Wire Your World Etsy Giveaway

Wire Your World Etsy Giveaway



Today's Etsy Giveaway is for your choice of any 'Think Globally' Necklace from Wire Your World! ($17)

Beautiful, isn't it? Here's some more info on it:
"Think Globally with this pendant. The bead spins tilted on its axis, just like a globe of Planet Earth, in its handcrafted, cold forged sterling silver frame, musically reminiscent of a harp or lyre. I have created the frame by shaping, forging, shaping again, hardening and the burnishing for shine. While adorning your neck the bead will lie flat. The braided neck cord is included, ready to wear, but would also look lovely on your own sterling silver chain."
Now for the interview:

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

Cynthia Lariviere, single but taken, no children but caretaker for 17 outdoor cats, 4 large dogs and 1 boyfriend, most of them live outside, except my boyfriend :-), we live on the outskirts of Royal Palm Beach FL, on 1.25 acres at the dead end of a dirt road. Great neighbors, all animal friendly with great kids.

2. What is your regular job?

I'm a wire artist by profession now, I do MANY craft and art shows in addition to my online shops. I have just invested in stone cutting and polishing equipment and look forward to polishing my own stones for my work and for other artists. Past professions were Executive Assistant in various industries, stockbroker, insurance agent, and postal worker.

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

Yep, its a mess with holiday creating, shipping and craft shows taking all of my time!

4. What inspires you?

For my basic wire art pendants, I'm inspired by the color, shape and patterns of a stone, and use the wire to compliment that. Other designs, like the Think Globally necklace being offered in this giveaway, were designed in an effort to appeal to more "hipster" or "trendy" market. I've been working more with forging and wanted to offer an item at my shows that I could make complete with a necklace cord, that would be suitable for daily wear, that was something I could make in batches to streamline the process and keep costs low, so as to provide an item that would be complete and under $20.

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

I rarely have the time needed to sit down and create such involved pieces of work, but I created this one for an etsy Team challenge. It was alot of fun but took several days to design and complete this necklace.
