Jaconi Crafts is a business that came out of a hobby for three siblings from Wicklow town.
The three young children, Jack, Colleen & Niall Brohan began creating items from the popular game Minecraft YouTubers, e.g. keyrings, necklaces, bookmarks, frames and selling them at local markets.
With the high profile of Minecraft they had to seek permission from the YouTubers to use their “skin” to make various items.
The threesome are now casting the wares further afield and have taken part at a show in the U.K.
Thanks to Lisa O’Brien of O’Brien Events Management, they had an opportunity to showcase their items at Minevetion UK in Peterborough last week.
Their mother Majella told Wicklownews
“Some of the YouTubers loved what we made and even started tweeting about them.”
“We had a great opportunity and experience meeting Ash Dubh, , Snakedoctor, Gizzy Gazza, NettyPlays, Salem’s Lady, Raiderswolf, TankMatt, Danjobro, Solidarity, Minimuka and many more. All this would not have been possible only for Lisa & Hannah from O’Brien Events Management they have been so supported and encouraging to us.”
Next Minevention is City North Hotel, Co. Meath 24th & 25th October and The Radisson Hotel, Galway on 28th & 29th November.
