Imagine walking into your closet to grab your favorite outfit, to find it hanging on a hanger that has your name on it – how is that for something special, something uniquely personal! LilaFrances’s personalized wire wedding hangers on Etsy is just that kind of a special treat. Not only do we love the products that the owner, Anna Hartshorn has created, but we also are inspired by her story.
When she was just a little girl, Anna loved to play with and twist together anything she could find lying around the house including twist ties, pipe cleaners, hair pins, and even telephone wires. She would take these creations to her mother and present them as her own unique little masterpieces.
Her mom would always tell her that “there’s something to this” and encouraged her to use her talents for making something special for others. Little did Anna know that those talents would actually lead to creation of her personalized wedding hangers now sold on Etsy. Anna now dedicates everything she makes to her mom who passed away from cancer. She says that her mom’s belief in her has propelled her to make these products for brides and grooms on their special days.
Not only does LilaFrances make personalized hangers but she also creates cake toppers, ornaments, bouquet charms, wedding signs/decorations, table numbers, table number holders, jewelry hangers, and many jewelry items including earrings, necklaces, and rings. Each item is lovingly handmade from scratch and you can just see the care and attention to detail. Symbols and other objects work great in wire, too!
When you purchase items from LilaFrances, you also help fund cancer research. Anna donates 5% of all profits to the Ovarian Cancer Research fund in honor of her mother. This is a wonderful incentive to use one-of-a-kind items in your wedding and even treat your bridal party to a special item of their own. What a great feeling!
