A Word from Jessica herself:
Jessica Merriman married to Jim with 2 wonderful boys, Jimmy 7, and Johnny 4. I’m from the country town of Hammond, Louisiana. Only an hour away from the great city New Orleans. I grew up here my whole life and loving the simple country life. I’m a stay at home mom and entrepreneur who loves to cook and craft! I’m also a homeschooler to my boys. I love to keep busy and teach my children how to eat healthy and to love everything that’s around them. Even though I don’t have a little girl to put my bows on, I enjoy making my bows for my only Niece, Olivia, my sisters daughter!
I love leather, leather, leather! I always have! My sister Jackie inspired me to start making leather bows and selling them on Etsy. All my products are hand cut, glued and made to perfection. They are 100% genuine leather and handmade with a lot of love and time. I use various types of leather and glue for a sturdy bow that will last forever. And best of all they will never go out of style.
I started off with just bow clips and soon after I was creating new and more hair accessories. I made a mini version of my large bows and since then they have been my top sellers. My new leather knot bows aren’t to far behind of becoming my most popular. So as of now I make large and mini leather bow clips or headbands. I make Knot leather bow clip, star clips that can be turned into headbands.
Four Jays Bows is also a finalist for the Martha Stewart Handmade American Awards Style finalist! Vote for Four Jays Leather Bows on September 15, #celebratethemaker. Here’s the link

After returning home she started by documenting her sister’s first pregnancy and a passion for capturing life’s moments quickly began. Carla is humbled that families invite her into their most precious moments and says the best part of the job is witnessing couples turn into loving parents and seeing those tiny newborns grow into feisty toddlers and beyond.
