About

Emily was born in June of 1998 and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. However, she has never let her challenges beat her. From learning to walk on her own after being told she never would be able to, to being able to tie her own shoes, nothing has ever gotten in her way.

One of the things Emily has learned and loved to do is making bracelets. She started by making bracelets just for her family that coordinated with the current seasons or events. Soon the bracelets started to receive compliments, and people began to ask for bracelets for themselves. That led to the launch of Emily's Bracelets in October of 2018.

Almost four years later, Emily is now 24 years old and has made and sold over 17,000 bracelets, primarily through our website www.emilysbracelets.com.

In addition to providing Emily a purpose, we have used Emily's Bracelets as a way to raise awareness of the challenges faced by Young Adults with disabilities. We also donate a portion of the proceeds of each bracelet to the Special Olympics and have donated over $8000 to date!

While most of Emily's sales have been through the website, she has recently participated in craft fairs and other shows. This provides Emily the opportunity to interact with the community and her customers and practice her newfound confidence and social skills!
