Gypsy Jewels Etsy Giveaway

Gypsy Jewels Etsy Giveaway



Today's Etsy Giveaway is for a Candy Cane Lane Necklace from Gypsy Jewels! ($13)




How fun! Perfect for this Christmas :) Here's some info on it:
"16" Long, Lobster Claw Clasp, Length adjusted by request. This red and white jingle bell necklace makes a fun and perfect gift!! Small enough for a child - makes a great choker for an adult!"

Now for the interview:

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

I am Juliea, an artist, activist, wife and mother of two. My son, Calvin is 11 and my daughter, Kiyra is 7. I came from a troubled background where I was in and out of lock up facilities, group homes and foster care. I met Shawn, my husband 10 years ago and he has helped me in my struggle to overcome that. I am a better person because he stuck with me, and I'm grateful for everything I have. I truly believe in every individuals ability to change themselves - and the world. I try to be an example of this every day.

2. What is your regular job?

Right now Gypsy Jewels is my full time job - and I mean FULL TIME! I'm always creating, listing, promoting, etc. I lost my part time job about a month ago, so this is what I've got going. But, I've been vending and doing Gypsy Jewels for the past 5 years, and I truly believe in myself. I know I can have a successful business if I work hard enough. So, I work very hard.

3. Do you Haiku?

Never have but let me try...

Large Decoupaged Box.
See what you can put in it!
Possibilities...

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

The fisrt picture is of my actual "work space" - my recliner. I sit here for hours at a time making jewelry and either watching movies or listening to music.

The second picture is of my computer - also a constant work place.

And the third is my table of inspiration and finished projects. This is located right to the right of my recliner, and my eyes often wonder there when I'm figuring out where to start or what to do next.

5. What inspires you?

I find inspiration in everything. I find it in my emotions, my surroundings, my TRASH, etc. You never know where you might find inspiration if you look for it everywhere...

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

Abstract By Nature. I love this piece because it is so elegant, and a great expression of recycling magic! I love black and white photography, and I really dig the contrast between the textures and the nature. It's really fantastic.

Wow! all of her items are just absolutly beautiful! I love the Candy Cane Lane Necklace- perfect for Christmas but my most, absolute favorite is the Layers of Lovely Necklace.
