Ahoy! We are Amanda and Stephanie Wright, sisters and co-owners of Of Love and Sea. We are so excited to be telling you all about our business and the fun things we’ve been up to.
Of Love and Sea started with a love of creating pretty things with a nautical theme, and has turned into an ongoing project of crafting, crocheting, making jewelry, refinishing furniture, and styling photo-shoots. We both have always loved design, and our shop has given us several outlets to express our creativity. The day that OLAS really hit it off, was when a good friend and photographer asked if she could photograph some of our products.
One thing lead to another and the next thing we knew, we had unofficially started Of Love and Sea. People were requesting to buy the things in that photo-shoot and we realized we needed to come up with more inventory. As orders came in we found that we needed a more direct way to market OLAS. This is how our Etsy store came about!
Here are some of our favorite pieces:
This delicate garland is one of our favorites. The soft blush pink, white and latte tissue sweeten up the vintage look of book pages.
Don’t these whimsical sail boats make you want to sail away?
All of our jewelry is hand made from quality metals. We start out with a spool of sterling silver, copper, or 14k gold, create custom rings, and weave those rings into an intricate rope.
Our goal for OLAS is to inspire our customers, to add a personal touch to their everyday style. Whether it be at work or at home, we want them to feels as if just for a second, they have escaped from reality and found themselves on a white sandy beach. We want each piece we create to have some sort of nautical touch.
We have high hopes for the future of OLAS. We are currently working on pieces to style a Valentine’s photo-shoot. Visit ofloveandsea.com to view the pictures soon! Also, we have been asked to style events, and hope to design a larger product line in that direction.
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about us. Feel free to stop by our website at ofloveandsea.com, and visit our Etsy shop by clicking on the “store” tab. You can also “like” us on facebook at facebook.com/ofloveandsea. Who knows where this journey will take us next!
