About

Hi! My name is Erica Benefield, the person behind Rock Pretty. I'm a wife to a fantastic man, mother of 2 little nuggets and I work a full time corporate job which I'm very thankful for but wish I didn't need. As much as I have fought it, I have a very normal career and that, for a Pisces, can be a difficult pill to swallow. Last year I decided that I needed something to break up the monotony and, thus, my Etsy experience began. I come from a line of people who have creative talents but never thought that you could make a living from being an artisan. My dad always said that his beautiful woodwork is a hobby not a job. While I love him dearly, I've set out to prove him wrong. Growing up, fashion and jewelry were my creative outlets. My mother was called by the principal a time or two as a result of my "creative" fashion choices. Now that I'm all grown up I still have a bit of an edgy streak that I try to let out when I can,…

Hi! My name is Erica Benefield, the person behind Rock Pretty. I'm a wife to a fantastic man, mother of 2 little nuggets and I work a full time corporate job which I'm very thankful for but wish I didn't need. As much as I have fought it, I have a very normal career and that, for a Pisces, can be a difficult pill to swallow. Last year I decided that I needed something to break up the monotony and, thus, my Etsy experience began. I come from a line of people who have creative talents but never thought that you could make a living from being an artisan. My dad always said that his beautiful woodwork is a hobby not a job. While I love him dearly, I've set out to prove him wrong. Growing up, fashion and jewelry were my creative outlets. My mother was called by the principal a time or two as a result of my "creative" fashion choices. Now that I'm all grown up I still have a bit of an edgy streak that I try to let out when I can, especially in my creations. I learned about Etsy about a year ago and I became hooked. Etsy is now my creative outlet, which is necessary in order for me to keep my sanity :-) Although there are obstacles I'm so excited to have my shop up and running and look forward to adding more and more inventory. I love creating and the process that goes with allowing your imagination to realize into something tangible. I'm still working on creating my brand and giving my shop the cohesion it needs to convey my personal style and I'm constantly on the lookout for inspiration. Drop me a line with any feedback and I'll be so grateful. In the meantime, keep rockin' and look pretty doing it!

Thanks for checking me out!
