kiddie_name_cuff




My son is always asking me to make him some jewelry. In the past I've just thrown something little together for him to play around in, but now that I am working with wool, I've been throwing around some ideas with him in mind. This is a name bracelet that I made for him. I kept it really basic in order to make it as sturdy as possible since he loves to take it off and put it back on all by himself. I could probably shrink it down even more (with a smaller snap perhaps) to make it even more scaled for his little wrist.
I made a pink one as a gift for a neighbor girl (with her name on it) who just turned 3 and I've been thinking it might be fun to offer these custom KIDDIE_Cuffs exclusively through my etsy shop - so that I can try to bring the price down -(closer to a wholesale price since I wouldn't retail them anywhere else)- and into a more reasonable range for "childware". I could offer them in the same colors that I've selected for the HIVE cuffs. My question is, would anyone buy these? ... and, how much would one pay for such a thing? Maybe they are simply destined to be special gifts for friends.......
Since he was such a good sport to model for me, I tought I'd include a shot of my son in his bat costume. He can't wait to go trick or treating!

I would definitely buy one for Ave. Love that their name is on it and that they can "do it themselves"!

I would buy some of these for my kids. they are a perfect idea.

[by the way, my daughter [then 3] picked out one of your HIVE necklaces for my mothers day gift last year. I love it and constantly get compliments.]

I would! we were looking to buy something similar to Eeli before we came there. Something with his name (and a phone number) on it! I think this is a good idea for kids! And to seniors as well - why not;)?
