When you buy products from Superhero Mamas you not only support our gift-back efforts, you also support our wonderful makers’ giving back. We are so happy to support this mother daughter duo with Designed by Stacey Jewelry. Enjoy getting to know Sally and Stacey.
Tell us a little about your company & journey to making it happen.
We design and create high quality, handmade jewelry. What once started as occupational therapy and a hobby while Stacey recovered from a debilitating and life changing illness, has now flourished into a thriving business. I was so proud of Stacey’s tenacity while she struggled through such a difficult time in her life, that once I saw she had a true talent for making jewelry, I had to share her designs with the public. Since jewelry gave our family so much hope and a purpose during a tough time in our lives, we want to give hope to others. Therefore, we donate a portion of every purchase to MidAmerica Service Dogs’ Foundation.
Why is this mission important to you?
We believe giving back to the community is paramount to our brand. We chose this nonprofit because they provide service dogs to people with mobility disabilities free of charge in hopes of creating more independence for the person. We want people to understand that each time they wear a piece of our jewelry, they are helping another person become more independent.
What is your "superpower"?
Stacey’s superpower is definitely perseverance…through all of life’s challenges, I have learned to never give up. Sally’s superpower is being a mother. The amount of care she exudes for her child as well as other humans is something to admire.
We're redefining what it means to be a "mama." Some mamas are traditional mothers; others are unbelievable foster & adoptive moms, devoted caregivers, selfless grandmothers, badass sisters, loving wives, or your very best friend. What does "mama" mean to you?
To us, the word “mama” means strength, hope, and determination. Whether a woman is a traditional mother or not, we see so many women exude these traits daily. We all go through our own battles and the way in which we navigate through these trials and tribulations gives us the power to move forward.
What change do you hope to see in the world through your business/ product/idea?
We hope people are able to come back to us time and again because they know they can get a high quality product. We want people to know that their purchase is two-fold, that they’re receiving a piece of jewelry they can wear for a long time and that they’re doing good by helping others improve their quality of life.
Any advice to the next generation of #SuperheroMamas?
Motherhood is tough yet so rewarding. Instill in your children kindness, perseverance, and hope, because with those traits, you can get through any challenges in life.
If you could be any #superhero, who would it be & why?
Sally and I both agree that we’d love to be Wonder Woman. She is a strong and powerful superhero who doesn’t take the well-being of others for granted.
