Today I am starting the first in my month long series of features of local small businesses. During this challenging time I think it’s more important than ever that we support small business in any way we can.
So let’s get started with Tiffany from Piper Made. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and photograph Tiffany and her sweet family for several years now but only recently discovered her beautiful jewelry designs. I purchased a few pieces already and can not wait to continue to expand my collection.
Here is a little bit about her and her business-
How long have you been in business?
I designed my first Horse Hair Bracelet August of 2018 for a gift with no thought of a future in jewelry design. A month later that one bracelet turned into Piper Made.
Why did you start your biz?
In 2015 after many, many years dreaming of motherhood I decided it was time to move on and focus on other dreams. I have always had a love for horses and their energy. My Papa was a old school backyard rider and his love was passed down to my Aunt who had me riding at a very young age. So it was a easy decision to purchase my own, finally, as the timing felt right. My husband and I found two fairly quick. The day we brought them home we found out I was pregnant. What a beautiful surprise! Unfortunately this changed the dynamic and we had to let one horse go, he lived out his golden years with a local family and his own little rider to love. Piper stayed with us. We welcomed Vivi June 2016 and in 2018 Ronan, our son was born. Being a mother is a true blessing but I’m often left staring at Piper and her mini companion, Dakota from the window. Our bond consists more of groundwork than riding these days and many weeks it’s just a quick rub down as I run around with two kids in tow. Piper Made has become my outlet, my way to decompress now that life has very much changed.
