The story of Maria Silver Butterfly goes way back to 1994 when we were in the military trying to make it every day. I was a working nurse for the army, my husband deployed most of the time. We had two boys and in my spare time I started having interest on creating jewelry as a hobby, soon I was going to bazaars to see what was in the hand made jewelry market.
My interest to attend bazaars, were you find tons of vendors, was to collect information, do a research on the jewelry market and evaluate the quality of their products. I got to know the jewelry industry very well and not only was I making jewelry I was collecting from the Artisans I met from all over the places we were stationed.
My husband and I loved to attend bazaars and as the years went by I had enough jewelry at hand to start selling them. I want to showcase my collection. My husband encouraged me to do so knowingly that we will make money. Those days you didn't have to invest much to create a business. Put a table, pay a fee, adorned the table and there you go- sell and meet people. Good all days for sure!!
At the time the jewelry industry was not booming as it is today. Sells were great, the handmade industry was on top. Artisan were the thing of the day, they were able to sell to a niche market without no problems. Prices were not a question but the creation, the quality and the story behind every produced jewelry item. Those days are gone!
Then, a friend motivated me to have my first jewelry demonstration at her house. I was a nervous rack, my husband always at my side, gave the pep talk to the ladies and made them feel excited on that first night. They shop and shop without hesitation. We played few games, gave prizes (piece of jewelry) to each winner, we ate, talked and from there we got more jewelry party bookings.
Doing jewelry parties on those days was safe and enjoyable. It was the fun behind the party and not the jewelry, which made it more attractive to sell the product.
I needed a name for my business, it was booming and after so many thoughts Maria Silver Butterfly was born. Maria for my name, silver because I love silver whether is jewelry or home items, and my love for butterflies. I thought that my brand name will be unique. Later I dedicated my business to silver. Now these days I am on just into the uniqueness and creation of jewelry pieces of all kind.
