AND THE WINNER IS!!Thanks to everyone who entered.
Becca's Bead Creations is an amazing jewelry shop on Etsy. Everything in Becca's shop is so unique and beautiful! She has had her shop on Etsy since July, 2008 and resides in Manchester, New Hampshire. Becca has made an amazing pendant as the Give Away Prize, but before we get to that - why don't we learn more about Becca!
How did you decide on your shop name?
I decided on the name Becca's Bead Creations because I am proud of the items I create and wanted to shout to the world, this is what I do.
When did you start making/designing jewelry?
I started making jewelry while I was in high school by making my own hemp jewelry because it was the in thing to do. After I started I just couldn't stop, I made all my own jewelry and then started making it for my friends. During college I started attending craft fairs and expanding the type of jewelry that I made. I now wire wrap pendants, and work with semi-precious stones. I decided to start my own business about a year ago so I could fund my hobby.
Where do you design/create? What would you love to add to your space?
My husband and I were recently fortunate enough to purchase a home and I now have a craft room where I work. I have made it my own haven. I am an avid Red Sox fan and have covered one whole wall in baseball photographs. The window overlooks the yard and lets in a large amount of light, allowing me to sit and daydream up new creations.
What does your crafting space look like? Do you have a picture?
My crafting space is messy, unorganized and needs more shelves.
What or who inspires you?
I get inspiration from everywhere. For example, one of my summer jobs during college was picking peas on a farm stand. I loved the way the peas looked inside the pod. So I wrapped three pearls making them look like three little peas in a pod.
Do you have a day job?
I do have a day job, I am a paralegal at a law office.
What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
The item I most enjoyed creating are my necklaces with the Japanese Five Yen Pieces. In the Japanese culture the Five Yen Piece is good karma or good luck. I love the thought that one of my creations will bring someone good luck.
