It's that time of year where everyone is having gatherings like bonfires, cook outs, etc! Well, of course you want to look nice, and no outfit is complete without accessories, so check out this week's Featured Seller
JewelryByBellissima! Let's meet Lynda.
1) How did you start creating?
I believe I was born creating. It is simply something I have done since a I was a small child.
2) What is your favorite thing about creating?
Creating harmonious beauty out of unknowing elements. Putting pieces together to create something that people will be proud to wear.
3) Where do you find your inspiration?
From everything around me - including the personalities of my children and people in my life, nature and architecture, I truly love the beauty of architecture! Add a little bling and I'm off and running. My jewelry and other creations are a collaboration of what I see and hear around me, how I am feeling about those things and how I see the world. My company name says it all!
4) Tell us about what you sell.
We sell quality, beauty, hard work, and integrity - all in the form of fine jewelry. Our jewelry is made from genuine Bali Silver, authentic Swarovski Crystal, natural stone, stainless steal wire and sterling silver ear clasps and ear wire. I combine these gorgeous elements to design quality bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
5) How did your shop get it's name?
It means beautiful in Italian - which is my heritage.
6) Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Only produce and sell what you love. If you are organic and an environmentalist, do not compromise on that in your work for money, it will show up in your end product. Believe in what you do and do it with integrity!
7) How do you balance your Etsy shop, your children, and your everyday schedule?
As a homeschooling mother of six children having balance is the only way I can succeed at life. I have the love and support of my like minded husband, so we work as a team to keep things running as smoothly as possible. We share responsibilities so we both have balance and gratification in all the aspects of our lives.
