Cyrese & Co. opened its doors in Kingwood in July 2005 as a boutique offering custom jewelry handmade by owner Cyrese Jezek.

An interior designer by trade who managed a design shop with a friend, Jezek started to teach herself how to bead and make jewelry in 1993.

“People always say my taste is really different,” Jezek said of her boutique’s jewelry and clothing selections.

A friend sold her jewelry at a consignment shop in Kingwood, which Jezek said gave her the confidence to go out and sell her designs on her own. Her craftwork was featured in boutiques on Westheimer Road and in The Galleria mall, and when she saw a space for lease on Kingwood Drive in Kingwood, she and her sister-in-law signed up for it and called the store Cyrese & Co.

“We had to buy clothes to display the jewelry on, so we started building up our selection of clothing for the 30 [and older] crowd,” Jezek said. “We would try different things, and if [an item] didn’t work, we would stop carrying [it].”

On Monday through Friday, Jezek and a team of four women who cover for her on a rotation greet local residents and out-of-town visitors entering the store. Jezek said most customers are looking for something affordable and different.

Over the years Jezek said she has listened to customers when they request different lines of clothing or accessories. Joy Hundley, an employee who has worked at the boutique for nine years, said the merchandise sells quickly.

“For 13 years I’ve always been the buyer at market, picking the clothes and accessories to sell at our boutique,” Jezek said. “What we have is a little bit different, not something you could get at the mall, and I wanted to offer things in the mid-price range.”

Jezek said the best part about setting up shop in the Kingwood community is that it is a populated area with a small-town feel.

“You see the same people every day; they have their routines,” Jezek said. “Everybody’s just so friendly. I want to make sure everyone leaves here happy.”
