Q. Tell us a bit about your Etsy shop and the items you make.
A. I started selling on Etsy about 3 years ago when I decided to become a stay at home mom. I wanted my shop to be affordable to all age groups and started looking into ways to make my jewelry more ‘wallet friendly’. The biggest ‘theme’ to my shop is definitely birds. I make wire wrapped bird’s nest jewelry as well as pendants and charms with bird’s nests incorporated into them. I try to make all my pieces fun and whimsical.
