Sometimes all it takes is one person to believe in you, ultimately sparking an unknown passion lying deep within. That was the case for Neci Harmon, owner and designer of Love Harmony Bags and Accessories. While in college, Harmon made handbags for personal use and family members. It wasn’t until her cousin suggested having a purse party that she really tapped into her talent.
A new outgrowth of the former company entitled, Intity Bags and Designs, LoveHarmony Inc. caters to handbag and accessory lovers ages 18-39. According to Harmon the purses and accessories are quality, one-of-a-kind and handmade for individuals with an eclectic sense of style.
Love Harmony products are uniquely inspired by nature, culture, peace and love elements. The company has over seven product handbag lines and is in development of several lines of accessory products as well.
“Everything is different and will never look like anyone else’s creations. The product is standout art. I think of a concept, and I let God guide me. I don’t sketch it out beforehand… I just go with it,” she said.
That leap of faith is shown in every aspect of her designs, from the eccentric colors to the dynamic designs. Harmon takes pride in learning herself as a designer. She’s not afraid to admit that in the beginning, she created without understanding.
“I know what my style is now as a designer. I enjoy mixing and matching patterns, and the bohemian and ethnic looks. I am proud of where I am and going as a designer,” she admits.
Harmon is not hoarding her gifts for just herself either. She’s passing her creative gifts to the community and beyond. She offers jewelry-making classes for those willing to learn the craft themselves.
“I love watching people make something out of nothing. So I decided to take it to another level and teach my craft as well. I’m passionate about this,” Harmon said. “I’m not just creating handbags or accessories, but I’m motivating and inspiring women around the world.”
