Posted by 1 on

As a part of the new Follow Friday series, LanaBetty is very excited to present artists, businesses, and a variety of talented makers and share you, the reader, a little insight into why we all do the things we do. What inspires us, what drives us, and a few tid-bits of advice from the business owners themselves. Do you know of an awesome business?! Is your business totally radical awesome? LanaBetty is always looking for fun and exciting businesses to blog about. Complete this form for consideration. Meiku Designs, owned and operated by Karen in the beautiful Vancouver, BC is simply fantastic. I first met Karen at Portobello West Market and was immediately attracted to her beautiful products and cohesive market display. Eager to learn all I could about how she designed and produced her goods, I asked her questions and she was so kind and easy to chat with! After many shared markets together, I am proud to call Karen and Meiku Designs a friend. Read more about how Meiku Designs came to be below.

Using a mix of semi-precious stones, leather, waxed linen and precious metals my pieces merge the beauty of the West Coast with the urban chic of Vancouver. What inspires you? It makes me so happy to have my customers come to me and show off what they've purchased. Knowing that something I've made is being worn and loved is the best feeling.

Started my company twoyears ago. I decided that I wanted to love what I do for a living. I come from a family of entrepreneurs, so naturally I wanted to start my own business. Meiku Designs was a way for me to combine my love of accessories, creativity and business.

It's cliche but true. You want to look back on your life and be proud of what you have accomplished.
