Hey there! Welcome to Hippy Do You! I'm so excited that you found your way to my shop. My name is Sydney and I created Hippy Do You in July of 2018. WOW where has the past year and a half gone!!! When I first created Hippy Do You, I used Etsy as my platform. After 7 months, I realized that with the growth of my business, I wanted to move off of Etsy and create a platform custom to my style and shop. So here we are! I could not be more happy with the outcome.
Many ask how I got started in jewelry making or what made me want to create a business at such a young age. I have always had a creative mind, always wanting to make new creations. Slowly, I started to find jewelry making interesting because of the creative aspect and the mechanical aspect. I had posted on my Instagram story trying to sell my creations but there just didn't seem to be enough pull. I then created my Instagram @HippyDoYou and linked that to my Etsy. Here is where I started gaining great success in my shop. The spring collection was when the orders really started coming through. Today, I can happily say that starting my own business from the age of 18 is one of the best things I have ever done and I can't wait to see where Hippy Do You will go :)
