Tell us about your business.

Uni Q Creations is a family based business that makes everything by hand. It began with a love of crafting and evolved into a business in 2010. I'm a mom of 3 boys diagnosed with Autism. Therapies and time constraints made it difficult to work outside the home so I decided to open an Etsy Shop and sell my handmade jewelry. My process is to put new things out constantly and make something different everyday. My husband and children have now become involved and are creating things of their own. My business has evolved so much already since I first started and I only expect it to keep evolving in the future. We started with jewelry and are now beginning to add accessories and home decor as well. It only gets better from here. Thank you.

What makes your business stand out?

My business is unique because it's a little bit of everything and not a lot of anything, all rolled into one spot.

What's the best business advice you've received?

The best business advice I've received is do what you love and love what you do. The rest will fall into place.
