My journey with Willow and Bee started when my kids were attending school. I was a stay at home mom volunteering at their parochial school. When I was asked to make some rosaries for the school auction, my passion to create was reignited! I started receiving custom orders for rosaries, jewelry, and headbands, so I finally decided it was time to launch my Etsy shop Willow and Bee in 2010. Since then I have sold to several boutiques and my First Communion pieces are sold at Von Maur in the early part of the year!
I was blogging about life in general at www.willowandbee.com for several years until I realized that perhaps it was better to keep that site as my jewelry/business site. If you’re looking to find out more about my jewelry, please visit me at www.willowandbee.etsy.com and I will continue to move life’s content onto www.marialaurin.com
