GIVEAWAY: VRD JEWELRY (Now Closed)
If I could only buy one thing from your shop right now, which would you recommend?
At the moment my favorite pieces are my new collar necklaces. They are some of my most recent designs, and they have been quite the statement pieces. Every time I wear either of the necklaces out I get compliments all day long.
What was first piece you ever made/sold?
The first piece I ever made to sell on Etsy was a necklace made from hemp cord, a vintage feather charm and a turquoise stone. I was so elated when I sold it, and my first customer was awesome and really loved it. That first customer also became one of my repeat customers.
What are your plans for the future?
I’ll be receiving my Associates degree soon, so i’m in the process of applying to several art/design school in New York City. I plan on studying jewelry/accessories design and illustration design. I also plan on expanding VRD jewelry a lot! I plan on getting my own web page for VRD soon, participating in some jewelry/craft shows, creating some look books, and of corse pumping out new jewelry designs! There are a ton of new items coming soon!
Do you have a workspace? If so, can you share what it looks like?
My work space is also my bedroom! Its mostly a workspace, with a random bed in the corner, but I don’t sleep much, so I don’t need much space for that. I just recently installed pegboard on my main wall, so my tools are all organized now, which has been a big help.
|Her workspace. Don’t mess with a lady and her hardware.|
Now some fun fill in the blanks:
I can’t get through the day without ……Pandora.com! It keeps me going throughout the day
I’m currently reading…….”The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp. It was recommended to me by my painting teacher. It’s full of really great tips and inspiration for creative folks
My favorite song is ……..This one is tough because my favorite song changes every week. This week I’ve had Azealia Banks’ “212” on repeat.
I’m lusting after ……The amazing new clothes in this September’s issue of Vogue. There are so many talented new designers emerging right now, its really inspiring!
My dream vacation would be …… I’ve always dreamed of going to Italy to appreciate the amazing art, food & history!
Any local (Tampa) brunch recommendations: I love indian food! My sister just recently took me out for brunch at an indian cafe called Udipi. It was all vegetarian, and the food was amazing, as was the atmosphere. They also had really good prices (I’m very cheap with food, so this was important.)
