Hi! My name is Bonnie, and I'll be personally making every piece of jewelry you order... right here in my home studio. I am a single mom to 4 little ones, and I do not have a full-time "staff". So, every message, every paper, every piece and communication is from me. Thanks for your patience - I work hard every day to forge your unique, custom pieces both as quickly as possible as well as giving each one the special attention it, and you deserve =)
COME VISIT MY STUDIO & TINY RETAIL STORE IN UNIVERSITY PLACE, WA.
HOURS ARE BY APPOINTMENT, PLEASE CALL OR TEXT 253.202.1500.
In the Beginning...
Birth Designs was founded in 2001 when leading up to the birth of my first child, I could not find the jewelry or greeting card designs I wanted in order to express the joy I was feeling. Later, I was again frustrated when I could not find a quality "nursing necklace" (a necklace worn when breastfeeding or bottle-feeding a child to help distract and entertain little hands). My passion renewed as I began researching and testing different stones, designs, and stringing materials that were suitable for nursing necklaces.
A Dream Begins
It began small, with blogs, being featured on Etsy's front page, and indie artisan groups. In the past five years, Birth Designs has been featured on Stylebakery.com's Designers on the Rise, in PARENTS Magazine, PARENTING Magazine, Tips 'n Trends, EastWest Magazine, Midwifery Today, Complete Mother, The New Yorker, Seattle Child, Parent Map, WickedlyChic, SHEfinds & more! Our designs can be seen on celebrities and we've been featured in several LA fashion shows. We've also been spotlighted on over 100 blogs and counting. We're always looking for new retailers to carry our products - both brick-and-mortar and online boutiques.
