I am a young (22yr old) mom of a 3 almost 4 year old girl.
My bracelets, necklace and earrings are incredibly chic, modern and fluid.
I love the outdoors!
I would rather eat the crust off of the pizza (as long as it was thick) then the pizza itself!
What got you started crafting?
I've always been a little crafty. I used to make braided yarn necklaces and sell them in my mom's salon when I was a kid, and they actually sold! Running my own business is in my blood. I knew I would do something eventually, but it didn't click until 2 years ago, when I realized jewelry is my calling.
What is your source of inspiration?
I love Patterns and colors - but most of my designs I think up either right before I fall asleep or when I'm dreaming.
What have you made recently?
My bracelets have a unique wrapping and securing. When I wrap your hands have to be firm and in control, but they also have to be gentle. When I am wrapping I have to pull the wire very tight so there are straight lines instead of loose. Most of the time I get little wire cuts on my fingers from pulling on it. Then I finish my pieces by securing it, and I promise you they will not come undone!!!
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my pieces in boutiques, and I am working on getting more stores to carry my products. I also sell on Etsy.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Are you serious?? When you buy handmade you are supporting independent designers, moms, college students, average Joes... Why do you want to buy something that has shipped their business to China just so the company can have more profit. I don't want to buy something that I'm not sure if it was made in sweatshops or that it has "Made in China" on it.
