We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Bausch Weld and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Almost 2 years ago, I started a morning meditation practice that has been life changing. Being still and sitting in silence has contributed to the success of my brand, my designs, and has brought great clarity to my path ahead. This is also where I find inspiration and ideas for the pieces I create and the goals I set for the business.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
After graduating from CU Boulder I moved to San Francisco to sell my beaded necklaces. I really didn’t have any idea how to build a brand at this point and needed more fashion experience. I spent a little over a year there and then was offered an assistant design position in NYC for an amazing designer and artist, Ippolita. Besides working on her Gold line, I also worked on the private label team. I launched the fashion jewelry lines for brands including, BCBG, JCrew, Neiman Marcus, Anthropologie, Ann Taylor and more. After leaving Ippolita, I became the Design Director of Banana Republic jewelry. Later I designed for Alexis Bittar, Larkspur & Hawk, Club Monaco, Judith Leiber and more. In 2019, I began growing my own jewelry brand, Fiore Wylde. Starting with custom designs and working towards a line of meaningful jewelry. After working for so many brands, I’ve learned a tremendous amount about what kind of jewelry I want to produce. I’m interested in craftsmanship, lasting quality and meaningful design. The most challenging part of working for myself is being responsible for all aspects of the business specifically.

My mother, Eileen, has always been my biggest support. She is a great listener and gives solid feedback. She is also a style icon and loves helping people to look their best.
