Once a month, I would like to do a monthly feature called, "Support Handmade". As a crafter, bracelet maker and Etsy Shop owner, I think that it's important to support fellow crafters. I love that handmade goodies are one-of-a-kind and that someone out there actually took the time & effort to create something! Who wants something that is mass produced, when they can get something that is handcrafted with love? In this monthly feature, I'd like to introduce a handmade shop, do a review on their products & share a few of my favorites with you!
I actually met Marcy, the girl behind isshou no yakusoku, through my brother Bryson. They have both been very close friends for many years. While they share a love for cars, Marcy & I both share a love for making handmade bracelets. Come to think of it, that is how our friendship formed, we both found something we had in common: BRACELET MAKING! I love that even though we both make & sell bracelets, we aren't competitive... Instead we are very supportive of one another and encourage the other to do well! If I ever need advice, I know I can always count on her and I hope she knows that she can count on me as well!
(My INY Collection)
To say that I am a huge fan of isshou no yakusoku is an understatement! When Marcy first started making her beautifully handcrafted bracelets, I was instantly hooked! I knew I needed every single style she came out with, in just about every color! I think I have succeeded so far, but my INY Collection is forever growing!
The isshou no yakusoku shop currently has 8 different styles available: The Himtsu ($13.00 USD), The Gold Himitsu ($15.00 USD), The Yume Triple Wrap ($28.00 USD), The Hoshi ($15.00 USD), The Kibo ($18.00 USD), The Takara ($16.00 USD), The Tamashii 2.0 ($32.00 USD) & the Friendship Bracelet ($30.00 USD). She also has Arm Party Sets ($60.00 USD) available. Each set includes 1 Tamashii 2.0, 1 Friendship Bracelet & 1 Gold Himitsu.
It is hard for me to choose a favorite, I have so many! I guess if I had to choose, I am currently loving the Arm Party Set, The Kibo & The Takara in Antique Ivory! There's just something so beautiful when Ivory & Gold are paired together. Everything else comes in at a VERY CLOSE second! I have so many isshou no yakusoku bracelets and love that I can wear each style alone, paired or stacked among many other bracelets to make up a fun arm party!
If you get a chance, be sure to stop by isshou no yakusoku's Etsy Shop! I promise you won't be disappointed & I'd be very surprised if you leave her shop empty handed! You'll have to let me know what your favorites are from her shop! Also, be sure to check out her blog to see what she's been up to & say "hi" to her on twitter as well!
