When Charmaine moved to Long Beach to finish high school and go to college, she continued to make simple earrings and necklaces with pearls and beads, but felt like there had to be something more advanced to pursue.
“I was getting my AA in fashion and I noticed they had some classes for metal smithing—I was very intimidated," she said. "There were big ol' hammers, machines I had never used... I took my first class and made a simple ring, and I proved to myself I could do it. That's when it hit me. That's when I got the itch.”
Despite the pull to stick to her passion, Charmaine pursued a 12-year career in Visual Merchandising, hitting a crossroads in her final year that would give way to Bless the Theory.
She discovered the name Bless the Theory when she was reading an article on adornment theory. A professor had written the piece and allowed his students to weigh in with their own ideas. One of the students had written something along the lines of, “I’m thankful for that theory and bless it.”
