While trying to steal Joanna Gaines’ style, I stumbled upon this cute Wisconsin shop called Daintily Designs. Shop owner, Jacqueline, creates customized leather bracelets with hidden messages inside. Joanna would definitely approve. Bracelets can be made for men, women, and children in a variety of sizes. You can add a charm, initials, GPS coordinates, an inspirational message – basically whatever your heart desires – to create a custom bracelet just for you.
What inspired your shop’s name?
I initially started my shop making small, dainty pieces of jewelry of my own designs, and I thought the word “daintily” was cute and fitting. I eventually transitioned into personalized leather bracelets with a “hidden” message on the inside and considered a name change until a friend said my shop name made her think of me. “You’re a dainty person, and like doing small intricate work with your fingers..and you’re making your own custom designs!” So I decided to keep it, especially since I already had a following after being featured in various locations within Etsy.
Here are some of my favorite bracelets available in the shop. Jacqueline loves custom orders, so don’t limit yourself to what you see. The charm wrap bracelets are my favorite! Adding it to my wishlist. Now.
How long does it take to make a bracelet?
Depending on which piece it’s typically 30-45minutes.
Favorite part of the business?
Making custom, meaningful pieces for someone and hearing how when they (or the recipient) opened their package it made their eyes well up reading the personalized message on the inside of the bracelet. 🙂
This particular Hidden Message Leather Bracelet is a bestseller in the shop because it was featured in US Weekly’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. How cool is that!?
