Note from shop owner Hello dear friends and customers,

It is very bittersweet to tell you that Favoring Brave is closed and will not be reopening. I have loved serving you for the last 5 years, but just as it was the brave thing to start Favoring Brave when I did, it is now the brave thing to let it go. I will still be making and creating full time, but I felt the very strong pull to dedicate myself completely to growing my other company - Pink Salt Riot - which can be found here on Etsy at pinksaltriot.etsy.com, and at pinksaltriot.com. I will also still take custom orders on a limited basis, so feel free to message me through Pink Salt Riot for inquiries or email me at hello [!at] pinksaltriot.com.

Thank you again for your love and support over these last five years and I hope you continue to follow my work.

Jill

About

Literary trash to ecologically responsible treasures

FavoringBrave is the creative brainchild of Tulsa, OK artist Jill Simons. She began her crafty pursuits in 2005 making beaded jewelry to sell at a Farmer's Market while in high school and that venture morphed into a full time job as well as a shop in downtown Tulsa from 2012-2015. Jill makes every piece by hand out of old books that would otherwise be discarded by local schools and libraries. She stocks her online store, FavoringBrave, entirely with her own work and her commitment to bringing her customers high quality handcrafted goods has earned her repeat customers all over the Midwest.

OUR MISSION

FavoringBrave sets out to rescue lost books that just want to be loved again. From toddler shredded Dr. Seuss to high school libraries' discarded novels, FavoringBrave takes these books and gives them new life as one or more of our over 200 products made from recycled book parts and pages, including journals, shelves, cards, prints, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, charms, hair accessories, and much more. Each book is treated with love and respect and anything that is not used is recycled.

We want to encourage our customers to look for the socially and ecologically responsible ways to shop, and help them to see the potential in everyday things. With a little imagination, there is possibility everywhere. We are a home based business in Tulsa, OK and you can shop secure in the knowledge that you are personally supporting a full time artist who is living her childhood dream, and that you're hard earned money is staying right here, supporting the arts and helping to build our community.
