Now for the interview:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself...

My name is Michelle Peterson and I'm from St. Michael, MN and Lahaina, HI (Maui is temporary for my husbands job until Jan 2009). I am married, have 2 daughters aged 9 and 5 and a chocolate lab age 3, King.

2. What is your regular job?

My regular job is domestic engineer (stay-at-home mom) and I am now a volunteer at Sacred Hearts School, where my daughters attend elementary school. My enjoyable/hobby job is making and creating jewelry!

3. Do you Haiku?

Edgy and chunky,
a melody of bright stones,
modern and rustic.

4. Picture of your workspace (as is, no cheating!)

My work space is VERY limited right now, due to our small apartment in Hawaii. I have a corner in our bedroom with a SMALL table to work on my projects. As you can see in the photo, I work on several projects at one time and have beads everywhere. Half of my materials are in bags/boxes on the floor. At home in MN, I take up much more space in my dining room and my hopes are to some day have an entire craft room to myself!

5. What inspires you?

Simplicity and modernism inspires me most, with clean lines and a bit of funkiness. I've always had a knack for crafts, but am really trying to find a true simplistic edge for my hand-crafted jewelry. I love things that are out of the ordinary.

6. What item in your shop is your favorite and why?

I really love quite a few of the pieces I make, but if I have to pick a favorite: Aurora Australis. I love the curves of circles/hoops and with the Labradorite stone and its flash, its TRUE LOVE! Labradorite is such an exquisite stone, with the right look and light, you can get plenty of sensational style with the stone in whatever its paired with.

Thank you Michelle for your generous giveaway! Your jewelry is very beautiful and original :)

I like the Oceanic Retreat Necklace which is very nice but I do have to say that the bracelet is just beautiful and so totally me. It reminds me of jewelry I would wear with my summer clothes, white shorts, cute colorful top, sandals, small earrings and that beautiful bracelet. I can see myself now chilling at my favorite beachside oyster bar listening to the waves and feeling the wind on my face. As you can see, I am missing going to the beach, it has rained all summer! Thank you for your giveaway! Kristi
