CEO AriAnna or most of you may have known her formerly as 2JZGRL!
Arianna grew up in Chesterfield, MO at Gateway Motorsports Raceway and started driving at the age of 8. Her father had a TVR Tuscan (which was her first inline 6 and manual car she learned to drive on), a Pantera along with a few other fun cars.
We'll let her tell the rest of the story:
"I was 13 years old when I took my first pass down the track and was hooked..literally and figuratively. Throughout the years I participated in drag racing, then auto cross, road racing, and finally drifting. At the age of 21 I made the journey to the West Coast to pursue the automotive world. From 2013-2018 I partially owned/managed a professional Formula Drift team and performance shop as well as growing Garage Girls Jewelry. I have since managed other Formula Drift teams, SCCA teams, pursued the exotic world as a specialist for Ferrari/Maserati, and now own a creative business / manufacturing consulting firm.
I had been searching for years for automotive themed jewelry & accessories for women. I found close to nothing when it came to rings, necklaces, and accessories. I decided to take it upon myself to make my own line of jewelry & accessories for women and men! I'm proud to say this business (that started out as a personal hobby) has grown into something I never thought possible. I strive to provide the best quality from my handmade pieces as well as from my manufacturers. Most of my products are hand made by me. This has also become my creative outlet away from my other business endeavors. I enjoy promoting a healthy, supporting, and uplifting role as a woman in the motorsports community. Also, I thought it was unfair that guys had all the cool gear!
The Garage Girls team is growing, I'm proud to say that we're continuing to expand day by day! In addition to creating jewelry, accessories, apparel and more, we provide a safe community space for women in the automotive industry to share their passions and creativity. Please feel free to join our community HERE.
Thank you so much for supporting my small business.
In doing so, you're supporting a dream.
