Jill, the creator of Favoring Brave, turns old damaged books that would otherwise be thrown in the trash into works of art. She creates one-of-a-kind jewelry and home decor items with the books she rescues. A little fact about me – I love to read and Nancy Drew was my absolute favorite when I was a little girl. And look what I found at Favoring Brave!! My nerdy side is loving these so much. All of the pieces Jill creates are made from real books, not copies. No impostors here!
What’s the story behind your shop name?
The name Favoring Brave came out of the bravery it took to quit my full time job without a safety net and go all in on my dream of owning a handmade company that would give me a sustainable creative and free life. It was touch and go for awhile there, but I am happy to report that it worked! Now I try and use my brand to encourage others to be brave about their dreams in their own lives.
What is your favorite part of the business?
I love making things! I have had to force myself to the learn the accounting, marketing, etc. that it takes to run a business, but it has always been so worth it because it allows me to make things every day!
What is your favorite piece?
I love my “Read books” earrings. They go straight to my roots. I started all this because of how much books were a constant and beautiful part of my life.
