Meet today's featured seller!!!
Meet..."The Pink Designs"
I love the fact that she is just SO versatile, from beautiful dresses, pajama bottoms and jewelry she has a very nice array of things in her store:
1. Where do you get your inspiration from?
Everyday I’m inspired by the people and things around me… I like to browse magazines and see what other people are doing, but always adapting ideas to my own style. I like to take scrap materials or pre-loved clothing and seeing what I can create from it.
Websites like Etsy and Burda Style are awesome because you get to share your love of all things handmade, and seeing other people create spurs me on too. I also love going to markets that sell handmade and vintage items. I find it so inspiring when I see people selling items that they’ve created with their own two hands – their very own labours of love ♥♥
2. Tell me about your self and your design style?
I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist, and have loved all things craft-related since I was a wee little thing. Jewellery making and sewing has been a hobby of mine for years, but I’ve only recently started to try my hand at selling my creations. I think everybody dreams of being able to make money doing something that they love, and I’m no different. I’m hoping that I’ll eventually get to sell at local markets once I have enough pieces in my collection.
When I design my jewellery and clothing, I have a really random way I go about it. I have no formal training, so I go with my instincts and cross my fingers that it turns out a beauty!! Every item I make is done with much love and attention.
3. What things do you shop for? What catches your eye?
I love shopping for jewellery and clothing items. I go through different stages of fascination. At the moment, I’m searching for the perfect ring.
Gorgeous colour and elegance are the main things I look for. I love really simple, feminine and pretty pieces.
I aim for beauty in simplicity, so I don’t like to over complicate things by doing too much. I really do believe that less is more.
