When my daughter Bailey was born in the fall of 2004, my husband and I became frustrated lugging a large photo brag book around New York City. There had to be a better, more fashionable way for us to show off our pride and joy.
Between "real" jobs in information technology and finance, I had dabbled as an amateur jewelry designer, creating many crystal and silver pieces. With guidance from a creative "mommy" friend, I learned techniques to incorporate photos into my designs.
My first photo charm bracelet received numerous compliments from friends and strangers during my strolls with Bailey around the Upper East Side. Compliments turned into demands -- friends insisted that I create bracelets of their children, too. I tweaked the original design, improved the quality of my materials, and had custom photo charms fabricated. Friends told friends about my bracelets, and so, Colette Creations was born.
In addition to being a mom, I continue to work at my "real" job as a mortgage broker at The Manhattan Mortgage Company. Colette Creations is my creative outlet. I look forward to suggestions on how I can creatively help you show off your pride and joy.
