A former advertising copywriter and creative director, Lindsay Coluccio has always been drawn to creative endeavors. After having her three children and leaving a full-time career to be at home with them, she soon realized she still wanted to be creating something.
How it began.
Using some sheets of felt and glitter from her children’s art supply cupboard, Lindsay cut out letters and hand-sewed them onto a yard of linen she had left over from reupholstering a chair, creating her first piece for her daughters’ bedroom. She had it framed and couldn’t wait to make another one. So she made a piece for one of her brothers as a Christmas gift. After that she made initial pouches for each member of her book club. Then pieces for her niece, her twin sister, and her best friends. From there, people started asking if they could buy one. She had her first trunk show to launch the business in March 2015 and Glitter for Breakfast has been growing ever since.
In the fall of 2016, Lindsay made a few tassel necklaces for herself, her daughters and a few friends. A surf shop and a few local boutiques took notice of the colorful, handmade pieces and began to carry them. From there, the tassels became a brach of Glitter for Breakfast that Lindsay never expected. That tassel jewelry collection has expanded into a rainbow of products featuring college football game day tassels, sorority style, mommy and me matching necklaces, bridesmaid gifts and more.
What we do.
In order to create each one of a kind piece, Lindsay’s process is meticulous. For the banners, she doesn't use templates because she believes the artisan look of freehand-cut letters adds character to the artwork. She then sews, by hand, not with a machine, each letter onto vintage and imported linens to create an original and durable piece of art that can stand the test of time and add instant personality, style, sparkle and conversation to play room, child's room, bedroom or anywhere in your home. Her tassel necklaces are strung by hand using moroccan silk tassels, colorful vintage African record beads, milled wood beads and ceramic accent beads to create a lasting piece of jewelry that adds color and personality to your style.
Who is behind this.
Born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut, Lindsay attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and now lives in Newport Beach, California with her husband, Rett, their daughters Casey and Dylan, their son Quinn, and their pug, Gus.
