I simply adore coming across unique and beautiful items of all kinds, especially when browsing Etsy. Being and artisan myself, I appreciate all the careful planning, hard work, and thoughtful touches that typically are portrayed when something is handmade. And speaking of my previous appreciation of the art and artist, I’d like to spotlight Quiet Mischief and Company. This artisan meets and exceeds all my likes and loves when it comes to uniquely beautiful handcrafted wares.
Quiet Mischief and Company recently was kind enough to provide a Mother and Daughter matching set of Japanese styled kumihimo bracelets for us to enjoy and share our thoughts upon. I thought it was pretty fun to get a set in this style because my Grandma is full blooded Japanese and that makes me about quarter but I still love everything Japanese!
I must declare that this set of bracelets is truly one of a kind. Never have my daughter and I owned a matching set and we are thrilled to say this is our first! The colors are so beautiful and dare I say it these almost seem to shimmer in the light! Each bracelet is very strong and there’s been no fear of wear and breaking. We both think they are amazing and wouldn’t hesitate to get more in this style from Quiet Mischief! In fact my daughter whom is turning five years old in about week is quite the little fashionista and is already telling my color combinations that would work with her wardrobe! I would gladly not mind ordering because I know these bracelets will last.
About Quiet Mischief…
Quiet Mischief was born and continues to grow due to opportunities disguised as misfortunes. In late 2009 while on an internship in Florida Michele came down with the H1N1 virus and was put in respiratory isolation. By the time she was allowed to leave her room, she had made so manybracelets that she started an Etsy shop to get rid of some of them. She continued to spend much of her time on the shop after her internship was over as her increasing struggles with depression and anxiety made her wary to get a job. As a result (and with her sister joining her with duct tape crafts in early 2010), her shop gained in popularity, and she was soon bringing in enough to pay the bills. In late summer 2012 trouble struck again; her bracelets became so popular that Michele was at risk for carpel tunnel and had to take a six-week break from knotting. However, since she couldn’t keep herself from crafting, she taught herself the Japanese braiding technique known as kumihimo, which was much easier on her wrists and allowed her to use some new luxury materials. Now Michele makes both kumihimo and regular friendship bracelets, always focusing on great color combinations, beautiful patterns (many of which she designs herself), and additions such as charms that make her bracelets unique.
I like that Quiet Mischief offers a wide variety of unique fashion accessories. And the fact they’ve taken something as simple as duct tape and made such wonders is truly impressive! The products they specialize in our friendship bracelets of all kinds, duct tape accessories, rings, and necklaces. The color availability is candy to the eyes, especially the rainbow selection! I’m a huge lover of color so this store is totally one of my favorites! I found the prices to be quite affordable and they also are willing to take custom orders too!
Quiet Mischief recently launched a Kick Starter that I urge you to check out and support! They are trying to earn funds to launch ” Not Your Usual Duct Tape Crafts – The Christmas Book”. Even if crafting with duct isn’t your thing, perhaps this would make a wonderful gift for someone else you know. And maybe you’ll even discover that you can easily make such wonders yourself! I know I plan on backing and supporting this book myself. And remember even if you only give just a dollar, every bit counts!
