Celtic Bubble Wands began quite by accident in 2007 when owner Jackie Scruggs-Jimenez was looking for a new craft project incorporating her love for all things Irish. When the simple love knot design was worked into a wand, she realized you could blow bubbles with it. And since both her kids loved blowing bubbles, a new business was born. She saw this as an opportunity to make some extra money to help pay for her oldest son’s very expensive therapies and education…he has autism.
Each bubble wand, completely handmade from copper wire by Jackie, features a Celtic love knot and can be made in wide variety of wire and crystal bead colors. They are accompanied by a small bottle of bubbles which can be personalized with the customer’s own message, and a cute little organza bag to carry them in. She soon realized they were perfect for weddings and kids’ birthday parties.
Jackie opened a shop on Etsy in 2010 and has expanded her product line to include jewelry, ring pillows, handfasting cords, and the occasional surprise creation. She is currently working on bridal bouquets which will be introduced later this year.
