Everything Under the Sun!
Under the Sun Jewelry is an Abbotsford small business run by someone near and dear to me, my sister Michelle. I included one of her most popular items, the pineapple necklace, in our August edition of Abbotsford Locally Obsessed. Owning (lots of) small businesses seems to run in my family, because Michelle also owns and operates Wisbeys Veggies in the summertime with her husband, creating her nature inspired jewelry in the off-season over the winter.
Michelle first started up her Etsy shop with the idea that she would sell all types of crafts that she creates, however over time she fell in love with crystals and jewelry making and she shifted the focus of her shop to showcase her creations. The name 'Under the Sun Jewelry' came from the phrase 'everything under the sun,” which she thought was fitting for her shop while allowing her to expand jewelry designs in the future.
Michelle’s favourite part of creating jewelry is brainstorming and thinking of new ideas. She loves working with gemstones and driving her husband nuts with frequent trips to Michaels.
I am probably one of Under the Sun Jewelry’s biggest customers. I’m always asking her to bring her stash to all family events and selling her out of items before they’re available!
