Meet Talented Local Lacey Obry of Pitchoun Designs

I’m excited to bring my lovely blog readers the first Jupiter Local blog interview of 2016! I met Lacey back in back in December at a local event. She is a super talented lady and I’m so happy she agreed to share her story on the blog!

Lacey Obry of Pitchoun Designs
Lacey Obry of Pitchoun Designs

Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Lacey Obry and we are new transplants to south Florida from New York. We have lived here in Florida for a year and a half now. I have two sweet girls named Léa ( 5 years old) and Zoé ( almost 3 years old).

When did you learn to work with leather/ When/How did you start the Pitchoun Designs brand? I started working with leather in the fall of 2013, when i started my business. i was a hairstylist and took off time after the birth of my second daughter. I noticed that there was a lack of small, minimal hair accessories for children and had trouble finding bows for my daughter. I decided to start making my own, after request from many people, i started my own line of accessories.  Having a love for all things leather, i decided to try my hand at making accessories with leather, at that time there were no kids accessories i had come across made with leather. I am self taught and have tried my hand at different types of leather to find the perfect material for each style i design and i absolutely love working with leather. The name for my business was born from the word ‘Pitchoun’, a french term of endearment for a little one, influenced by my french husband and my love for everything french.

What do you find most challenging about running your own business? I find it most challenging finding the balance between work and life. I’m a bit of a workaholic, i have so many goals for my business, sometimes i have to slow myself down.. There is always something to be ordered, an email to be sent, promotional events and advertising, its endless running your own business, but i have to make myself take time off to enjoy life.

What is the most rewarding thing about running your company? The most rewarding thing about running my own business is seeing my accessories on my customers via social media, and seeing them worn global. i get so many darling photos from customers and recently received sweet notes from customers saying their daughter started in our headbands as a baby and now have grown into our hair clips. i want all my accessories to “grow up with your child”.

What do you do on your days off? On my days off, when i actually take a day off,  I’m all about shopping, mani/pedis and brunch and coffee dates with my girlfriends or husband. Because i work so much running my own business, i need that time to unwind and catch up with my friends to talk about things other than my work.

Pitchoun Designs Spring Collection 2016

How do you juggle work & family? When juggling work and family, I have learned work stops  once I pick up my kids from school. Having my studio currently in my home, Its tricky knowing you have work that could be done just in the next room.  We do homework and have playtime and bath time before dinner. In the evenings, I try not to be on my computer working, so i can spend time with my husband. You have to set those boundaries to make that time special with family.

Who is your favorite Superhero and why? I don’t really have any specific “superhero”, but I would say my super hero would be any “momprenuer” who has started their own business from scratch and who has built it into a successful business and who has maintained balance in family and life. There is something so empowering about owning your own business as both a women and mother, where your identity in not only found in your kids but in yourself and your own creativity.
