Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to.....
It's a new little venture that I've started with the help of my daughter Ryan. We love making bracelets together...love it, and have gotten numerous compliments on them....so, we've decided to start a business...a tiny one. :)
The name: If you know even just a bit of spanish, you'll recognize that madre y hija means mother and daughter. I thought this was fitting for a couple of reasons. The first is pretty obvious...as we're mother and daughter, but the second is where my mom comes into play. You see, I have this pretty amazing mother...who is this fiery woman who came to the United States from Mexico in her mid-20's...with the determination to do something, become someone, contribute something. I would have to say that she's done a wonderful job of accomplishing all of that...and she continues to do so everyday. Growing up, I remember her always being very crafty, and even as an adult, she and I have worked on numerous projects together. In fact, she's made me some pretty cool bracelets herself.
So in a way, madre y hija is symbolic of both my mother and I.....and now me and Ryan . Which is pretty cool.
The logo: I had this image in my mind of what I wanted the logo to look like. I mocked something up and then shared it with my dear friend Matt, who perfected it for me. A huge thank you to him. :)
The bracelets: They are all handmade, and no two are exactly alike. We are in constant search of new color combinations and new beads, etc.
How do you make one yours?: I'm in the process of setting up a shop on Etsy, but in the meantime, you are welcome to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll let you know once we're officially up and running on Etsy.
Pricing: Simple...one for $6...or two for $10.
