handmade jewelry with a message.
About 3 years ago, my husband gave me a wonderful bracelet with my kids' names on it. It was much more expensive than I thought it should be. For some reason, I decided I could make it myself much cheaper. After more hours than I can count (and I'm a math teacher - ha!) practicing, learning, and creating, I was finally able to make a product I was proud of.
I began making jewelry as gifts for friends, family and neighbors when one of my friends suggested I sell on etsy. I opened up in 2010 but I was only able to have my shop "open" for small periods of the year while I worked full time. My occupation is in education - I am a high school math teacher. My preoccupation became making jewelry. I love creating, playing, and working with metal. This year, I am devoting myself to my etsy shop full time while I take a sabbatical from teaching and stay home with my young crazy kids. Since teaching is my passion, I specialize in gifts for teachers. Check out my shop to find a special personalized gift for your favorite teacher.
I chose the name mottolove because I love the idea that jewelry can be a conversation starter...a way to express your mood...a political statement...a talisman...or just a reminder to smile. That's the idea behind my pieces. I hope you enjoy looking at them - and wearing them - as much as I enjoy making them.
