Our mission is simple: to facilitate bringing women together over a shared love of fashion, accessories and shopping. We want daughters, mothers, aunts, sisters or best friends to have fun with accessorizing, no matter their age.
We design and manufacture packaged accessories, gifts and jewelry that are rooted in classic styles, but always with a little extra drama. Our goal is to create pieces that are actually ageless. Violet & Brooks is defined by an overtly feminine vibe that’s fun and playful, but we want women everywhere to be able to confidently wear our jewelry and accessories in their own way.
Central to our mission is our dedication to supporting our retail partners, and our 30 years experience suggests that creating an elevated customer experience that includes packaging that delights, programs that support retailers, seamless delivery, and responsive service makes a difference. We understand that you have so many great options to choose from– we are committed to earning your trust, building relationships that last and offering you designs that sell.
Finally, we believe that it’s our shared responsibility to give back. We donate a percentage of all profits to the Covenant House, an organization that helps homeless youth and teens.
Creative Director Robbin has exquisite taste and a keen eye for jewelry, accessories and home decor. She has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion jewelry to develop product (including Anthropologie, Disney, Vera Bradley and Kate Spade) that connects to the consumer and drives profit. She's not afraid of BIG projects like renovating houses (including knocking down walls & refinishing hardwood floors), but counts raising her two children, Madisen and Spencer as her greatest achievement.
With a degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising and years of working in upscale boutiques, Madisen's formal experience is not the only asset she brings to Violet & Brooks. Having grown up watching her mother Robbin work in this industry, she has a lifetime of knowledge of how the business works. Her personal style brings an update to the Violet & Brooks look, and melds with her mother's taste to create pieces that stand the test of time, across all generations.
Madisun is an artist and designer with her B.F.A in Painting from Tyler School of Art. A natural maker, she enjoys working in a multitude of mediums from paint to metals to digital design. Her dogs Stabler and Millie and cats Carmella and Meadow will vouch for her love of anything with fur. Madisun believes weekends should be spent at the dog park and a good flea market.
Spencer is a music enthusiast, a college student and a great friend. He is passionate about following process, which isn't always easy on a team of creatives. Spencer has a great eye for detail and will spot a quality issue a mile away.
Monica Martin / OFFICE MANAGER
It takes a special kind of person to serve as a buffer between two creative perspectives, (especially when they’re mother and daughter!) but Monica manages this with ease and get things running smoothly at Violet & Brooks. A mother of two, she spends her time outside of the office with her family, fixing up her home, hosting events and cooking. She’s also our resident expert on what kind of wine we should drink after a long day in the office.
Marina Irizarry / BUSINESS MANAGER
Tech-savvy, highly efficient and yet one of the bubbliest people you’ll ever meet, Marina is a pro at connecting with people and sparking interesting conversation. Her kids are the most important thing in her life, and she enjoy tennis, yoga and spending time with family.
Italina Shea / CLIENT RELATIONS SUPERVISOR
