Wednesday's Feature: Lani of Petite and Co

Meet Lani of Petite and Co.



AE:  Who are you and what is it that you do/make?    
DG:  Hi! My name is Lani. I am a 12 year old making, living, and designing in California, and I make and sell handmade, unique jewelry on my Etsy shop, PetiteAndCo. 

AE:  How did you get started/What is the motivation behind your work?  
DG:  It all started in the summer before 4th grade. While looking through a brochure about summer camps at a local university, the Metal Jewelry headline caught my eye. To be honest, I had no idea whatsoever on what this week-long class might include! Upon arriving at camp, eight-year-old me was very surprised (and delighted) to see hammers, sheet metal, wire, and pretty much everything a little kid like me could wish for to make a huge mess. I have been taking this camp every summer since then, and my skills and confidence have improved each year. My teacher there, Georgia Dwyer, has taught me something new each time.


Although I only recently started my Etsy shop, PetiteAndCo, I have learned a lot about working with people, giving to charity (see the bottom of my shop's About page!), and above all, enjoying myself!

Out of every $30 I make, $5 goes to the worthwhile charity Imagine No Malaria.
Thank You!

AE:  Where can we find your work? 
I am also offering a coupon code for 10% off any item on my shop. The code is summer10 and expires on July 31, 2015.  

Don't you just love it when young people hone crafts and contribute to society?  It makes my heart go pitter patter.  Lani's work is beautiful.  I've already ordered one of her rings.  Please check out her Etsy shop of beautiful, affordable items, and help her with her craft as well as contribute to the charity of her choice.

Peace & Love,
