About

tangled shoebox

Tangled Shoebox was born from a daydream, while sitting in an office meeting.

Throughout the years, I had made different pieces of jewelry, mostly when I couldn't find in stores what I was picturing in my mind. This turned into making some pieces for gifts, as well. After being asked where I got what I was wearing and a couple of bridal party requests, I thought it would be fun and challenging to open an online shop for my handmade products.

I took a jewelry-making class to help fine-tune my skills and learn new techniques. I brainstormed for a bit to try and think of a unique name for my little shop and came up with tangled shoebox. I love the movie Home Alone and there is a scene where Kevin's Mom is pleading with an older couple about giving the lady her earrings in exchange for her plane ticket and the lady's husband replied with, "She's got her own earrings, a whole shoebox full of them...dangly ones." That got me thinking. I had a shoebox with jewelry in it, as well as other sentimental odds and ends, like ticket stubs and little sweet notes, etc... from when my husband and I were dating. All of these mixed together, or rather tangled, in a shoebox. This was the start of the shop.

I listed some jewelry pieces, but as time passed, I really wanted to add a variety of products to tangled shoebox. I learned some photoshop skills from my incredible Dad and shortly put some prints in my shop. I also went on to take a series of sewing classes and have been enjoying listing different zippered pouches and bags, as well. My favorite type of orders are custom orders. I get such satisfaction creating a product specifically tailored for a customer. Giving them exactly what they're looking for. I think that's what makes Etsy such a unique and wonderful marketplace.

For those interested, I have another Etsy shop {www.pakamonk.etsy.com}
