For the past three years, Faith Love & Leather Jewelry has been bringing homemade hope and love to customers all over Hamilton and beyond. The shop sells hand cut earrings, bracelets, necklaces and keychains.
“Finding joy in the everyday life” is the foundation that keeps both the business and founder, Trisha Grantz, running. “It can be difficult as a mother of young kiddos to see the joy in changing diapers, constantly feeding, cleaning up dishes and laundry, little to no sleep or time to yourself. I struggled for years, just wishing for tomorrow or when the kids get a little older, or things get easier,” says Grantz. “I need to see each day as a gift and find something joyful in every situation. It’s not always easy to do so, but once you start working on it, you find yourself happier and more willing to see the blessings even in the hard situations.”
Faith Love & Leather offers many products that are made from mostly quality leather from suppliers out of Washington and Israel, along with a variety of metals. Grantz is also
Grantz offers her robust selection of products, as well as a custom order feature as well. “For a custom order, customers can contact me through Etsy or social media,” says Grantz. “I work with them until their vision is just right. The whole process takes about two weeks to until full completion. I enjoy custom orders because they get my creative juices flowing in a direction that I wouldn’t have explored on my own.”
There are many great things about owning a small business and for Grantz, it is the irreplaceable relationships she has formed along the way. “I fiercely love people, but never quite found the right way to reach people outside of my family and friends,” she adds. “Owning a small business has stretched me outside of my introverted tendencies and I find myself making friends, encouraging strangers, and loving on people in situations I never would have been in before Faith Love & Leather Jewelry.”
