LOXAHATCHEE, FL, July 29th 2013, Christine Thibeault, Designer & Owner of TangoBear Buckles.
Ms. Thibeault is new to the designing world and most recently become the owner of TangoBear Buckles, a jewelry company that creates fun and unique one-of-a-kind belt buckles made of gold plate, sterling silver and brass, combining Swarovski elements with vintage jewelry. She specializes in the creation of custom belt buckles. Inspired by her own horse MS Tango’s Final Step she combines this inspiration of love into her designs and of course her companies name is fashioned after Tango”bear” herself.
Ms. Thibeault attributes her success to her love and passion for what she does. She became motivated in her profession because she previously purchased an expensive buckle from a competitor to only take it apart as some of the stones had dulled. Rather disappointed, She re did it and thought that by making the product with high grade quality materials from the beginning but for a price that suits almost everyone, more people can enjoy the beauty of these pieces.
Christine also uses collectable j.j. pins, one day while looking through her collection of costume jewelry she noticed many brooches that her Mother had given her as a child. The pieces were so whimsical and adorable she realized she could use them into her designs, thus was the birth of a very clever and cute idea. By taking these pins and putting them into buckles created a fun marriage of the old and the new, Christine can also use your own supplied piece to create something truly your own. She also recently started using real flowers onto her pieces supplied by Hanami Jewelry.
Ms. Thibeault’s dream is to sell her products in boutique stores nationwide and wishes to donate some of her proceeds to homeless shelters and no kill animal shelters across Palm Beach County as her way of giving back to her community. Check out her website at www.tangobearbuckles.com
