About GutsyGoodness

Sales 14,903
On Etsy since 2015

Can Jewelry Really Have a Purpose?

✿ BEHIND THE SCENES

Joel and Lisa are a husband and wife team who began their shop in 2015. Lisa sold jewelry from her locker in junior high to clothing boutiques in her hometown of Eugene, Oregon through her college days. When she moved to San Diego in 1992 she was still creating unique items from the room she rented while working at a non-profit organization. But all that changed a year later.

✿ WORKING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY

Life pivoted in 2015 when Joel, an audio editor for a video game company, was laid off his job of 19 years. Lisa had recently purchased some jewelry supplies to make a few pendant necklaces for herself and gifts.

The expense of living and taking care of unpredictable medical bills from Lisa's rheumatoid arthritis, hit their household quickly and Joel and Lisa looked closely at everything from their skills to limitations, and asked how God how He might use them. They decided to open an Etsy store in hopes that it would assist their family during this career transition season.

They are humbled to say that Gutsy Goodness now has a small team of employees in our hometown who assist us in making and packaging your jewelry.

We hope that whatever item you choose for yourself or a loved one, you can feel the joy and love that goes behind it. We make a special effort to create not just a piece of jewelry, but an entire package that reminds you that you are loved.
