Her first bracelet bore a charm that read “Be Yourself.”

With her younger sister joining her, the girls began selling their handmade bracelets at Mermaids Boutique at Baytowne Wharf , where their mom was a co-owner.

The bracelets, which now bear charms depicting a variety of positive messages, hobbies or passions, caught on and the store began selling more than 100 per week.

To keep up, help was needed; so mom sold her interest in the shop to help her daughters full time.

The bracelets are still growing in diversity and are now carried in more than 160 stores locally and regionally.

The girls are totally involved in selecting each color combination of the woven material and which charm will go on each.

The charms advocate faith, following your dreams, following your heart, and peace, passion, and positivity, hence the name the girls chose for their company.
