Shelley Thompson's Profile

About

I love art work in most every form and have since I was a young girl. I grew up and even went to college for drawing and painting. I had to leave college early but had a NEED for using my artistic abilities in some way, so I started drawing and painting on my own.

Over the years my flighty mind lead me into dabbling in owning a picture frame business, a furniture restoration/mural work, collecting and setting gemstones (very beginner) to now beading. Add some OCD to all of this and WHA LA, here we are on Etsy.

I've shopped on Etsy for several years and have always wanted to sell but I just didn't have the confidence to. So, after listening to my kids and my friends about sharing to the world my great little accents. I just told myself that you all cant eat me....right? Ha-ha-ha!

I have 3 children and a great man! At current I'm raising 4 dogs and 1 cat.

We've all lived in Washington state all of our lives, and I know that's where I get the inspirations for most of my jewelry. Other inspirations come from my imagination, which is quite colorful at times. Lastly, inspiration comes from trying to make something that is challenging, colorful, classic, and cool. I love sparkle and shimmer and that's the reason my favorite gems to work with are labadorite, sunstone, and moonstone of all colors. However, I love working with all stones.

Id love to hear feed back from anyone interested in leaving it.
