Tell us about your business.Susie and I hit it off from the moment we met and we both agreed that feet were kind of ugly. We came up with the idea of 'jewelry for your feet' and in 'designing' realized that these pieces of jewelry looked like sandals but were not! We flipped our feet over and we were still barefoot - BUT - the top of our feet looked like sandals were being worn. The rest is history!
What makes your business stand out?Our business is unique as it is truly our own idea. We have heard that decades ago something 'similar' was available, but this line is truly a labor of love and continual fresh ideas including the expansion of the line. We absolutely LOVE what we do and 'speak' daily in designing our expanded line for fundraisers, events, cruise lines, bands, etc. etc. Susie and I also agree to keep the hand made line stateside! Everyone is paid by us in the USA! They are mostly unemployed women, whom we now employ! Susie and I also continually donate back to organizations and individuals. Our business has grown 1000 fold since only last summer and we are so so proud of it! And we are Happy!
