Happy Birthday, Cindy Lewis!

Each month Tidbits celebrates the birthday of a local gal with a fab career.

Today's birthday girl is Cindy Lewis, a fan of all things sparkling and co-owner of local Lewis Jewelers
 
Happy birthday! We're bringing you a cupcake from Ooh La La to celebrate. What's your favorite flavor?
Nilla Nilla. I love vanilla, so that squared comes in at number 1 for me.
 
What's your daily uniform?
My clothes are on the simpler side because I enjoy accessorizing with jewelry. Jewelry, shoes and handbags can tell a lot about a person.
 
Favorite piece of jewelry...
This is a hard question to answer because I have many! Absolute fave is my wedding ring. My husband surprised me on a big birthday with an oval diamond. Diamonds make birthdays fun. It's mounted in a gorgeous setting with pink diamond accents.
 
Tell us about your business background.
Retail has always been a part of me. I remember being 7 years old and sneaking in the department store to help my mom price things at the cosmetics counter, then I graduated to writing thank you cards for her in junior high. As a young adult, working with customers and assisting in finding that piece of jewelry to create a special memory hooked me for life.
 
Where do you always take your visitors?
NASA of course! It still amazes me that we can get to space and back.
 
First piece of jewelry you ever splurged on...
A pair of gold hoops. I wore them with everything. To this day they are not alone in my jewelry box. All hoops are my friends. Right now, Armenta Old World hoops top the list.
 
What's in your clutch?
Two tubes of lipstick, a business card, Amex and at least $20 in cash. 
 
How many candles are you blowing out?
Just one! There is no need for the smoke detector to go off. One to make the wish.
 
How are you celebrating your birthday this year?
I'll celebrate with family and friends. I plan on several small get togethers. It's really a birthday week for me.
