I love finding new lines and bringing them to LBD. On a recent trip to New York I came across 2 ladies selling a jewelry line called Bourbon and Boweties. Something in the back of my mind registered that a customer had recommended this line to me, but, when I couldn’t find them on the web, I dropped the ball.
Thank heaven for fate literally putting them in my path! They are the cutest stackable bangles around.
Made with natural stones of varying sizes and shapes and hand wrapped (“by proud southern hands”) with gold plated wire; no two Bourbon and Boweties bangles are alike.
In addition to the beauty and unique quality of the line, I was doubly impressed by their business model. Started in 2012, founder Carley Ochs was overwhelmed with the success of the product. So much so, that she needed a production team to keep up with orders. Thus began a:
“cottage industry of stay-at-home moms, teachers …who have become part of the Bourbon and Boweties family”
Thank you B & B for creating such beautiful (did I mention affordable @ $24 to $34?) stackable bangles and for making great use of our most under valued and most important resources: stay-at-home-moms and teachers!
Visit LBD soon to experience these beautiful and unique pieces and stay tuned…I smell a trunk show in the near future. Cheers!
