This is Shelley's second year at By Hand Boutique! Her jewelry was a big hit last year!
How long have you been creating your art?
I have always been crafty and artistic,
and over the years my various hobbies have included scrapbooking,
paper crafts, stamping, and most recently, jewelry-making.
I have been creating and selling jewelry for a little over a year now.
What are you favorite colors to work with?
I love working with antique brass, because of it's vintage look.
I also love natural gemstones, especially turquoise and agate.
What time of day do your creative juices get going?
I am more of a morning person, but I can *force* myself to be creative any time of day :)
Do you listen to anything why you create, or do you prefer peace and quiet?
My ideal working conditions: A quiet house, early in the morning while my family
still sleeps,with Christy Nockels or Hillsongs playing on Pandora Radio.
