It is so fun when I get to feature a company that has a truly wonderful story. Today I want to introduce you to a product that was born in the mind of a teenage girl with big dreams and realistic needs, like a car!
Isabella needed money to buy a car, in 2010 this amazing 14 year old started designing charm necklaces for everyone she loved. Origami Owl is a wonderful way to create a very personal treasure. Origami Owl’s motto, “if you can dream it, you can do it”. :-) Sounds magical right?!
I’ve been so blessed to be given one of these memory keepsakes. My charm holds my boys birth stones which Noah actually plays with and asks about, so I get to tell him, this necklace is for you and Nicholas and that dangle is yours :-) He grins and feels as special as I do wearing my Origami Owl charm necklace.
For Mother’s Day, take some time to make your mother a sweet charm necklace showing off all her grand kids OR make one for yourself exactly the way you want it. Every locket tells a story. Show yours off. Create something vintage, I love it! Go classic or specific in a hobby like music? Charms for everything!!! First Communion, graduation, awesome bridesmaid gifts! With 3 fun exciting steps and loads of options you will shock yourself with your creativity!
“ These are just the most adorable pieces of jewelry we’ve seen in a long time! What a great way to make memories from the birth of a child, to mothers day, to birthdays, graduations, sweet 16, marriage, engagement, basically everyday!!”
BED: Were so happy you are here to talk about Origami Owl with our readers! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and Origami Owl?
Jacki: I would love to! Origami Owl was founded by a 14 year old entrepreneur. Inspired by the desire to create jewelry that would be beautiful, meaningful, whimsical and fun, Isabella Weems and her mother launched the company with the goal of saving enough money to buy her first car. In 2010 she introduced the “Living Locket”, a necklace that can be customized with meaningful charms that represent things that are important to you. From the companies beginnings at home parties, the success of Origami Owl quickly grew in fanfare and today Weems’ business model is replicated by Independent Designers nationwide. “Women absolutely love creating unique pieces of jewelry that reflect their own style. We closely follow the latest styles to ensure that each item in our exclusive line is fashion-forward and on-trend,” said Isabella Weems, Origami Owl’s Founder.
BED: What exactly does an “Independent Designer” do?
Jacki: Origami Owl Custom Jewelry, a fun and fashionable direct sales company with a unique twist. As an Independent Designer with Origami Owl, I hold events or do one on one consultations where I help my customers create one-of-a-kind personalized jewelry that best reflects their style. You know, kind of like build-a-bear for us!
BED: That is such an amazing and inspiring story! Tell our readers what makes Origami Owl unique?
Jacki:Origami Owl is unique because it lets you completely personalize your creation. You create your jewelry; you can add, change or remove our charms from a locket at any time!
