Jackie – LACE BRICK DESIGN
WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF
I create handmade jewelry, am uber passionate about interior+product +photo+storefront styling, and I will try to paint anything and everything (that is not nailed down) turquoise or mint! Oh and brand marketing+communications +social media consulting is very quickly becoming a successful off-shoot of LBD…I LOVE working with creativepreneurs!!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Design and adventure have consistently been the pulse of my being and, so, I guess it was only natural that LBD birthed out of a solo, soul-searching trip to Salt Spring Island, BC during the Spring of 2013. Walking past a bead store near Kits Beach, Vancouver, I was drawn inside. Knowing that I would be spending hours on a beach, kicking up sand and counting waves, I decided that I would dabble in the art of earring design (why not, right?). I purchased all of the required supplies from the little bead store and voila, a week later I had handmade earrings coming out the wazoo! Adding these to the already accumulating pile of pretty little DIY creations in a corner of my home, I knew my next step: Lace Brick Design.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
Be it the wild, the woods, or the weather, Nature is my muse: She gives us patterns, colours, textures, and so many wonderful experiences to work from. I am also in awe of my fellow boss babes! #liftemup! (….and my idol, Marie Forleo…the og boss babe!)
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
Wow! Now there is a loaded question. My most robust dream would be to become an interior stylist & brand marketing mogul (or some form of #girlboss awesomeness) who telecommutes from a remote cabin in the woods!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
Hands down: INSTAGRAM! IG combines my love of pretty things, photography, and people…how can I not be in love?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the connection to LBD’s Followers (dubbed ‘LBD’ers’) & fellow makers. How wonderful is it to have instant relationships with one another?! FAB! When that little bubble shows up telling me a Follower has left a comment, I get so dang excited! (insert nerd emoticon here)
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
First, I have a long phone chat with my bestie, where we hash out every corner of the mishap, then I eat copious amounts of anything terribly unhealthy (usually dill pickle chips and a Bounty chocolate bar) and hit up a hot yoga class (ps yoga has taught me that good and bad are both equal parts of this life; both come and go so, in turn, I try not to sweat things too much)
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
I’ll give you a few! -I can sing the alphabet backward -I don’t own a TV -I am a trained Kindergarten, barre, and yoga teacher.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would love to not have to sleep! I need 9-10 hours of sleep each night and this cuts into productivity! I’ve always admired those who do not need more than 4-5 hours a night…imagine what one could accomplish!
