I am so excited about a new series that we are doing here at Utah Mom Connection.
It’s called the Spotlight Series and it’s starting today!
In the Spotlight Series we will be introducing you to some amazing local women and moms who just happen to be business owners here in Utah! We are all about bringing you the best that Utah has to offer as well as celebrating our roles as mothers and we figured that this was a great way to combine the two!
Everyone, I would like to introduce you to LynDee Bonner, the owner of June + Penny. I found her shop online a little while ago and I immediately fell in love.
She makes the most darling jewelry and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some Mommy and Me bracelets, they are to die for! Take it away LynDee!
I’m a mom of two girls, a two year old, and a 6 month old! Because of my extremely hardworking husband, I’ve been lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mama since my first baby, June, came along! We live in the beautiful Heber valley, and although I currently live in Heber, I will always tell people I’m originally from Midway!
I make jewelry! I make fine, handcrafted, unique bracelets and necklaces. My grandpa used to make jewelry he would buy from the Native Americans in Pocatello, so ever since I can remember, I’ve been stringing beading wire, and crimping tubes to make little pretties! We always had a craft room full of beading materials growing up, it was just a fun little hobby to remember grandpa by! I still have turquoise bracelets I made more than 20 years ago out of grandpas beads.
We found out we were having another little girl in December of 2013, and once the initial shock and anxiety of extra drama wore off, I quickly got to work on planning all of their matching outfits! That’s what over-bearing moms do best, right!? Well then I became worried that my tot was going to be jealous of the baby from the get-go, and I had heard that to wear off toddler suspicions, have the new baby give them a gift when they meet them. What better than matching sister bracelets!? I ran over to my Parents, pulled out all the beading supplies and got to work! A set turned in to two, then 3, then a dozen (ha)! My friends were inquiring about baby gifts, that turned in to custom orders, then sister sets, then Mommy + me sets, and so on! That’s when I opened up my Etsy shop!
I’ve been more than blessed to have the most amazing customers. It makes my heart so happy to hear the encouraging words from happy customers. It blows my mind that my jewelry is all over the world. Never in a million years did I think that sister set would lead to a fully functioning home business!
I love that her shop was born out of a simple idea to help new sisters to bond! All of her jewelry is made with the same love and I am so excited to share June + Penny with all of you! And LynDee is being super awesome and is giving you all 20% at her shop!
I’ll stop talking now so you can all head over and start shopping! Enjoy that 20% off!
