I'd wanted these earrings for quite some time. They're so unusual and distinctive. I've already worn them a couple of times and received compliments on them. They arrived really quickly as well. Very happy with my purchase.

About

Born to be creative

Like many creatives, I have been creative all my life. It's what I do. It's what I'm good at. And so, I embrace it completely.

My first job was at a very cool local thrift store, where my love of old things grew.
My second job was at a craft store, where my love of crafts grew.
And my third job was at a bead store, where my love of beads got completely out of control.
These were not accidents, I chose these jobs for myself because I had a fondness for them.

But, I always wanted to work for myself. I didn't want to answer to anyone (who does?) and I wanted to do something that I enjoy.
And so I did. Though, I do have to answer to myself and some days that is harder.
I absolutely love what I get to do every day and that I get to do it from my own space. I am very lucky and very grateful.

When I moved to Ireland 12 years ago, I needed something to do. I did not bring any of my favoured materials or tools with me from the states because that would have been ridiculous.

But then, I found Etsy.
And it was the best thing to find. I immediately brought all my supplies over and the rest, as they say, is history.
I love belonging to a community of people just like myself. They get me here. And I get them.
I have met some of the most amazing people here, including many customers who are quite creative themselves.
I am grateful to all of them.

Welcome to my world!
