Brooke Ward Designs began as many businesses have- with all of the pieces falling into place at just the right time. Having been a stay at home mom for over 10 years, working again was far from my mind. But I made a lariat for a dear friend... she wore it to a dinner party and someone bought it off her neck. I made her another lariat... she wore it to a luncheon and someone bought it too! After making lariat number 5 for her I decided it was time to get serious.
Once I began approaching stores about selling my pieces, I had unexpected success at nearly every one. After doing some local artists' markets and holiday shows it was apparent that there was great potential to grow Brooke Ward Designs. With the support of amazing family and friends, I began to search for suppliers all over the world. That was in February 2011... today I have about 50 stores nationwide that sell my pieces.
My goal for the future is to show my versatile, beautiful lariats to as many potential buyers as possible. Every woman should own one!
