Celebrating 14 Years in Business!
14 years ago I started selling my creations on Etsy. I was a new mom looking for something creative to do on the side while working freelance in Architecture and raising our busy first born son, Nikolas. Flash forward to today, I am so grateful for the opportunities this business has provided me with but most importantly for the community it has built around its core mission: capturing life's fleeting moments.
I've been blessed to do what I love and touch the lives of so many customers - one heirloom piece at a time. I couldn't have imagined all the amazing partnerships with the brands I love, including our most recent with Pottery Barn Kids! I am so incredibly honored to grow this business alongside a hardworking team who believes in our mission and shares in our vision.
To say this business has been a labor of love it would be an understatement. Despite the few lows and challenges I can't think of a more gratifying job to wake up to every day. If you ask my family, they'll tell you I've given this business the best of me but I've also received so much joy and personal growth in the process. It feels like a dream come true.
Last year we renamed our business Vana Chupp Studio (formerly Le Papier Studio) and added some new stunning collections that compliment our signature custom silhouette jewelry so well. The response has been amazing and we look forward to sharing more new creations with our community this year.
I invite you to join us in another year of capturing life's special moments. It is our absolute honor to serve you! We wouldn’t be celebrating this moment without all of you, so thank you–from the bottom of my heart. Cheers to another year in business!
