Asymmetrical Vintage Pearl Rose Necklace! It reminds me of something you'd see a star wearing on TV. Maybe on the red carpet! Ten precious pink pearls lead up to a filigree with a pearlized vintage rose cabochon! This totally fits the definition on 'girly'!
Here is my interview with Brittany:
ME: Where are you from and a little about yourself?
Brittany: I've lived in Ohio all of my life in a little town called Twinsburg. I currently live in Northfield, Ohio about twenty minutes south of Cleveland. I attended Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio and received my Associates of Individualized Study in Social Sciences and Art.
ME: When did you start making the items in your shop?
Brittany: I started making jewelry when I was much younger but stopped until 2009. When I needed a necklace for graduation from college, I wasn't very happy with the selection the stores in the area offered. (Nelsonville consists of one major Highway and a lot of national parks! The largest store around was a Kroger the size of a postage stamp!) After I FINALLY found a suitable necklace at Target, which was 45 miles away, I decided I should try to make my own jewelry so I would never be in the same situation again! Thus, Brittany Chavers Studio was born.
ME: How did you decide the name for your shop?
Brittany: Originally, I opened my shop for my photography. I wanted my photography to be sold under my real name, but I still haven't gotten around to listing any of it! I decided to have the shop for my jewelry instead. I added Studio to Brittany Chavers and I think it has a nice ring to it!
ME: What is your favorite thing about owning your shop and being a seller?
Brittany: I love the creative freedom of being an Etsy seller! It is so much fun to play around with a new idea, develop it and create something new with it. The fact that my awesome customers want to wear my jewelry is just an added bonus!!
ME: What inspires you to create such beautiful pieces?
Brittany: As you can tell from my shop, I love flowers! Well... maybe not real flowers- they attract too many bees! But I love floral designs and try to bring nature into my pieces. New and inventive products also go a long way in the inspiration process. Color inspires me as well; I love bright colors and I'm not afraid to use them!
ME: What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
Brittany: I think my favorite item changes every day! As of today, my favorite item is the Asymmetrical Turquoise Leather Rosette Necklace.. say that three times fast! I love the mix of textures and colors this necklace offers. The soft leather paired with the bold turquoise and delicate, porcelain beads just floats my boat!
Brittany: I am always creating new pieces for the shop! As you can see, I am OBSESSED with asymmetrical necklaces! I have many more in various stages of completion waiting to enter the shop.
ME: Anything else you would like to let us know?
Brittany: I love making custom pieces! if you have something specific in mind or if you see something in the shop that you like, but want different colors, just let me know! I am very convo friendly and I love working to make ideas reality!
Also, I am planning to expand into other areas... eventually :) I love photography, ceramics and scrapbooking and I can't wait to offer creations in those areas as well!
