My name is Jessica, Founder and Designer of Jessica Santander, also formerly known as Project Moment Designs. I understand what it's like to hit rock bottom and fear that there's no more opportunities to start again, and this is why I started my jewelry brand. I wanted to re-discover what made me feel that childhood spirit of boundary-less ambitions and allow myself to truly LOVE all of what makes me, me. The fascination with colors of life, my cultural heritage, and innate beauty of fearless women are what fuels my inspiration to my jewelry designs, along with the incredible character and life lessons from my parents (one of which mirrors their bravery for leaving their home countries, Brazil and Colombia, at 18 years of age to have the means of providing educational opportunities for their family).
One can say that my journey as a jewelry designer started ever since I was a little girl. From ensuring I had the complete Jasmine costume for Halloween (especially the accessories) to putting together my own #outfitoftheday with my mother's closet and surprising my mom when she got home, my heart has always been enlightened by the power jewelry has to express our story and chapter in the making. Yet, it wasn't until going through a series of rejections, more like almost 2 years of closed doors of trying to find a full time job upon graduation and then feeling incomplete after landing a role in Digital Marketing, that I decided to make the change I wanted to see in my life and give this forever flaming passion a chance to live. Honoring the raw, personalized magic of jewelry and blending together South American cultural aesthetics with whimsical colors create our unique jewelry designs that will have you feeling young at soul and wholeheartedely inspired to create the journey of your dreams. With our designs, you'll be guided in taking that new footstep forward to writing a novel story that you've dreamed of with limitless ambitions!
