Jewelry dish holding my favorite earrings by my night table! Never loose another earring again!
These dishes are Handmade with beautiful finishes. They are great for bridesmaids gifts, mother’s day gift, bride’s gift, birthday gift, or simply for yourself. It’s a great way to organize jewelry or small items around the house.
Time stood still for me when I saw this black rotary dial phone next to a Chinese vase. It reminded me of family and beautiful traditions. Wine glasses with crochet bases give table settings that modern, elegant touch. Make unforgettable holidays!
My shop offers handmade unique seasonal items handmade by myself using crochet, knitting and mixing various technique and artistic inspiration. My passion for the arts and helping a cause is also present in my shop. For example, all proceedings from this Mandala artwork sales goes out to fund SharingForKids.org, an organization helping very poor children receive cancer and heart disease related treatment in Cartagena, Colombia.
About the artist:
“Lucia is the artist behind this Heart Mandala. Her beautiful process is to take a Mandala and recreate it while telling us a story through her original use of a variety of unique coloring schemes. By day, Lucia is a psychologist and her experience is that working on Mandala pencil art gives her moments of calm, relaxation, reflection and peace. She also shares that looking upon the finished art is also a great source of peace and quiet.”
My daughter enjoys her miniature doll house. Her favorite past-time is to dress the toys in all kinds of different outfits. She can spend hours in pretend play with her toys and accessories. She also makes videos of them. Well, this is how the idea of creating and designing accessories for miniature toys was born. It’s been a lot of fun! 🙂 Needless to say, my daughter is at the center of my inspiration for these. She is my companion every time I have needle and thread, yarn, and buttons around. She is ready to help and give me ideas, every time! She does not want to miss in the fun of making these cuties.
I even created crochet Elf Hat or beanies in seasonal colors. Loving yarn and crochet as much as I do, I really had to do it.
Today I am hosting Luisa, shop owner of LittleGemsbyLuisa on Etsy. Here is my interview.
1. How did your start your business? What motivated you to open your Etsy shop?
“I started my business by making myself a customized bracelet. I think that I never hit puberty. I have very dainty features! I was wearing one of my designs at work one day and colleagues wanted to have one too. A few months later I started selling so much I was able to save enough to pay for our wedding reception. Several years later, and two kids later, I finally took the plunge in to Etsy. I wanted to do something I loved that generated revenue and allowed me the flexibility to be at home with the kids.”
2. Which item in your shop is your favorite? Why?
“That’s a hard one! I am into my bohemian phase right now. I love all long wooden necklaces and my leather bracelets too.”
3. When did you learn your craft?
“I started knitting with my mother at around 8. I’ve been beading for over a decade now.”
4. Is there anything else you would like to share?
“Don’t try to please everyone. There is a reason why people like your creations, you made them. Learn about social media, take excellent pictures and don’t expect over night success. Measure achievement by where you were yesterday, last year and compare it to the present.”
