Etsy shop of the month interveiw-randomcreative

1., How did you find Etsy?
One of my friends introduced me to Etsy after she saw me searching for buttons to buy online. She has a friend who sells on it and thought it would appeal to me.

2., How did you get into the craft/artwork that you do now? I've always loved beads but never did much with them besides stringing before this summer. A lot of my inspiration came from all of the wonderful jewelry that I saw on Etsy. I also saw a few pieces that I loved during a visit to the Amana Colonies ( I decided to challenge myself to learn how to make more interesting beaded jewelry. My inspiration from button bracelets came purely from all of the neat button creations that I saw on Etsy.

3., What inspires you? My fellow Etsy artists continue to be a source of inspiration. I love almost all colors and am constantly inspired by different color combinations that I see. I also love looking through jewelry instruction books for inspiration.

4., Who is your fav. artist? The two Etsy artists who have inspired me more than anybody else are Carol ( and MaryLou (

  1. How wonderful that you featured Rose in your blog! She really has some pretty designs in her shop, and she's obviously as addicted to beads as I am.

    And thank you to Rose for saying that I'm one of her inspirations! That's so flattering, especially knowing that I share the honor with Carol Dean (who's been my own inspiration ever since I first saw her work).
