How did you come up with your name?
I definitely wanted to include “garland” as a catching name for the necklaces and bracelets I make. With Grace being my middle name, the two came together as Garland: By Grace.
Is there a special meaning behind your name?
The Bible speaks of garland in the book of Proverbs. Referencing the blessing that comes with wisdom, Proverbs 4:9 says, “She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown." It has been special for me to reflect on this verse as I find my way in managing a small business, and seeking the wisdom it takes to operate Garland by Grace in a way that is pleasing and glorifying to the Lord.
What sets your designs apart from others?
My favorite part of designing my pieces is finding ways to combine modern trends with a classic feminine flare. Personally, I love anything vintage! Garland by Grace has a style mixed with pearls, cameos, and shiny metals combined with leather, brass and earthy tones too!I think jewelry is a great way to display individual personality.So, you’ll find many styles, inspired by the many differences in us all.The one thing I love more than a great piece of jewelry, is the person who inspires it!
What has been the most stressful part of your business?
I can easily say the most stressful part of Garland by Grace right now is fitting it in with my school schedule. I am finishing my senior year of high school and graduating in the fall.Some of my best ideas and designs come from brainstorming in study hall!
What is your favorite color?
That’s easy … blue! Being born and raised in Jacksonville, I love anything that reminds me of the river or the ocean!
Do you use your favorite color in your work often?
Yes.There is never a shortage of blue inventory at Garland by Grace!
What is your favorite piece of work and why?
Umm … all of them?!? My “Travel the World” pendants are special to me.I love watching someone’s face light up when they pick one up, remembering a special adventure they’ve had. I love even more when they tell me about where they’ve traveled! They’re a fun conversation piece, and great gift, too!
What is your favorite quote and why?
My favorite saying has always been, “You will never regret being kind.” It’s straight, simple, and to the point. It is also such a great reminder that no matter the circumstances, being kind is always the best thing you can do, for yourself and everyone around you!
Will you be offering anything special for shoppers that will be attending the HC Holiday Market, December 2 at the Morocco Shrine Center?
I’m excited to offer a $5 Make and Take activity for kids! Having little sisters of my own, and a love for teaching kids, I am looking forward to helping some kids make their own necklace at the event. Kids can have a seat, choose a sticker or to decorate their pendant, stick it together (with a little help from us!), add it to a chain and wear it home. I hope a lot of cute little crafters visit our booth!
Is there anything you would like the public to know about you?
I love Jacksonville! Having grown up here and starting my business at a young age, I love and appreciate all of the encouragement and support that my community has given me. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the event!
