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.
