Creating an online business and need help figuring out the best steps to take with your brand, website, or digital products? You’re at the right place.

Who is Jewels Branch?

Jewels Branch is Christie and Jamie Halmick, a wife and husband team. We’ve made a career and life out of our online businesses and that’s what we’d like to help you do, too!

Jamie & Christie

Over the past 20 years we've helped businesses big and small communicate.

We've been behind the scenes providing branding, design, marketing and tech support for projects like these: social networks for best selling authors, websites for up-and-coming health coaches, sold out events for marketing consultants, e-commerce sites for fashion lines, and more.

... and ...

We've been front and center in our own businesses, Jewels Branch and Tinkerbuilt, creating courses for entrepreneurs who like to DIY and designing and developing custom iPhone apps.

We bring all our experiences and skills to our courses and clients.
