We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaela Genovese and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kaela, what do you attribute your success to?
Personally, I feel I can contribute much of my success to living a very ritualistic life. I am a creature of habit. I thrive on having a harmonious daily routine that consist of being healthy and happy on a regular basis. Of course, life throws you curve balls (more than you’d like at times) but it’s important to realize YOU are responsible for YOUR happiness and YOU have the power to lift YOURSELF up! Be the change that you wish to see!

Each piece in the La Enovesé Designs’ Designer Collection is custom created by Kaela just for you. There are five unique steps to Kaela’s design process for the collection. First, Kaela sketches with paper and pencil as the design begins to take shape. Once the sketch is complete, she digitizes it into a 3D model. After reviewing the 3D model, a rubber mold is created so that the jewelry can be cast. The master metal silhouette is then created. The metal casting is dipped into the selected gold and gives the jewelry piece its shine and finish before adding the pave crystals. Kaela’s talents extend beyond designing and hand crafting jewelry. Through the Restore and Renew service, she will work with you to transform your heirloom vintage jewelry into a modern piece that better matches you and your style. Additionally, the Styling and Accessorizing program allows clients to have an at-home or virtual consultation with Kaela where she helps style and accessorize your look for the next girls’ night out, gala or night on the town.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were visiting I would have the following itinerary planned out: an exercise activity for us in the morning, following by homemade post-workout smoothies or an acai bowl. Next we’d take a splash in the pool and lay poolside for a few hours to get our sun kissed glow. Lunch at Sant Ambroeus , shopping in Palm Beach on Worth and/or The Plaza, followed by Italian at my fav Pizza Al Fresco restaurant.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
No other than the one that brought me into this world, MY MAMI! Seriously, I would be completely lost without her and the guidance she has provided me throughout these 30 years of my life here on Earth! She grounds me when I need to be grounded; she educates and guides me in making the best decision that not only positively impacts myself, but also my future, and my business. Most importantly, she has taught me to see beauty in everything and everyone. She is the definition of “selfless”. I always like to ask her, “How did I get to be the complete opposite of you Ma?” I’m an extrovert and a people pleaser. I love hosting and attending parties, socializing in large group settings, putting together gatherings, vocalizing my thoughts/opinions/feelings, etc. My mom is more reserved and keeps a lot to herself. She always reminds me, “Kaela, God gave us ONE mouth and TWO ears! You must listen more and speak less.” When I was younger I never understood why she did the things she did, but as I am viewing life from a different more mature perspective, I’ve realized she is so wise and such a pure sweet soul. She has taught me just because I feel the way I feel toward something or someone does not permit that person to feel the same way. I, as well as her, like to see the good in everyone. However, sometimes I have too high of expectations of others and I get disappointed easily. Mom has taught me to just do and not expect a single thing from anyone! “Just do things from the pureness, goodness, and kindness of your heart and others or their actions won’t disappoint you.” How blessed am I to have HER as my mother, mentor, best friend, and confidant?!! Thank you x’s a million Mom for blessing me with your knowledge, love, and friendship!
