He had finished law school, but had no enthusiasm for practicing. I started that career by family tradition but what I liked was fashion. So I packed the bag and studied fashion design for two years. It didn’t take me long to start working in the shoemaking sector, the one that appealed to me the most.
Everything was going too fast and I found myself opening my own shop where I would also sell some of my own designs. But that adventure ended too soon because the crisis caught us head-on. And so I was a few years out of the fashion business, taking advantage of my training in law. But the bug kept biting me, and I told myself I was going to try again. And here I am, putting the last wickers of my dream in two parts.
But this time I’ll make it all a little more modest, at least to begin with. Instead of a store I have a showroom and I sell mostly online. Despite this, I have reworked the image a lot with a new logo for the firm that decorates both the showroom and accessories. From my former collaborators I have taken the opportunity to get in touch with the Twisted Paper manufacturer who helped me with the paper bags. Because it is one thing to be modest and another not to be detailed.
I remember when I first opened the shoe store I put so much effort into the collection that I left some things a bit to chance. The economic part I did not work as I should have done and, little by little, I got into something that was unsustainable. And it is that everything counts when you open a business, from the cost of the bags of the Twisted Paper manufacturer to the sofas that decorate the store.
I hope this occasion is different. I know that the situation is difficult again, but that is why I have opted directly for the sale using digital channels apart from the sample that I will have periodically in the showroom. I trust that this time my dream really comes to fruition.
Making jewelry at home is a fun practice that also allows you to design your own decorations and combine them with your favorite clothes. It is a way to give way to creativity and, for some people, even a source of income by selling their creations on specialized pages for artisans.
There are also specialized pages on all kinds of beads and pieces to create jewelry. But other materials that are essential for this type of creations are also necessary, such as laces. There are a wide variety of types of jewelry cords, among which we can highlight three that are the most widely used.
Rubber cords for necklaces: Rubber cords are perfect for making all kinds of necklaces and chokers. They can be worn knotted, a very comfortable and economical solution when it comes to long necklaces that can be removed and put on without having to untie each time. But you can also put silver or other material closures so that they can be opened and closed easily. This type of necklaces allow a lot of variations and these rubber cords can even be used to make matching bracelets.
Elastic cords for bracelets: These cords allow you to make very basic bracelets that are usually intended for children or that are worn mainly in summer. All kinds of fancy beads can be inserted into the elastic cord and you get a bracelet that, once finished, is very easy to put on and take off and is also waterproof. It is perfect even for reusing beads from other pieces of jewelry that may have been broken, creating a new piece. They can be for both men and women depending on the type of pieces that are threaded. For example, for men’s bracelets, metal and wooden pieces are the most common. In the case of bracelets for women and children, pieces of glass or colored plastics are usually very successful.
Thread cords for knot jewelry: It is another variety of jewelry. These are bracelets and ornaments such as brooches made with cords tied together. All kinds of drawings are achieved by joining different colors and even very decorative figures for brooches are shaped. These laces are worked by very different methods, knotting alone or even combining knots with other techniques such as crochet.
