"Where does the word 'Vivamacity' come from?" is definitely the most commonly asked question. Vivamacity is a word I made up for an art project in 8th grade, deriving from the word vivacity (the quality of being attractively lively and animated). Since then, it has stuck with me when I can't think of interesting usernames. So, here we are!
Nowadays, Vivamacity is a bohemian lifestyle brand categorizing in handcrafted jewelry, home decor, apparel, and more! It all started in the summer of 2015 when I made chokers as a hobby and wore them in public. Women of all demographics always paused me to ask where I got them from, if I had a business card, etc. It happened enough that it brought me to play around on Etsy, uploading (in my opinion) a zero effort, horrible photo of my choker and people were actually interested. "What on earth?" I thought. Since that day, I have decided to put my all into handmaking jewelry for girls - and boys - all over the world, loving every second of it.
Because of your interest, because of your love & support, because of your little fingers clicking 'Follow'/'Like', because of you, Vivamacity is where it is today.
If you are reading this, I appreciate you. Without your kindness and motivation, well, honestly, I would have never continued to grow Vivamacity and achieve my dream.
Truthfully, until the day I met my first Vivamacity supporter, who stopped me in public, the reality of what was going on hadn't occurred to me. It didn't because I am still the same part-time waitress, part-time college student who just decided to fulfill a hobby I truly loved and enjoyed from the bottom of my heart. As a child, growing up I could not leave the house without wearing a necklace, and I hoarded crystals / stones everywhere I went (even parking lots, gross heh). Today, I struggle with carpal tunnel syndrome so my sincerest apologies if you cannot read my handwriting. All packages are safely hand-delivered to the post office by me. Vivamacity has not been a walk in the park, but I don't regret any of it! If you love something, master your hobby. You'll never know what can happen :)
