BR native’s jewelry line flourishing

Dotted Tusk—a tribal-themed jewelry line launched in 2012 from Caroline Gladney’s Baton Rouge home—is now sold in more than 20 stores across six states. Inspired after traveling to India, Gladney set aside her corporate career path and followed her passion instead. She now operates out of Atlanta, and she claims to be so busy completing orders and filling inventory that she often forgets to snag some jewelry for herself. “I end up borrowing my own designs from my mom and sister when I go back home,” Gladney says. “They have way more Dotted Tusk jewelry than I do!” To snag some Dotted Tusk jewelry of your own, shop its online store, or email [email protected] for special orders. Locally you can find the jewelry at Head Over Heels, Rodéo, Lukka and Tangerine.
