Now, it's time for the interview!

1. Hi, please tell me more about yourself:
I was born and raised in Utah, where I live with my husband of 1 1/2 years who I absolutely love! He's so supportive of my jewelry business and he's my best friend. We live in a tiny apartment right now, but hope to buy a house someday soon. I work part-time in the banking industry, so I need a creative hobby like jewelry so I can keep myself sane.
2. How was your shop started?
I'd been shopping around Etsy for awhile and I absolutely fell in love with the products and the community! I made jewelry for myself as a teenager, but I never had the tools or supplies to really get into it. I had a friend who made jewelry as a hobby who had a jewelry party and I thought, "Wow, I could totally do this!" So I researched a lot on the Internet and Etsy and opened my own shop!

3. Who/What is your source of inspiration?
I hated seeing the same kind of jewelry being sold in malls and online. Basically, I love making anything that's different and unique; the best thing I can say about my shop is that it doesn't look like all the regular jewelry everyone else wears. My shop is unique, fun, pretty, and elegant all in one!

4. What handmade possession do you most cherish?I buy handmade fairly often, and one of my favorite things is rings! When I was dating my husband, I always told him I didn't want an engagement ring (even though I ended up getting one later, lol) so he would buy me handmade rings all the time as my "wedding ring"--they all hold such great memories.

5. Which items in your shop receive most compliments from customers?
My best-sellers are my Vampire Earrings and my Little Lockets--not only are the products themselves gorgeous, but the pictures capture them so well. One of my biggest encouragements to other sellers is to have the best pictures possible, because they can really sell a product.

6. What is your favourite material used in creating your products?
I love whimsical jewelry--I am IN LOVE with flowers, in case you couldn't tell from my shop. I also love experimenting with different jewelry media--resin, beading, wirework, leather, etc. I use a lot of antiqued brass, lockets, oxidized silver, and czech glass flowers. I love making new things look old and beautiful.

7. How do you promote your Etsy store?
I keep track of when the best time to renew my items is (through Google Analytics) and be sure to renew daily. I also promote through Facebook, Etsy forums, and my blog ( now there's a really easy contest going on for my Tulip Trio necklace.

8. Make a wish!
Umm, world peace? I just wish I could make people happy with my jewelry, one piece at a time.

The Twilight Bracelet Review!
Jenna sent me a Twilight Bracelet for my review. I'm so excited to get this dainty handmade bracelet because it's one of my favourite items from her shop. I was extremely delighted to see the beautiful bracelet! It is lightweight, but it's of good quality. This bracelet is simply classy and stunning!
The Twilight Bracelet is made with gunmetal chain and findings, a swarovski heart crystal, and a deep-red teardrop bead.
