The article presents information about the career of jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth. In 2000, Neuwirth began beading as a creative outlet and sent a package of 10 necklaces to Barneys New York Inc. with a magic marker note that read, Hope you love it. Two years later, Neuwirth got a financial partner and began to grow her business. If her parents hadn't pushed her, Neuwirth might still be teaching horseback riding instead of designing jewelry.
