The Beginning

It all started in the summer of 2019. 

I was trying to find something to do as a hobby, and to kill time while being home after work or when I stayed in the house during the weekend. 

A former friend of mine suggested for me to make beaded bracelets and sell them. I thought it was a good idea, so I bought some beads and elastic jewelry cord. 

I started making beaded bracelets for LGBTQ identities, and started selling them through my personal/business social media accounts. I named my brand “Amber’s Bracelets for Pride.”

It ultimately continued into the pandemic in 2020, but under a different name: Amber’s Bracelets Store. I expanded it into LGBTQ beaded bracelets, Breast Cancer Awareness Beaded Bracelets, motivational beaded bracelets, beaded charm bracelets, beaded bracelets for men, and waist beads. 

It was during this time when I realized that this also helped me relax and take my mind off of work and other things. 

Between 2020 and 2021, I revamped my brand and bracelets into what other people wanted to be, and it resulted in losing my motivation and vision of what I wanted my brand to be. 

In the midst of all of this, I was working remotely and it affected my mental health and anxiety in a negative way.

I always say “I’m ok” to people when they ask how I’m doing, but I was suffering internally from body fatigue, burnout, high levels of anxiety, and emotional breakdowns from time to time. I didn’t take days off from work to recharge because I was caring more about everyone else, and it took a toll on my mind and body.   

Then one day at work, I went to the bathroom, I had an emotional breakdown. I went back to my desk, and texted my dad. Upon texting him, I had  a breakthrough: I needed to rebrand my business and align it with what I’m going through. 

In late 2021, I closed Amber’s Bracelets Store and I started planning what I wanted my business to be, what I wanted to sell, and what I wanted the new name to be. 

In early 2022, Healing with H’armani was born.
