When Sunny Arada stepped on the starting line when she was 9 years old, she had no idea where her passion for running would take her. Fast forward to her senior in high school, she learned how to make jewelry from start to finish in a 3D art class using basic silversmith tools. Her passion for running continued on through college where she competed as a NCAA Division I track and field runner at Fresno State. She competed as a sprinter, running the 100m dash, 200m dash, 400m dash, and the 400m hurdles. Her love for making jewelry continued as she studied business and fashion merchandising as an undergraduate and selling her art at local artist events in her hometown.
After college she began running marathons and half marathons and also competed in a number of road races and cycling challenges. She entered the MBA program filled with her new passion for longer distance running. Her life changed while in the MBA program where she was assigned to come up with a fictitious business of what would be considered her “dream job”. Naturally, running and jewelry were the first to come to mind and Endure Jewelry was born. She first showcased her designs at the 2009 Two Cities Marathon, the same semester she was to complete her project. That December, at the end of the semester, she quit her desk job and decided to pursue Endure with her full heart, full-time.
And the rest is history…
Endure Jewelry can be found at a number of marathon and half marathon running expos and events. Our jewelry collections have been custom created for runners, by runners. Here on our website you will find necklaces, charms, pendants, rings, earrings, bracelets, and custom jewelry design services are available as well. We use the highest quality materials including sterling silver, which is dipped in a precious rhodium alloy to prevent our jewelry from oxidation. Our jewelry designs can also be ordered in 14k white gold, 14k rose gold, 14k yellow gold, 19k white gold (yes 19!), 18k rose gold, 18k yellow gold, and even platinum.

We believe that whether you run a sprint or a marathon, that your accomplishment deserves to be rewarded and that it should be rewarded with something that shines forever.
