Some of the jewelry includes stones known to have metaphysical properties like garnet, jade, and turquoise. There’s also a section of men’s jewelry and keychains that make a perfect gift. Here’s what shop owner, Laura, has to say about her busy shop!
How did you get started making jewelry?
I started making handmade jewelry as a kid. I use to tie colored wires from my dad’s trucking business in knots and braids and sell them to my friends. I dabbled in charm necklaces & bracelets in High School, selling them at a video store in a small town in Southern Utah. I took some jewelry courses in college, and really enjoyed the hands on experience. After I had my kiddos, I didn’t have much time for it however, and I was only creating in my spare time (with kids that isn’t much…lol). I decided to start sharing my jewelry with the world in 2012. I remember telling my husband I wanted to do so. His response was “Okay, just don’t spend too much money”. If either of us only knew where that decision would lead us…
Favorite part of running an Etsy shop?
Interacting with people all around the world. It’s so humbling and breathtaking to hear stories and see photos of people wearing my jewelry all around the world!
What is the most challenging part of selling on Etsy?
Balancing life. Working from home makes it much easier to get distracted.
Favorite piece and/or bestseller?
My favorite pieces right now are in my metaphysical line. I love working with gifts from the earth and creating wearable art! One of my very best sellers, and has been for years is one of my inspiration cuffs.
