Artisan Spotlight: bluegreenandpink
I’m in high school and super active in sports mostly softball. The outdoors are my life and most of my days are spent outside. I started making jewelry when I was around seven or eight so it has been around me for a long time and I really, really enjoy it. I also make beauty videos on YouTube.
What role does your family play in your art?
My family is definitely my biggest support and offer bunches and bunches of advice.
Where did you learn your medium?
I actually learned how to make jewelry from my best friend Erin when we were little kids and it stuck.
How did you come to selling online?
I wanted to be able to start my own business and sell my jewelry to a broader audience then just garage sales and craft shows.
I found Artfire when I was looking for an online platform and loved the site and the personal level and feel it had to it.
Why do you think that buying and selling handmade products benefits society?
It helps the little people and small business owners, I love being able to relate to companies, and knowing where things are coming from: people behind the company and not just some robot or factory worker who doesn’t care. I feel that handmade items are made with love and care and I feel they can be a lot more high quality than a lot of the other China made stuff.
