Follow Your Arrow: Berlynn Yates of Bella Vida Accessories

I'm so excited to introduce the "Follow Your Arrow" series today!  (Inspiration?  This song!)  This series will focus on entrepreneurial women and their stories.  Who better to kick it off then my friend Berlynn, as her handmade jewelry boutique, Bella Vida Accessories, celebrates one year in business today!


Meet Berlynn:




As a child I was always creating accessories, as a teen I worked at a jewelry store and found my style, and as a college graduate I realized I couldn't yet afford all of the big name pieces I liked best. I used those brands for inspiration and Bella Vida Accessories was born! "Bella Vida" means beautiful life and I strive to see the beauty in everything. I aim to create pieces that reflect that. I love being associated with such a fun community of designers and hope to find my signature style that I become known for. BVA is a side venture for now but I'm determined to make it my career and appreciate everyone that supports me along the way! 




You can buy gorgeous pieces from Bella Vida Accessories in Berlynn's Etsy store!  She is open to the possibility of having her merchandise in boutiques, so if you are a boutique owner who is interested, please contact me, and I will be so happy to put y'all in touch!

Berlynn has been kind enough to offer a free bracelet to any of my readers who make a purchase from her shop this month!  Just mention me in the "notes" section of the order.  Pretty sweet deal, huh?!




And of course, be sure to connect with Berlynn on Twitter, and Bella Vida Accessories on Instagram and Facebook!  (She might be running a giveaway to celebrate one year ;) )


Do you have any questions for Berlynn?  If so, leave them in the comments!  Let's all be sure to wish her a happy one year in business!  Thanks for following your arrow and inspiring us all!

XX,

SS
