Camechis said the items that she sells are lead- and nickel-free. She went into business with Paparazzi in August 2020, right in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and said she showed her wares in online shows.

A challenge, she said, was being able to show the jewelry “by Facebook Live, and having the self-confidence to get in front of the camera.”

Camechis is a native of Mathews County and has some college background in nursing, and is also a licensed cosmetologist and has a CDL.

She and her husband, Travis Camechis, have one son, Gavin.
