FEATURED ETSY SHOP - BluKatDesign by Heather

(CLICK on item's title above to learn more about it.)

WELCOME, Heather and her Etsy shop BlueKatDesign.  Heather designs some very stunning and gorgeous "upcycled vintage and modern jewelry"!  You really must pay a visit to BlueKatDesign after you read Heather's interview below.  Her jewelry designs are truly amazing.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?

I have been a jeweler for over 35 years and doing it professionally for over 30. I had some vintage items so naturally wanted to make something out of them. I discovered this was a lot of fun so I decided to make more to sell.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?

This is what I have been doing since high school!

What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?

Creating a fun fashionable piece out of a clunky old earring or a pretty vintage flower that is unique, totally wearable and in style today!

If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?

Fruit; colorful like a vintage flower!

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your "creativity", what would that be and why?

Miniatures; I also make dollhouse miniatures or paint.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?

 I think people like to wear something different, unique and one of a kind and make their own statement!

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

Make and sell what you love.

Thanks, Heather, for giving us an insight into your thoughts/ideas and sharing your beautiful jewelry with us.
