Tonya Barlow Jewelry began over 15 years ago when Tonya Barlow was looking for a way to work from home.
“I was pregnant with my first son and I was looking for a way to stay home from work and raise him. My business started out with hand poured candles. It wasn’t long after that I began making jewelry as well. I did very well with both but jewelry making wasn’t nearly as messy as candle making so I sold my candle business. I worked out of a spare bedroom for over 10 years and then my husband built my first store beside my house. I was able to still be home with my children and grow my business at the same time,” said Tonya.
People in Choctaw County, surrounding areas and other states loved Tonya Barlow Jewelry so much it was time for her to expand.
“Fast forward 5 years and I have out grown that building (first store) so my husband built this new store for me. For the first time in over 15 years I don’t work at home, which is why this venture started, but the Lord has blessed me by allowing me to be home with my children when they were young. I have changed my name to Barlow Blue because we do so much more than jewelry now,” said Tonya.
Barlow Blue will continue the Tonya Barlow Jewelry tradition of taking great care of their customers.
“Barlow Blue is a family owned small business. We pride ourselves in offering high quality products at the best prices possible. We have built a reputable business by taking great care of our customers for over 15 years,” said Tonya.
