"Bored Beads was born out of, you guessed it, boredom. At the start of quarantine, Marie Bland and Jamie Gallo started handcrafting earrings, re-using beads and supplies and making sure to keep prices low. In the year that followed, they hand-made, packaged, and shipped our beads to 800+ jewelry lovers within and outside of the LA Area. They also hosted two socially-distant and Covid-safe pop-ups in LA, as well as incorporated donations and mutual aid into each drop of new beads."
I created Bored Beads with Jamie Gallo in May of 2020. Through this incredible experience, I've learned the ins and outs of running a small business, from graphic design skills to budgeting to strategies for effective and innovative marketing. Below are some of the graphics I designed.
