weekly giveaway - Sumiko shop:

August 30, 2010

Evelyn is just the sweetest person you'll ever come across. She makes really beautiful pieces and lives in the wonderful ITALY! She runs (i'd love to live there any day) Sumiko shop, filled with pretty necklaces and earrings, I especially love her Charlotte brooches - they're so unique! This week you have the chance to win a $40 gift certificate towards anything in Evenlyn's shop! be sure to stop by and visit her at the usual social networking sites:


Hello! Please tell us a little about yourself! My name is Evelyn, I’m 29 years old and the mother of a beautiful boy named Brian. I live in a tourist town by the sea, in Italy. I spend a lot of time with my son, which is why I can spare the time to create and experiment with new things. I am crazy about travelling and would gladly travel around the world. I love adventure and unspoiled places… white beaches …the sun ... my dream would be to live somewhere warm all year round.

How did you get started making your beautiful jewelry? I have always had a passion for sewing clothes for myself, since I went to a fashion design school, but I also loved unique and original accessories, and I found such a joy in creating them, or seeing people wear them.

I never stopped creating whether it was clothes or accessories, but I decided to open my little shop only two years ago, around July 2008.

My collections vary greatly in style, but they all tend to be feminine, elegant and youthful. I love using vintage components, and sometimes there is a fairy tale touch to my jewelry.

Your pictures are lovely! What camera do you use? I bought my Nikon D80 a few months later that I realized that to sell on etsy, I had to have some quality photos. I never studied photography so all my photos are not really professional, but I do everything possible to improve them every day.
