A writer by heart, I began beading when I reached a point in writer's block for which there seemed no cure. I stopped writing and self-publishing to take a break and began to make bracelets as a way to occupy both my hands and my brain with things not related to words.
Well, it turned out I had a knack for designing unique pieces and sold a couple of dozen pieces in the first few months of my launch almost a year ago!
The old name of my business (writerofwordsjewelry) didn't spread much joy and love, to my customers or to myself, so I returned to my words and created Boldly Chic Boutique.
I design handmade jewelry with beads, healing crystals and accessories in my home office in the Greater Toronto Area. My collection is growing constantly, and I take an active interest in themed pieces. I make diffuser bracelets, necklaces with pendants, charms or healing crystals, and a variety of earrings. I also began creating some pouches for healing crystals, inspired by my brother's cancer diagnosis. A friend who tragically lost her son saw the pouch I created for my brother and asked me to make one for her rose quartz crystal and a new line of accessories was born into my business.
I live on a property filled with birch trees, which is why I am able to collect discarded birch bark and use it for a variety of decorative uses. Most recently during my tarot readings, I've written secret notes on birch bark during manifestation meditation for myself, or clients. If you'd like to use birch bark for personal use, I have several baggies prepared for sale and listed in my shop.
