SHOP FEATURE - june 28th, 2012 - LisaBurekJewelry

today we are so happy to be hosting LisaBurekJewelry as our featured shop!  enjoy her exquisite beaded and semi-precious gemstone creations - and her exclusive DDH discount!

What made you decide to start your shop?
I grew up creating with my mom. Throughout the years I have done just about every craft/art out there! Crocheting has stuck with me since I learned at 10 and beading is my other passion. I love everything about beads: so many wonderful materials, shapes and possibilities!!

I started my own shop after encouragement from friends and family. I love putting together materials and creating pieces of jewelry for people to enjoy and wear. To me, it is such a huge compliment for someone to purchase something I have created!

What type of products do you sell?
Handmade beaded jewelry. I don't have one specific style, as there are so many wonderful creative options between metals, gemstones, etc.

What is your favorite shop accomplishment so far?
Having a ʺstrangerʺ find my shop and love an item enough to spend thier hard-earned money to have it.

What is your biggest challenge as an Etsy/online seller?
Getting noticed amongst the sea of jewelry makers.

What is the top selling item in your shop?
I would say my lampwork/gemstone earrings.

Do you have a tip for others selling in the handmade community?
Be yourself, make what you love, customers will find you. Network with others that appreciate homecrafted and support each other.

What are you currently working on/new projects?
Lately I have been working with precious metals and gemstones.

Do you have a favorite crafty/handmade blog/shop/resource that you go to often, if so what is it?
I check DDH every day, additionally I look at Etsy's blog.
