Introducing: Joy Medley!!







 It's here!!! It's finally the day! I can't believe we're really doing this. Eep! I told you that my mom and I were working on a little business, and I can finally say that we're open!!! Joy Medley is our brand new line of unique, fun, and completely handmade necklaces for girls ages 7-14. I'm so excited I could cry. I have been dreaming of this for so long! Paige and I have noticed a shocking lack of unique, fashionable, on-point jewelry out there for younger girls. She loves to raid my statement necklace stash to accessorize, but my necklaces are always too long, and sometimes lack that youthful style that she wants. Then my mom and I were like: "Hey. We could fix that." And we did! And we've had such a blast!!

A little bit about our brand:
Joy Medley is named after my late sister, Nissa Joy ("Joy" for most of her adult life) who taught us everything we know about jewelry making. Beading and making jewelry was one of her greatest passions in life, and she was extraordinarily talented at it. Not a single piece in this collection was created without thoughts and memories of her. The second half of our name, "Medley", represents our fun and eclectic mix of designs and styles, aimed at girls with all kinds of tastes.

"For Girls With Heart"
Our tagline, "For Girls With Heart" expresses our brand's love of charity and generosity. (A value we know also resides in the hearts of our young customers!) That is why all profits from the sales of our very special "HOPE" bow necklace are donated to the Orphan's Lifeline, Int'l, a beautiful charity organization that reaches out to help orphaned children all over the world. This is just the beginning of our focus on giving back, and we look forward to expanding that in the future, with your help!

Handmade
Each necklace is lovingly and carefully made by hand in my craft room or my mom's. Paige is our secret intel specialist, who helps us create designs that girls her age will love. She even occasionally helps string some beads, so it is really a three-generation effort. :O) Our focus is on quality over quantity, so make sure you snatch up your favorites before someone else gets them!

Free US Shipping!
We want our brand to be synonymous with generosity, and since free shipping always makes our heart skip a beat, we want to pass that on to all our dear friends and customers. Because we love you!! So happy birthday to you!

We are working on getting our own website (it's gonna be awesome, you guys!) but for now you can shop the spring collection on Esty at JoyMedleyShop. So have fun browsing our spring lookbook (at the top of this post-dont forget to make it fullscreen!), and our Etsy store! You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter (@shopjoymedley) and Instagram (@joymedley) Please feel free to spread the word to any friends who might be interested! Your support means the world to us.

Love you so much, lovelies!! Have an awesome day!!
Disney + Brenda (Mom)

  7. Disney, I am so so excited for you and this new venture! I'm so proud of you for doing such a bold and brave thing, even when there's still pain in it. Even though I didn't know your sister, I'm sure she would have loved this.

    I love your designs- they are so much fun, yet so much feminine innocent GIRL. I would love for my nieces to wear these pieces! Jewelry for young girls is really rather trashy- filled with boy-crazy messages and punk-rock rebel. I love how these pieces you've designed are fun and stylish but also CLASSY. They're literally like the perfect girl jewelry EVER and can be used for years, even as young girls transition into teens.

    I hope this venture takes you far, beyond your wildest dreams! Cheering you on, sending hugs, and praying many blessings on your endeavors! <3

And it's much braver than I feel capable of being...your support means so much to me! :) I have a lot of faith, and I really believe our brand is going to be successful. Thank you for being with us since the beginning!!
