In this edition of Career 100 Podcast, Felicia Gopaul, talks with Shimoda, owner and publisher of  Shimoda Accessories about another of the Top 100 Careers – Jeweler.

I first saw Shimoda’s jewelry in 1997 when I was using “Jumping the Broom: The African-American Wedding Planner” to plan my wedding but did not meet her until 2007.  Her jewelry has been seen on numerous television shows including the Cosby Show, worn by entertainers including an Oscar Winner, a Grammy Winner and the former president of Spellman College, Jonnetta Cole. That is why Shimoda is today known as the Celebrity Jewelry Designer to the rich, famous and the wanting to be fabulous.
