MEET ALL SEVEN JEWELRY FREAKS

MEET ALL SEVEN JEWELRY FREAKS

  Ha! Now you finally get to see the faces behind Wildthings. This is us. Just a bunch of ladies with typical traits, crazy habits & guilty pleasures. Like every girl has.
In our first blog we already told you a bit more about our founder Leanne Jacometti. Currently it is not her working on the company, but six other jewelry freaks who are helping her out. The team consists of an e-commerce manager, Leanne her personal assistant, a B2B sales manager, a project manager and two interns: creative & e-commerce. Besides this 'girl-boss team' we work with many other freelancers and companies. Like our Facebook guru, the best packaging team in the world, our sales agents in multiple countries and of course our sweet Balinese flagship store staff. 

As you can hear, Wildthings grew from a one man show to a crew of creative and enthusiastic people.

So let’s introduce the Wildthings team!
