Today, I am excited to introduce to you a local mompreneur who creates the some amazing jewelry! Renell Good is a talented artist who has recently started Forme Designs. Forme Designs was built out of a hobby, but then she had lots of people complimenting her work. So, she decided to build a business out of it. She loves being able to do what she loves while still being a full-time mom of two little girls. Renell says, "Creating my jewelry is my 'for me' time- hence the name, Forme Designs (although it is pronounced for-meh). I work on it when my girls are napping or playing."
I met Renell through our local MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group. We were both on the board of different chapters in our town, and we would collaborate on joint events for the community. Then, several months ago during one of my craft classes that I teach at Dahlia Floral Design I was teaching how to make leather wrapped beaded bracelets like the ones you see in Sundance Catalog. She caught right on to the technique and kept on creating even more beautiful designs. I LOVE these kinds of stories. I think it is so encouraging to other mothers to do what you love & then to move forward with it. I hope her story inspires all of you to create something 'For You'.
"My desire is to encourage people to consider handcrafted and local items in their purchases. There is such a unique story to that type of item. My story shows individual detail- no piece of my jewelry is quite like another I make. There's no mass production in Forme Designs!"
