Local jewelry designer and South Africa native Natalie Mills relocated to Plano with her family in 2016. She credits a combination of street smarts and good old-fashioned gumption for propelling her to household-name status back home with Crystal Creations by Natalie Mills, the jewelry company she founded in 2012. “No dream is too big, as long as you are willing to work for it,” she says.
In February, Ms. Mills officially launched her company stateside. She designs thousands of glittering pieces, including bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings and watches.
From South Africa to North Texas, Ms. Mills has already made her mark! “There is something about Texans — their hospitality, the way they want to help you and the networking they do for you. It has been phenomenal,” she shares. Time will tell what dreams will become a reality for Ms. Mills next!
