Created Beautifully was born unexpectedly.
What started as a search for nature's hidden beauty blossomed into this little company of mine.
After having been in retail as a visual merchandiser for several years, and putting my husband through nursing school, I longed to create beautiful things to share with others. I had always been crafty and my mom had taught me to sew when I was just a little girl. So I left retail and opened an etsy shop selling Bird Nest Jewelry and Fabric Bows. As my skills grew so did my reach. I grew a love for metal smithing, after much trial and error.
After a few years my work expanded to include hand made leather clutches, handbags and accessories. We started sourcing our leather from local upholestry shops and found that a wealth of beautiful leather just waiting to be utilized.
My sister Stephanie now works with me out of my home studios in the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Life is full of beauty - and we hope our designs can bring a little of it to your life.
