From the Heart is a collection of mala beads, small-batch botanical products, and jewelry, all handmade from the heart by Cape Cod local, Janelle Taylor.
This business started out with only mala beads – Janelle is both a student and teacher of yoga and after learning about the spiritual meditation practice called Japa Meditation where you use the mala beads to meditate, she started making her own. After falling in love with the art of making things by hand, From the Heart started to bloom! Soon she began adding simple design, crystal healing jewelry, along with botanical products. Being a student of herbalism is how the botanical products came in. Making things by hand, whether it’s with natural woods, crystals, and gemstones, or organic, fresh (sometimes local) plants and herbs, bringing things to life from the heart is one of Janelle's greatest pleasures.
She is a big believer in simplicity and sustainability, which comes through in her products. She only works with responsibly sourced and natural materials and makes everything in small batches. It is her belief that it is our responsibility to follow mindful creative practices and respect the world around us, and that belief is carried on through From the Heart from the materials and creation process itself, to the packaging used (recycled bubble mailers, recycled kraft boxes, cotton muslin bags, and a custom stamp used with water-based, toxin free ink).
C-Breeze Treasures was created and founded by Annie Cochran in 2010. Annie is a local, self-taught, beaded jewelry designer, creator and recently a “newbie” potter! She hand-forms and hand-carves her own pottery beads, pendants and small dishes and fires them in a small kiln in her home studio. Annie is the Solopreneur of the business, which means she wears All the hats of runner her full-time business. Her passion is to create, and her Treasures are inspired as she says, “By the Beauty that is Cape Cod”!
