Nothing catches the eye or completes and outfit like a great piece of jewelry.
I recently had the pleasure of being introduced to designer and founder of Belvoir Handmade, Ashley Bauer. Her designs immediately capture attention.
The Bracelets, named after Ashley's days at John Carroll University, are fashion forward, stylish and affordable. Each piece of handmade art jewelry, featuring unique stones, showcases the skill of the artist while making a unique statement of style.
While shopping Ashley spotted a bangle bracelet and decided she could create something even better. She began designing jewelry for her own use. After being asked by several woman where she got her bracelet, she decided to share her creation. This gave her the motivation to launch her own jewelry business.
Designing and making the jewelry is only one facet of starting a business. Ashley's next challenge was how to market her product.
A pivotal point in her business came , when fate intervened. After a flight delay, Ashley ended up sitting next to an extremely successful, high end retail business owner. After showing him what she had so far, he encouraged Ashley and felt she really had something. He inspired Ashley to work hard towards her dream.
With her artistic eye, Ashley can create a “Stack” for any occasion by mixing the bracelets. These stacks can be custom designed for bridal parties.
The bracelets are addictive. If you start with just one, you find the urge to add more to your collection.
On a customer service note, the jewelry purchased online, is promptly shipped and very well packaged.
