Heather Fritz, recent breast cancer survivor, jewelry artisan and creator of Fritzi Designs brand handmade jewelry announces the Spine Tickler™. Designed to attach to the clasp area of most necklaces, these new back adornments dangle down your spine. Heather is asking for assistance on finding appropriate fashion contacts in New York as she will be there from July 1 – July 8.
“These adornments are wonderful; not only do they accent backless or low-back attire, but they also help to prevent your clasp from spinning around,” said Heather about her new product. “Spine Ticklers are fun and an affordable gift since they can be worn with existing necklaces.” She also noted that some are long enough to be worn as a bracelet and added,“Look good as you walk away.”
Heather came up with the concept of the Spine Tickler™ while praying for inspiration for a product that would take Fritzi Designs to the next level. “I started Fritzi Designs in September of 2011 because God lined up several opportunities that led me to jewelry making. I was looking for a way to change my life after cancer and did not want to go back to a corporate career. I never thought I would be designing jewelry, but I love it and I am so grateful for this opportunity.”
Heather says that this trip to New York is an example of God working. “I put it out there that I wanted to promote my Spine Tickler™ in New York and within a week, I had an affordable opportunity. I honestly do not know what I am doing or who I will meet, but I’m walking in faith. I know that God will bring me the people and resources that will take my business to the next level. I’ve never felt so optimistic and excited about the future! I wish this for everyone,” she said.
Heather was a corporate marketing professional for 11 years before receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer in 2009. She is convinced that the stress of her job combined with a career that was not in sync with her real purpose was responsible for the cancer. “I kept banging my head against the wall in my career,” she said. “I was laid off numerous times and kept forcing myself into the same kinds of positions. I didn’t know how to change my life and felt that my dreams were squashed. Then I witnessed God positioning and providing for me. When I discovered that God can and will do the impossible and that he is always working on my behalf, joy and confidence descended upon me. He has turned my cancer into a life change, a new career, and an opportunity to help others. I meet a lot of people touched by cancer when I sell my jewelry and get to hear their stories and share mine. I am so blessed!”
