WHO-HOOO! New FS!

Thats Cyd!!! ---> ---> ---> ^

Q:What do you make?
A:Well these days I am mostly making vintage style jewelry which I sell on 3 different online indie sites. I also make tile and glass mosaics, clay sculptures and do watercolor painting. I love creating, I'm addicted to it and I would probably go crazy if I couldn't make stuff. I am mostly a self taught artist, though my Mom did put me in a couple of special art classes when I was very young.

Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
A:Nature, always nature! I seem to always include flowers, plants, birds & bugs in my jewelry as well as in my other types of artwork. I am a complete animal and nature nut, it's very important to me to spend time being outside, for me it's the best way to re-energized myself and at the same time it also allows me to slow down. Lately most of my outdoor time is devoted to my garden, which I dearly love.



Q: What is your favorite piece from your own shop?
A:Not sure I have one, but I l do like my new "Brown Hydrangea necklace" pretty well

Q: If you could buy anything on Etsy, what would it be?
A: Way too many to name, but here is a very cool chair that I would love to have:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27880826&ref=sr_list_3&&ga_search_query=vintage+chair&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=3&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

Cyd's Workstation ---->---->---->^


Q: How did you start your creations?
A: When I was a kid I use to make jewelry with my Mom a lot, then about a year and a half ago I started looking for another way to earn a living and I decided to start making jewelry again.


Q: Do you enjoy making it?
A: I love it, absolutely love it! The only thing about it that I don't really like so much is working on the shipping of orders.


Q: Do you have a favorite purchase or two?
A: Again there are so many that I love, but here are a couple. The T-shirt is from "Rainbowswirlz" and the other is an adorable handmade card by "Dingocards"http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=14605974http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=14532711
