Hi, and thanks for checking out this blog.
My name is Gina, and I’m a twenty-something girl from New Jersey. I’ve always been a creative type and especially a lover of fashion. After graduating high school I went to school for fashion, but I never made it very far. After a year I decided that I needed to go in a different direction. I went to a local University and studied art and I immediately loved it. After graduating college, I realized that it was very hard to get art field that didn’t involve teaching. I knew I wanted to something with my life that was very creative and allowed me the freedom to do as I pleased. That was how Modo Spira was born. I knew I wanted to take the 2 things in my life that interested me the most, art and fashion. The name Modo Spira came to me when thinking of a name to call my business. I knew I wanted a name that would be meaningful for me. I came up with ‘Just Breathe’ which is what Modo Spira means in Latin. That name to me seemed ordinary. So I looked up those words in various other languages. The Latin translation stood out to me the most. It was short and simple and it just seemed to me like a good brand name.
Combining my love of creativity and fashion was when the idea of making jewelry came about. I love jewelry. I don’t think I know any girl that doesn’t. I decided to come up with a signature piece. Looking around different forms of social media I noticed that women and teenagers were wearing a lot of bracelets. As for the teenagers, I observed that they were wearing multiple bracelets on each arm. That got me thinking… Bracelets that were simple, yet elegant but also offered a pop of color and fun aspect to them. Something that you could wear everyday, but also for dressing up as well. I love jewelry that’s versatile and knowing that you don’t have to change it even if your outfit does.
So I will be updating this blog with new things I am working on and also sales and promotions going on in my shop.
Thanks for visiting! 🙂
