About HappyLittleLovelies

Sales 4,854
On Etsy since 2010

How we got started in this world of handmade creations

It all started in the hot summer of 2010. My husband, a math teacher at the time, had lost his summer job and we were in the hardest financial period of our lives. I was also a teacher with an independent streak, a little dream and terrible timing.

"So what do you think about me quitting my job and maybe opening an etsy shop?" --said the girl with terrible timing.

And on July 21, 2010 we took a huge risk and clicked "publish." Four days later I had my first sale and each time one came in, I remember the giddiness of oh my gosh, this is happening! Happy Little Lovelies celebrated it's 5th birthday in July of 2015 and I'm still in awe. Sometimes our greatest gifts in life start out of a hot mess.

Of course, in five years we have certainly changed and grown a lot. I'll spare you the pictures of our first pieces (you're welcome), but our vision has stayed the same. The heart of Happy Little Lovelies is to create custom pieces that honor women for being fully themselves. You are more than than what's common and mass-produced. Our jewelry aims to celebrate that through vibrant colors, textures and spunky originality.

Creating and being my own boss while getting to stay home with my kids has been such an amazing gift, but not far behind that are the stories that I've gotten to be a part of. From adoption auctions (my personal favorite) to weddings (and some funerals) to pampering non-profit organizers overseas and benefit fundraisers, this has been the happiest surprise. I had no idea that something as simple as a handmade necklace could reach into these sacred places and create a difference. I'm so grateful to be allowed that opportunity.

We are thrilled to be creating and would love to have one of our pieces become a part of your story as well.
