About gingerlydesigns

Sales 3,748
On Etsy since 2008

Inspired, simple design

Gingerly was started in 2004 with just a website and a dream. I had signed up for school and registered for courses when something hit me; if I didn't take a chance on my dream now, when would I?

So I dropped the classes and sunk the money into registering my company and purchasing supplies.

Within a few years, I had dozens of stores carrying my line, local and national press and I had met some amazing people along the way.

Gingerly changed a bit when my husband and I started a family in 2011. I took a break while my little ones were babes, but now that they are a bit older, I'm feeling the creative process start to flow again. I've started selling online again (via Etsy this time!) and I'm excited for the new and inspired things that I get to create.

I love what I do I hope you do too.

    I've always had a stash of beads and jewelry parts hidden in all areas of my room while growing up. When other kids were out selling lemonade, I was going door to door selling my creations to anyone who would answer the door around my neighbourhood.
