About creativityismessy

Sales 499
On Etsy since 2010

An unorganized girl with a dream....

Creativity is messy, and I am very creative!

Jewelry making for me began as a young, broke, single mother, desperately wanting to have pretty things to wear. I taught myself how to make jewelry, and eventually began selling some of my pieces to put a little extra moolah in my pocket.

I started my Etsy shop in 2010, but sold jewelry and accessories on-line and at shows for over a decade prior to Etsy.

I love to find beauty in things that would normally be considered trash - which is why I love to recycle. Many of my pieces are made from salvaged goods like t-shirts, bottle caps, old keys and so forth...

However, I don't just recycle... I love to work with all kinds of mediums. I sew, I paint, I work with metal, plastic and clay. I find new ways of making art almost daily.

Making jewelry for me is something that I live to do. My inspiration comes from everywhere, and will come to me at the craziest, most inopportune times... like in the middle of the night, at my day job or driving around town running errands. I can't control my creativity... It runs wild and free within me.

    My name is Tera, but around here most people just call my Messy. I love to dabble in all types of arts, but have a special place in my heart for fun and funky jewelry. I put a lot of blood, sweat, tears and love into each of my pieces. Enjoy!
