About

Inspired Art - Jewelry & Music

Hi! I'm Sam...that's short for Samantha.
I'm a singer/songwriter based out of Minnesota and travel quite often for music events and even flew overseas a few years back for concerts in Germany!! (That was amazing!!! I have 4 CDs released and hope to work on a 5th one soon, songs are written yet recording is expensive - but I believe in the right time it will happen!

So how did all this start?
Well, since I am a VERY creative person and need to be engaged in artistic expression... (desk work is fine for a short while, but then I'm done! LOL) ... there had to be something I could do to add in the form of merch for my music events/merch table.... I didn't want t-shirts, so it had to be different.
Back in 2006 I was scheduled for a concert series in Houston, TX. Since everyone already had my two CD releases at that time and the third one was still on the finances-forthcoming-waiting-list, I decided to create some very simple little glass bead bracelets, not knowing if they'd even sell. To my surprise I sold out of the bracelets I had made at the first concert!!! (crazy right?) and I had 6 more to go!
So off to the craft store I went to purchase more material...and the same thing happened at the 2nd and 3rd concert with being sold out.
So long story short.... I stuck with making jewelry and added that to my music merch table!

Since then my jewelry line has expanded from simple bracelets to more elaborate designs with leather and chain, vintage beaded bracelets, pretty glass beaded ones with charms, necklaces made with leather and pendants or leather and chain with cool different designs which look rustic and stylish.

Then I added Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelets to my seemingly ever expanding jewelry lines. They are made with lava beads and semi-precious to precious stone. The lava beads are porous and absorb the oil. I created those so I (and now others) can enjoy the aromatic benefits of my/their favorite Essential Oils! Initially I just made them for the ladies but now as of late I've also added a line of Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelets and Necklaces for men.
I have yet to make more and add also EO Diffuser Necklaces for the gals too! Always a work/design in progress! ....and all that among music events and other things!

My "shop" is a table in my music office that is bright with lots of windows! After living for years in a dark basement apartment, all the light flowing in is really invigorating my creativity! ....I keep thinking...there's many who started either in their basement...or a little table like mine. :) Success is where you go after it no matter how small the start!

I'm grateful for the gifts God gave me both in music and designing (creating, decorating) and I always hope to be a blessing to others and give love to those who need it.

Proceeds from jewelry sales go back into the music (travel expenses, food, give-aways)..... and hopefully recording too!

Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop. Hope you find something you like.
