Etsy Feature: ♥Solo Artworks♥

Etsy Feature: ♥Solo Artworks♥


Shop Name: Solo Artworks

What do you make? Timeless and classy jewelry, handforged in precious metals, including solid 14K gold.

How did you first pick up your craft? I have been making jewelry to sell for 16 years, since I was 8! I started working primarily with metal just over a year ago.

What are you inspired by? I love looking at textures and tiny detailing, and incorporating that in an abstract way into my design. Whether it be filigrann detail like the tiny balls on these Fancy Bezel Set Prehnite Earrings, or the multi-angled facets on the tiny Le Petit Hammered Stacking Rings).

Tell me about yourself: I'm kind of a goofball. My two favorite non-crafty things are Star Wars and bunny rabbits. I have two that run around my living room all day, and on occasion inspire me to make things like this.

Other etsy shops you love: I LOVE Waterfall's glass rings, Art by Nakisha's amazing watercolor paintings, and swear by YouStinkSoap's Happy Shave Bar

Advice for fellow artists/crafters? Don't be afraid to do what you love! With a strong conviction and a willingness to do the work, you can turn even a hobby into a full-time job :)
