Next up in my Etsy Love series is Angie from Ang’s Divine Designs who sells beautiful, affordable jewellery. Angie’s shop is full of beaded delights at very reasonable prices and I think anyone would struggle not to find something to suit their taste!
1. Tell us a bit about yourself and where the inspiration came from to start your Etsy shop.
I started making earrings several years ago when I found out that my daughter could not wear anything that was not nickel free. Any time metal is in contact with her skin, she’ll break out in a rash and itch. At the time she wanted to start wearing jewelry we couldn’t really find much she could wear; so I started making earrings for her with nickel free hooks. When I started making jewelry I knew I found my creative outlet! I loved it! I started showing people I worked with what I had made and started getting requests. I have enjoyed it ever since. My goal has always been to create affordable, attractive earrings/jewelry. I try to get the best deals on my materials so I can keep my prices low for you.
2. Do you have a favourite piece? Tell us about the thought process involved in creating it and why it is your favourite.
I don’t really have a favorite piece. I love creating jewelry, but I am my biggest critic too.
[Well I guess I will choose my own favourite for you! These seed bead bottle earrings are so unusual (and I just love rainbows!)]
3. What is the biggest milestone you have achieved so far whilst selling on Etsy?
I love and appreciate that I have had over 200 sales in less than 2 years and I am always excited when my creations go over seas!
4. What are your future plans for your shop and crafting in general?
I love to come up with new ideas and create new jewelry. I would love to get the word out more about my shop!
