Breezy Days: Breezy Bee

Breezy Bee

When I was in elementary school, I had a little business called "Bri's Jewelry".
I carried around a box full of the jewelry I had made at home with my Costco jewelry pack my parents had gotten me, and would sell my products to fellow classmates.
You know, cause that's normal to do in the 3rd grade.
Of course I got in trouble for promoting a business on school grounds.
So that closed up shop right quick.

Then in sixth grade I started a business called "Juicy Purses".
I made purses out of Kool-Aid packaging.
My uncle even made me business cards!!
I eventually got burned out when I started shipping to out of state customers, because it was a lot of effort for a little middle schooler!

I've always had a passion for creating and for being a business woman.
I'm starting small, but I'm stoked to open up Breezy Bee Jewelry on Big Cartel.
I had a previous stint with Etsy that I wasn't too excited about, so I'm anxious to see what my new little online shop can accomplish!

I am only posting 5 items at a time.
Meaning that they are my 5 best items, of the best quality, with the most love & care put into each and every piece :)
I can also do custom orders :)

<3 Bri

You totally rock! I'm always so impressed when people start up little businesses, this is fantastic!

In grade 5 I sold friendship bracelets to classmates for 25 cents to 2$ each and took custom colours desgins etc, and raised i think about 200$ for the MS society of canada. So I totally get the being a mini entrepreneur at a young age - I've been planning smthing myself recently :$ !

Hi Bri! I just found your blog and love it! I'm Bri too!

LOVE!!! So cute! I used to make jewelry in high school and sold stuff to a chick who operated a mall kiosk, it was so much fun and I have been thinking of revisiting that but I dont know how to make a whole lot of stuff so my "designs" would be super repetitive.

If we lived in the same town we could go to those jewelry making conventions! AHHH I die! Now I totally want to do that!

xo Good luck with your shop, you are gonna be a success! I just know it!

I started my first business in the third grade making homemade crafts and later on moved up to making buttons for football games, etc.

I've tried my hand at jewelry, but not as talented in that area.

I own rental properties, now, but hey it all started in the third grade!
