Welcome to the Needle's Haystack Online Marketplace, where fashion connoisseurs find the season's newest, limited edition handcrafted jewelry made by the gifted hands of America’s finest designers.
The Beginnings Stephen Lehn, now CEO of Needle's Haystack, was searching for the perfect birthday gift for his mother. By chance, he stumbled across a talented jewelry designer working from her home in Dallas. Talking with her, Stephen was surprised to discover that this designer's successful history included creating designs for a national luxury retailer. Intrigued, he wanted to know in what other ways she publicized her designs. Aside from word of mouth, she expressed disappointment because there were not any accessible markets solely focused on jewelry. At that moment, inspiration struck and the idea for Needle's Haystack was born. After recruiting David Ganc, a best friend since childhood and now COO of Needle's Haystack, the two decided to create the only marketplace devoted entirely to talented American jewelry designers and their one-of-a-kind jewelry.
