Etsy Feature: ♥The Little Faerie Shop - Storybook and Nature-Inspired Glitters and Bobbles♥

Etsy Feature: ♥The Little Faerie Shop - Storybook and Nature-Inspired Glitters and Bobbles♥

Shop Name: The Little Faerie Shop

What do you make? I create pendants, rings, hair pins, brooches, and earrings using polymer clay and vintage buttons and cabs. I try to keep a good mix of colors and patterns. I love visual feasts, so that's what I try to present to my customers!

How did you first pick up your craft? I love jewelry, especially colorful, inexpensive stuff that reminds me of stories, movies, and things from my childhood. I really wanted to experiment with some of the vintage pieces that I was finding in nearby antique stores and flea markets, so I kept working at putting pieces together.

What are you inspired by? Mainly by stories -- children's classics are my favorite. I am inspired greatly by the colors and emotions in many films as well. I use my love of literature as inspiration for my crafts.

Tell me about yourself? I am a technical writer for a software company by day. I live with my fiancee and cat near Baltimore, MD. I hold a master's degree in writing, and I am working on my MLS in information science. I also love trading on Swap-Bot. Between work, school, and etsy, I'm a busy gal!

Other etsy shops you love: I love the whole lot! I must say that my all-time favorites would be Imogen and Fat Daddy Bake Shop aka Bangerang Bake Shop. I really admire their ability to grow a business with such sharp, original products.

Advice for fellow artists/crafters? Keep working on it, do what you like, not what will sell!

First, I love the Dorothy avatar, but since that's not for sale ;), I really like the pink birdie pendant. Very sweet and simple.
