FIREFLY MYST ARTISAN JEWELRY
Tell us a little bit about your shoppe.
I never imagined myself as a jewelry designer. The kit my husband gave me as a Christmas gift in 2007 sat in a closet for almost two years before I even tried my hand at it. So in the summer afternoon in 2009 I pulled the kit off the closet shelf. Within a short time, I was hooked. After my husband offered to make me some custom stoneware beads and focals, the idea behind Firefly Myst Artisan Jewelry came to life. Shortly after establishing my Etsy shop in 2010, I added my jewelry supplies to my shop.
What is your favorite product from your shoppe and why?
Firefly Myst Artisan Jewelry Etsy shop has a collection of handcrafted bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, as well as jewelry supplies for designers. My favorite piece is the sun/moon face bracelet.
What do you like best about The Artisan Group?
As a member of The Artisan Group, Firefly Myst Artisan Jewelry participated in the 2012 GBK MTV Movie Awards Celebrity Gifting Lounge in Hollywood, CA. I have also gifted talk show host and TV chef, Rachael Ray and singer Paula Abdul, as a member of TAG. What I like about being a member of The Artisan Group is the opportunity to network with other small-business owners like myself. TAG provides support and guidance in sales and marketing strategies, also.
Collette recently participated as a display participant in a luxury celebrity gift lounge on June 1-2, 2012 at L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, in honor of the The 2012 MTV Movie Awards Nominees and Presenters.
