JJ Singh is about Passion! JJ's passion for metal ignited at 19 when she began her training with a successful goldsmith in Virginia. Continual refining led to her distinct and signature design aesthetic. The jewelry of JJ Singh is an immediately recognizable style defined by ancient influences applied with modern design interpretations. JJ's collections are available through fine jewelry retailers, and through the Virginia studio (by appointment) (jjsinghjewelry.com).

A special thanks to Cristina Dehart and Explore Modeling for taking on the immense task of hosting the contest on their website and their support and advice.
“I am honored to represent I AM Modern Magazine in celebrating women over 35.
Modern women today can do anything. I am a happily married, 40 year-old modern mom with two beautiful children.
I have been in the beauty industry for years and prior to that I was an educator. I have combined the two passions recently and started a website for women inspiring them to look and feel their very best (thehipchickonline.com).
My goal is to help woman achieve their ‘Over 40 Style’ through hair, skin, make-up, clothing tips thus reminding them 40 is fabulous!”
Kimberly Hudnall, 40
“I am honored to be able to represent “real housewives” and women over 40. My husband and I will be celebrating 17 years of marriage this year and are blessed to be the parents of 11 year-old boy/girl twins and a 9 year-old son. I love interior design and fashion and currently operate a small in-home preschool. I am passionate about nutrition and healthy living and strongly believe that it is important for women to have balance in their lives and to find something that they enjoy doing. I feel very grateful for the people in my life and I count my blessings everyday.”
Janelle Petrakis, 44
"When my children were young, I was a stay at home mom and did some modeling to make some extra money. When my kids were older I took a job with Southwest Airlines for both the travel and great benefits. Getting back into the work force at the age of 40 was not an easy task. I took an early retirement and now at the age of 50, started a new part time job as a receptionist. I’ve been married for 28 years (WOW!) and we have three grown children, Samantha 25, Andrew 23 and Danielle 20. I believe it is important to stay active and exercise. I enjoy meeting new people and giving it my all."
