Shipped very quickly! The colour of the gold was different than the photo (the photo looks more like yellow gold but in person it's almost rose gold looking).
I started creating and selling on Etsy back in 2011. I started making unique bath and body products that featured Marula Oil from Africa. One thing lead to another and I opened up a second shop - Liuwa.
People often ask what "Liuwa" means, and it is actually the name of a reserve in Zambia. Africa is very near and dear to my heart, which is essentially why I started selling online in the first place. I travelled there in 2010, and again in 2015. I think about going back there every single day.
I took a slight hiatus from Etsy as I chose to go back to school. I am now a fully registered Veterinary Technician and can pursue my dream of treating animals in Africa. Having an online business helps to keep me focused on what it is that matters most, and that is to put in the work now and have the freedom to travel later. I also very much enjoy getting to use the creative side of my brain, as my career is often only analytical. Thanks for checking Liuwa out!
