Gloria Kucich is the founder behind our brand; she studied Graphic Design at the Institute of Design in Caracas, Venezuela. It was the right choice as she had always been fascinated with the fashion industry and  beautiful lines and composition. Once she graduated she worked in the field, while also pursuing classes in clothing design learning how to cut and saw.

 After finishing her course in Venezuela, she moved to NYC to continue her journey as a fashion designer at Parsons School of Design. There she had a chance of directly working with a fashion designer, opportunity that guided her first steps in the fashion industry.

Returning to her native Venezuela, at the age of 25, Gloria and her lifelong friend - started MAREA SWIMWEAR, a custom-made swimsuit brand. During the following twelve years, Gloria evolved in her design-capacity, grew as an entrepreneur and successfully managed her own business. In that period, she got married, had two beautiful daughters and decided to move again to the US with her family.

It has been over 10 years since, but now that her daughters are 18 and 15 Gloria is fully invested into The Shop'n Glow her new fine jewelry venture.

A few years ago a group of friends started a non profit foundation called M Foundation, and every December, they organized a bazar to raise funds that help the people in her country. Every year Gloria was present selling shirts, bags or cakes… but on 2019 she decided to look for cute jewelry that everyone loves for holiday gifts, birthdays, mother’s day and so on… That’s where The Shop'n Glow started……
