ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
When facing a second round of cancer, an empowering mantra went through her head. So she went to a jeweler and had them make her a necklace first with the words One Tough B, and then She Knew She Could.
Shelly wore that necklace, and found the strength within her to power through. Because, at the end of the day, Shelly says, when life kicks the chair out from under you, no matter how many loving people surround you, you’re on your own, with your own thoughts to fight your battle.
She never intended to create a brand around her challenges.
Interestingly, Shelly had just co-published a book called Breaking Sad, a compilation of stories from people who have suffered immeasurable loss, talking about what to say to someone going through hard times, when you don’t know what to say or do.
And the more she thought about it, the more she realized this could be a great gift for someone who is struggling, when you can’t find the words, and don’t know what to do to be supportive.
So whether YOU, or you want to gift one of our items to someone you love to remind her of how tough you know she is, this brand’s for you.
ABOUT OUR TRIANGLE
For OTB, it symbolizes 3 things:
- We’re impossible to break. Just like a triangle’s structure alleviates the pressure of any weight through even distribution.
- We are all we need. Just like a triangle, whose shape is solid and stable, all on its own.
- We can rise above. Just like a triangle with its upward facing point.
And the circle at the top symbolizes our head and mind, where our inner power lives. Wear it and know the power of you.
The She Knew She Could Manifesto
Fear is a lonely place.
Others can empathize, offer advice, or give you a shoulder to cry on, but at the end of the day, when the door is closed, it’s just you.
Life didn’t give you a choice.
But the strength to endure comes from within you. You’re resilient and powerful enough to get through this.
You dig deep, even when you feel the weakest and most vulnerable. You push through. Over and over again.
We’ve created a symbol of that internal power that is always there, to remind you of your own strength, or to support someone else’s.
For the days that are the biggest challenges, grab it and hold on tight.
Feel the reminder.
Because you’re as tough as you need to be.
She knew she could.™
