OUR TEAM


THE BRAND

We believe luxury should be attainable and jewelry should be handmade with care for everyday wear. As designers and creators, we consider what modern life looks like and how we can adorn it with a special touch. The connection you feel to your jewelry should be a meaningful one. It speaks to who you are and what you love. We launched our brand on this philosophy with our Constellation Collection. Whether you’re a down to earth Virgo or a fiery Leo, the stars tell your story and represent who you are at your core. Our engravables are here to tell your more personal story and honor life’s milestones; along with our pendant collection to help promote the feelings of protection, balance, guidance x strength. Inspired by modern lines, art x the stars in the night sky.

Each piece is handmade with love to be loved.

THE STORY

Our founding sisters, Lisa and Jade, opened their first clothing boutique in Arkansas in 2005. After 10 years in the retail industry, they saw an opportunity to fill the void that they experienced in the jewelry world - a fine jewelry feel with a softer price. As they opened their west coast store in San Diego, California in 2014, they found their inspiration to create the THATCH brand . They opened a sunny design studio in the heart of Liberty Station: a thriving art, food x shopping destination in Southern California. Keeping all aspects of the business in-house, they assembled the small but mighty all female team that has since grown into a global brand of quality luxe jewelry complete with sustainable x reusable packaging.

THE TEAM


LISA GARRISON : Founder x Designer

SAGITTARIUS - The Philosopher

Our style icon, Lisa, has impeccable taste and a sophisticated eye. The brand itself was modeled from Lisa’s personal style - elevated, dainty x minimal with an edge. As our founder she set the tone, and has assembled a team of women who could empower one another, be hands on and express their creativity. Lisa is a passionate animal lover and co-founder of Big Dog Rescue Project, a dog rescue based in Dallas, Seattle and New Jersey, focused on saving large breeds from high kill shelters throughout Texas. She is the mother to many of her own rescue dogs and horses in her hometown of Dallas, Texas.


JADE TERMINELLA : Founder x Creative

ARIES - The Daredevil

Our go getter and deal maker, Jade was the one who pushed the dream to reality. She saw the potential when she moved to California to build out and launch their west coast clothing boutique - THATCH’s first loyal retailer. The name THATCH came from Jade’s first born soul puppy, Milo Thatch. She built the foundation for the company and went on to expand their chain of boutiques as well as pursue other entrepreneurial ventures but maintains a strong influence in the collections and the brand.


LAURA LAING : Designer

TAURUS - The Creative

Trained in jewelry design and metalsmithing, Laura takes the design concepts and brings it to life in the final collections. From initial sketch to the end product, she has her meticulous eye on each step of the process. Her passion for art, design, and craftsmanship stems from her artistic father who nourished her creativity and encouraged her love to create things by hand. She believes jewelry is wearable art and a self expression - unique to every individual. With her rescue pups, Cassie x Luke, by her side, she spends each day fully submerged in her craft.


AMY OLSON GOIN : Sales Director

SCORPIO - The Intuitive

Amy is our brand and industry expert. She loves to form strong connections and curate the best assortments for our retailers. She truly knows the ins and outs the THATCH customer as she herself was one of our first customers. After a decade of hustling the showroom scene in NYC, Amy and her husband moved to California to enjoy a more balanced, sunny life. When she discovered THATCH as an emerging local company, she saw an opportunity to help the brand expand. Her drive and silly spirit keep us moving onward and upward.


KRISTY SPICUZZA : Studio Operations x Customer Service x Photographer

With a keen eye for detail, Kristy makes sure everything runs smoothly and our customers are always satisfied.

NIKI COFINI : Marketing

ARIES - The Determined

Niki's passion for jewelry started a young age, always trying to find unique new pieces to wear. Layering bracelets and necklaces, to finding the perfect combination of rings. This eventually led her to metalsmithing. Though her obsession with jewelry never dwindled her career took her down the marketing path. Niki quickly found her place here at THATCH where she is able to combine her marketing skills with her passion for jewelry - moving us forward to help us broaden our reach.
