This weeks featured Etsy seller is a friend of which I'd like to share some of her wonderful and creative jewelry works as well as a little about her. From the very first time I'd visited her shop I'd comment to her on how her works to me were that of simplicity, yet elegance in the same. I know there's nothing simple about creating jewerly works of this calibur but when viewed, they appear as just that, simply elegant.
I hope you enjoy....
**** awww man i hate these kinds of questions lol. Well...lets see......By day, I'm an admin assistant at a dental school which is a fine job, a bit mundane, but it pays the bills so I cant complain. I do the normal suburban commute on buses and trains and read my Nook (mostly filled with historical fictions which take place during ancient egypt and the renaissance eras). At least public transportation, as much as i loathe it, gives me a chance to see all the different kinds of jewelry people wear. I fear sometimes people think i'm "checking them out" which I kinda am...but...oh well, i guess i'll cross that bridge when and IF I get to it :) I live with my boyfriend who is a soldier and my mother. Its an interesting living situation so jewelry making sure helps alleviate some stress at times!!! I officially registered my business late last year and am hoping that I can get it off the ground, really, this year. I plan on signing up for my first craft fair and trying new ways to advertise. I'm obsessed with welsh corgi's and when i'm too tired to make jewelry or deal with life, you can usually find me on the couch watching the Golden Girls or NCIS marathons.
****** I don't think I have a favorite time period, I appreciate different aspects of each period. Right now i'm very into the Art deco era jewelry, as in if I'm picking something out for me to wear, personally, thats what I'd end up choosing; Yet, the jewelry i make all seems to have a modern/contemporary edge to it -- go figure!!
I guess I'm most interested in Egyptian/ancient jewelry
as some of it is so intricate, yet the tools they had to work with were so basic. It amazes me what they could achieve with such simple tools.
**** I've drawn since i was a little girl
and was always artistic; and loved everything from oil painting to pastels. I have a degree in art history and fine art....
However, I was an Interior Design major for 2 years, so I've always been into design. When i owned a home I was an avid home improvement DIY'er!!! I demo'ed and installed my own kitchen cabinets and counters and did all the trim/finish work, including laying hardwood flooring.
I also enjoy landscaping and gardening.
Are there any other venues in which you sell your works that you'd like to share with us?
**** As of right now, I only sell via Etsy and word of mouth. However I was contacted recently about consignment at a local artisan store. Still working out all the details..... fingers crossed :)
