Today’s Etsy Spotlight features Heather from Heart Shaped Box. Heather also blogs at Gerber Days so definitely check her out there too! Everything in the Heart Shaped Box store is currently 40% off because it is closing April 8, 2011. I’m a little bummed that I just stumbled upon it recently, but the bright side is that now is a great time to check it out!
Here are the Spotlight questions and Heather’s answers:
How long have you been crafting?
I have been crafting as long as I can remember!
What inspires you to create?
I love how rewarding it is to finish a project. It’s a major stress reliever for me. I can craft for 6 hrs and the time just FLIES.
What are some of your favorite colors/patterns? How do you incorporate them into your work?
I like everything from trendy to timeless. Sometimes I will make a piece that is trendy and unique, and other times I’m in the mood to make a classic piece that will last a lifetime.
Who are some of your favorite celebrities? Whose style would match up with what’s available in your store?
I really like Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, and Natalie Portman. I have many different styles in my shop.
What is your workroom like? What conditions lead you to create the best work?
My workroom is neat and organized. I like to make my jewelry in a clean/stress free environment.
How long does it take to design and create each piece?
Sometimes I have an idea and it just works out perfect the first time (under 20 minutes). Other times I will have a design completely put together and realize it’s not what I was hoping… and I’ll start over.
What is your favorite product to use?
Swarovski crystals. They always make a piece look elegant and beautiful.
