Where did it all begin?
I'm glad you found it here! I am Meri, the founder of vissiby. I founded the company in January 2022 without knowing what I was getting myself into. I had never planned to become an entrepreneur. I had always done all kinds of handicrafts - for gifts and for myself.
One evening in January, after our daughter had gone to bed, I thought of trying something new in terms of handicrafts. Uncertainly, I molded the first pair of earrings from polymer clay. That same evening, I posted pictures of them on my Instagram (as always with all crafts) and my inbox exploded. Suddenly everyone wanted the same ones. Two days later I had a business name and the first earrings went in the mail to the new owners.
I guess that's how I've always been, a woman of quick action. And here we are now! I can tell you that it was worth it. I love this job, and I feel like everything that has happened in life before has prepared me for this.
Trying to combine a business with everyday life as a mother of two small children is a bit challenging at times, but I'm doing my best. I hope I can continue this for a long time. Thank you for making this possible for me!
