Cheri Taliaferro Jewelry is for authentic gritty gals who won't sacrifice their power nor their femininity for any reason.
For her 12 years as a Smokejumper/Firefighter, Cheri often struggled with trying to choose between being tough and being pretty (It wasn't that long ago that women had to fight to be respected in a mainly male-dominated profession like fire, because being pretty could be seen as being weak.) She decided to combine the two with her jewelry brand, Cheri Taliaferro Jewelry.
She became a fire fighter in 1993, spending six years as a "Hot Shot," and eventually realized her dream of becoming a smokejumper, where she was employed for six more years.
She spent her "off-season" working in Antarctica, at the South Pole and McMurdo, for the National Science Foundation, operating heavy equipment and working with military aircraft.
After traveling the world for over a decade she went to the ends of the earth to find the love of her life, Will Taliaferro. They met while working in Antarctica, married and now have 2 beautiful children.
