Written By Teresa Garcia Photographer: Ken Lytle Fashion Susan Savage- Jewelry made for every woman Susan Savage is originally from Germany and re- located to Albuquerque in 2004. She is married and her husband Tremayne of almost 21 years is a military veteran and has served in the Army for 22 years. He has been on several deployments and has always taken care of her and their family which consists of three boys, Shawn 23, Josh 17 and Myles 8. Susan is also currently a 1st grade teacher and has her Bachelor’s degree in Business and Accounting as well as continuing her educa- tion in pursuit of her Master’s in Education. Su- san began her business in “Paparazzi Jewelry and Accessories” back in February 2013 where she wanted to make a little extra spending money. At the time, she was not serious about it. After a few years went by, she continued to wear her jewelry from her business. Every time she wore her jew- elry someone would ask about where she found it. Finally, in 2017 Susan decided to get serious and truly work the business. She realized that she wanted to change her life, she wanted to be her own boss, while also changing other women’s lives. What better way to do it than with what women love most, jewelry! We are in the era of women where we have more entrepreneurs than ever before. Susan is a wom- an we can all relate to. She’s hardworking, she’s a mother, a wife, a teacher, and she has her own business! I strongly believe that we as women can Fashion do anything we put our mind to and Susan is the perfect example of that. Susan states that now that she has decided to take her business seriously it has bloomed for her. Paparazzi Jewelry and Ac- cessories has not only allowed for a little bit more spending money but has taken care of her car pay- ment, phone bill, utilities, and activities with her children. Now that is a true entrepreneur! As I’ve stated before, once we focus on what we want in life and are truly passionate about something we have set ourselves up for nothing but success. Susan is not only striving to make this her full- time job but she also wants to share this opportu- nity with women who want to feel confident and beautiful. The jewelry that this business carries is amazing and to many it’s a surprise that it is only 5 dollars! We as women clearly love to feel like a million bucks every day and it’s an added bonus when we can do it without spending a lot of mon- ey. Susan wants all women that wear her jewelry to feel empowered, bring strength and indepen- dence in anything they do. She wants to hopefully even provide an opportunity in their confidence to financial freedom with affordable jewelry. Su- san has also impacted her community in more ways than one. Recently in December of 2017, Susan and her business donated to women of a local Shelter called S.A.F.E House. She contribut- ed by donating 85 pieces of jewelry for Christmas Kathy Beal & Susan Savage
