2023 International Women's Day

Made To Admire

Celebrating Our Favorite Women For International Women’s Day
From trailblazers to role models, these women have made a beautiful impact on our lives.

Ding…

Ding, ding, ding…

Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding…

Last March 8th, that was the sound of our inbox alerting us that we had received yet another message wishing us a Happy Women’s Day… and then another, and another, and many, many more by day’s end. Unlike other holidays or important dates where friends and family wanted us to know they were thinking of us, on this particular day they were thanking us. They had joined millions of other well-wishers around the globe who were praising women and girls for their achievements, support, compassion, and sisterhood.

The first Woman’s Day celebration took place in Chicago on May 3, 1908, bringing together an audience of 1,500 women dedicated to advancing the support of female workers. The following year, women gathered in New York for similar celebrations. Soon after, Women’s Day celebrations were being held throughout Europe and around the world. More recently, International Women’s Day has taken on more personal sentiments with coworkers, neighbors, and best friends reaching out with encouraging messages like “So Glad You’re In My Life”, “You Inspire Me”, and “You Lift Me Up”. March 8th has also become the official day to recognize and support women-owned businesses like Holly Yashi. (And yes, jewelry is the perfect token of appreciation to let your favorite women know how important they are.)

This year, we wanted to share a list of women who we not only appreciate and admire, but who inspire our designs with their unique, colorful, and sometimes quirky style. This is our dream list of women we’d love to befriend in real life—and not just so we could get a peek inside their closets and jewelry boxes! They’re unapologetically themselves and shine with a light that’s all their own. And that’s exactly what the spirit of Holly Yashi was based upon.

Dolly Parton

The Tennessee songbird and virtuoso tops our list with more accomplishments that could fit in ten lifetimes. But it’s Dolly’s show stopping style that makes her the queen of our hearts. Brighter than a shooting star and just as magical, some say she’s an angel on earth. And we agree!

Can we talk? Our favorite funny lady was a pioneer not only as a comic but also as a dazzling businesswoman. And when it came to her style, nothing was too over the top. Glimmer, glamour, gold, opulence—pour it on!

Ree Drummond

The Pioneer Woman is just as sweet as her gooey peppermint brownies. And she’ll make you feel right at home with her southern charm and contagious smile. Her easy-breezy floral style is something to admire too. Which makes us wonder if there’s anything this radiant redhead doesn’t make better.

The glasses, the necklaces—we’re obsessed! She might be Oprah’s best friend, but we wish she was ours. Paving the way for women journalists, she’s smart, outspoken, and oozes sophistication. Gayle’s confidence and capabilities are next level, as is her personal style.

Elizabeth Taylor

As one of Hollywood’s most enduring and recognizable icons, her acting skills earned her some of the industry’s greatest honors. And her penchant for diamonds and dramatic gowns is just as much a part of her legacy. But it was Elizabeth’s steadfast dedication to AIDS research that solidified her as a legend.

With pearls, headwraps, and stylized power suits, Dr. Angelou was always posh perfection. But not only was she glamorous, her memoirs and poems are anthems that make any woman raise her head up high.

She’s giggly and goofy and the type of happy-go-lucky dreamer every gal needs as a best friend. And from bikinis to red carpet gowns, she knows how to make an entrance—and usually in vibrant pastels. A girly-girl at heart, Goldie brings the sunshine wherever she goes.

Holly Hosterman

And the award for the woman we most appreciate and admire goes to…. It was 1981. Holly was the trained jewelry artist, the metalsmith, who had been creating jewelry since junior high. Fresh out of college, she took a risk and teamed with friend Paul “Yashi” Lubitz to start a business. From two people in a one-car garage to dozens of employees in a large studio and storefront, Holly’s vision transformed the lives of her team and the countless customers who love her creations so much, they call themselves collectors. Her talents as an artist are only surpassed by the kindness in her heart. And that’s why she’s loved and admired by everyone she meets.
