Excellent service & fast shipping! It was a treat to receive it so quickly in the mail. Packaged like a gift to myself!! I love it doubled it for a chunkier look.

About

Nothing Fancy, But It's Mine <3

Pilboxx came to be in the form of CarrieCreative, my first shop name that I started back in 2011. (I later changed the name in 2013 when my daughter was born and fell in love with the idea of using one of her nicknames for my shop, in case you're wondering where that came from.) By that time, I was in school, getting a degree in Medical Administration. I had my son in 2008 and having a hard time trying to find a job locally. I was frustrated and decided to think outside of the box with ways to earn money for my son and I (he was 3 at the time). My husband was working, but I wanted to find a way to contribute, so I got into making jewelry. I've always been a pretty creative person (hence, the cringe-worthy first title of my shop) and thought it would be exciting and intriguing to see if anyone would even be interested in buying things that I had created, but it was worth the shot.

I will always remember the feeling of my first sale and what I did when I saw it (lots of jumping for joy, many squeals of happiness, over a $12 pair of lamp work glass heart earrings that I had wire wrapped). I immediately ran to package them up beautifully in my excitement. But that was the moment that really pushed me to keep learning and making new things.

I am so grateful for my customers and their support. I am always striving to make things that people will actually enjoy wearing. Especially when I get custom requests and orders for weddings. I love being a part of their vision and making it come to life. That's really what I love most about this little shop. The people and what they want.

This year, a few pieces that I made were borrowed for a movie with Jon Heder and Amy Sedaris called Ghost Team. It was an amazing experience. There's nothing like watching a movie, seeing something you made, and saying "I made that! That's mine!". Best. Feeling. Ever.

I work from home in central California. I don't have a fancy office space to go off to during the day. I don't even have a designated room in my house for my work. I literally work in the living room at a fold-able table near a window with some make-shift shelves that my husband built for me. I ship packages from here, photograph my jewelry from here, edit photos, respond to customers and design from here. Absolutely nothing glamorous about it. But it's mine. ;)

I'm very proud of what I have accomplished with Pilboxx in the past 5 years. I've come a very long way from where I started and I'm just so grateful for what I have been able to do with this shop and for what it's given my family. Thank you to everyone that has purchased from me, favorited my shop, shared my items, even come here to read about little ole me - I'm so eternally grateful. :)
