I'm so glad you're here. I'm Jenn, creator of all things Mira Wren. I wear most of the hats around here, but I couldn't do any of it without my husband and best friend, Adam. I've been making jewelry for myself and others for 18 years— about half my life!
I'll tell you a bit about my business by telling the story of its name.
“Mira” is related to the Latin word for “wonder”. Does the word “miracle” come to mind? The fact that I'm doing this business is truly a miracle. 3.5 years ago my health went sharply downhill, and we could not figure out what was wrong. Our life was quickly narrowed down to the bare minimum: sleep, make food, keep the kids alive. It was a difficult time, but God sustained us day by day (often for me it was moment by moment).
Fast forward to 2020. In January, the Lord provided a new doctor who was able to give me a complete diagnosis: Lyme disease, toxic mold poisoning (from a house we used to live in) and a group of related illnesses. Over the course of this year, I have begun to regain my health, slowly but surely, and it is truly a miracle from God. Never did I dream that I would be able to start a business in the near future. It is truly a miracle!
Now for “Wren”. This one is a bit simpler! My husband and I have four kids (ages 8, 7, 5, and 3) who are all nature lovers, and our oldest especially has a thing for birds! She has a pet parakeet and wants to be an ornithologist (bird scientist) when she grows up. Wren is a pretty name that gives a nod to our fun kiddos.
Thank you for being here and for choosing to shop small business! I hope you find jewelry here that you love, because I love making it for you.
