Let me introduce myself, my name is Ruth Anne and I live in Akron, Ohio. When I was 16, I needed a job with flexible hours that was willing to work with my schedule. I began working for the original owner of the company, Jen Scourfield. She trained me in the trade, which sparked my interest to make this into my career. I went on to graduate from Woodridge High School. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Kent State University.
After graduation I got a job making jewelry, in Cleveland, where I worked for 5 years and decided it was time to come home to my roots. I am so happy to be back with Forget Me Nots, now, as the owner. When I was younger I had always wanted to one day own this business. Funny how the universe brings things back to you. Jen and I still laugh about when I worked for her, all the boy drama, the fights I had with my parents, and the memories of her boys growing up.
That's what I love so much about Forget Me Nots, you are able to capture the memories and moments in life. The ones that show your past, those that shape who you are in the present, and who you can become in the future if you believe in yourself.
