About

how Meagan got her groove back

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved making play jewelry and could spend hours just looking at everything in the bead aisles in stores. I never put much thought into it, and as I grew, I was preoccupied with school, friends, work, etc... until one day, after leaving ANOTHER dead-end job, I went home feeling frustrated, stressed out, and most of all, unfulfilled. After having a good long cry (and a few glasses of wine), I spied an old bead box in the garage (which we have now converted into what I lovingly call "the craft dungeon" - my office and workspace) and I made a couple necklaces. It had completely de-stressed me, and I started to get a ton of compliments on the necklaces I had made, and I thought "Hey, maybe there's something to this!" I went out to Michael's, bought some basic jewelry supplies, and went to town. I was so excited to have found something to take my mind off of the stress, and then I noticed a couple of my friends had Etsy shops of their own. I thought "I can do that!" and did the necessary research. I knew from the get-go that this would be a lot of work on my part, especially because I had never done anything like this before. I brought it up to my boyfriend, Shane, and he seemed more excited than me! From there I began working on my shop, but I didn't really know what I was doing. I felt like a fish out of water. But I persevered, kept looking online and into the Etsy community to find useful tips and other info to make my shop more of a success. I considered it to be a work in progress until after my first year (This January).
I recently did a complete overhaul on the shop & started using a homemade light box, and I could not be prouder of the results!
BaubleHeadz has come such a long way in the last 13 months. I now do this full-time (and I am so lucky and grateful to have a loving man who cheers me on and supports me every step of the way) and I wouldn't have it any other way! I am currently working on a deal to get my jewelry into a salon back in my hometown (which is huge for me). New opportunities are being offered each day, and they never would have been if I hadn't pursued something I now realize is my passion!
Thank you, Etsy!
