Today’s post is about not only one of my favorite Etsy shops, but a little about the amazing woman that runs it. She also happens to be one of our best friends. Jessica Vaughn is the owner of Up Your Anchor, a nautical jewelry company. She has always had a love for the ocean and it truly shows in each piece that she hand makes!
June 1, 2014 Jessica was out on the intracoastal of Fort Lauderdale when she was bit by a bull shark. Researchers believe it was about 5-6 feet long. She was extremely lucky and can now walk normally despite being bitten on the calf. She unfortunately was out of work for 8 months, however it gave her time to really work on Up Your Anchor and help it grow.
Up Your Anchor has a variety of different things for men and women. She hand makes each piece and can customize almost any piece to the color or charm you like. She makes paracord anchor bracelets, fish hook bracelets, anklets, keychains, hair bows, earrings and even shirts.
Even Joseph and Delilah love Up Your Anchor!
