Founded and created by Aly Silverio at the age of 15, Jawbreaking began as a handmade jewelry company to make some extra cash. She wasn't about the idea of getting a first "real" job. It started in her bedroom floor and a $5.00 toaster oven from Goodwill. Through trial and error and feedback from her friends, her designs and techniques improved. With limited funds, she utilized the power of social networking to promote Jawbreaking. Thank god for Twitter, right? Back then, she had no idea what she was doing with her life. There were no college plans or career ideas. But Jawbreaking continued to grow and she wanted it to be big.
