Lindsey Leigh Hohlt, Founder of Lindsey Leigh Jewelry, what it is like starting a business being a female, balancing a family, the struggles of it all, basically anything and everything!


About Lindsey Leigh Hohlt:

Being a female in a male-dominant industry, Lindsey Leigh Hohlt wanted to set a new standard for custom jewelry design. The industry was in desperate need of an experience that's comfortable and relaxed, but also very chic and elevated. Breaking free of outdated jewelry practices, Lindsey created something fresh, new, and modern. So, in 2018, she launched Lindsey Leigh Jewelry (LLJ) in a duplex in Houston, TX, where both she and her husband lived and worked. Since LLJ's humble beginnings, Lindsey has persevered through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, laid roots in Houston with a brand-new headquarters, grown a team of expert jewelers, and expanded her collection to include elegant, everyday jewelry. Clients who start out with a one-time engagement purchase continually come back for an LLJ-spin on statement pieces, special keepsakes to memorialize milestones, and one-of-a-kind, custom classics. What set Lindsey up for entrepreneurial success: her background in fashion merchandising and business at LSU and her General Manager role at a local Houston jewelry boutique. Well, that, and a lot of grit and determination. While working at a previous employer, she put herself through Gemological Institute of America to receive her GIA certification. Family is everything to Lindsey, including her husband John, son Henry, daughter Lilly, the LLJ team, and their little ones who are frequently seen running around the showroom. Currently, she is involved in She Has Hope, an organization dedicated to restoring a life of hope to vulnerable girls and women in Asia and Africa. As part of She Has Hope, Lindsey has participated in several mission trips to Nepal to teach women how to make jewelry. Lindsey is a frequent public speaker, loves to spend time with her family at the lake, and her work has been featured in Houston Chronicle, Houston Business Journal, The New York Times, and Texas Weddings.
