Like all of you, I like my accessories and I have always loved adding a bracelet or 2 to a outfit to finish it off. But for many years what I was finding in the stores was boring, poor quality and it took forever to get one to fit just right!
Sure, I could spend a boatload of cash on bracelets from high end designers and get something incredibly nice but I didn't have a boatload of cash! And I'm betting many of you don't either!
So, after being frustrated one too many times, I decided that I was going to make my own bracelets! That way I'd get exactly what I wanted. And that's exactly what I did.
Now, before you get the idea that this was easy, let me tell you that it wasn't! I can still vividly remember the day in 2011 when I took almost all of my savings out of the bank and placed my first large order with a leather supplier. After I sent the funds, all I could think of was ”OMG!! What Have I done?”
But I have to admit, even though I was still working a normal 9-5 job, having my own business had always been a dream for me. And now I was getting close to what I really wanted to do.
Once again, it wasn't easy. A lot of obstacles had to be met and overcome! Like dealing with suppliers, getting the right stock, choosing the right craft shows to go to and most of all making enough income so I could retire from my normal job and concentrate on doing what I have a burning passion for. And that's creating leather bracelets that when you wear them they can spark a conversation! After all, that's why we wear the things we do, right?
If you have any questions before placing an order, all you need to do is is send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
