Featured Artisan: Jewelry-Findings-Supplies
Please start by telling us a little about yourself and your studio.
My name is Nadin. I’m a designer of unique jewelry findings for jewelry pieces. I work at my art studio and all the jewelry findings are invented and created by me. The technique, with the help of which I create jewelry findings, is unique, it is tested by me and my customers.
If there’s one thing that defines you, what is it?
I have a special approach to my artistic work, which gives an opportunity to offer people some things, which they cannot find anywhere else. There are a lot of stamp products at the jewelry market, a lot of them are bad-quality items made in China. The products, which I provide, are hand made by me and the high quality is guaranteed.
What role does your family play in your art?
My family plays an important role in my life and my art. The family is the main source of inspiration. Members of my family like the jewelry findings, which I make, it helps me to create and be sure, that I go the right way.
Where do you live and what is it like?
I live in a wonderful fairy country, the country of everlasting summer. I like my land and enjoy the nature and infinite warm and sunny days.
Where did you learn your medium?
I attended many classes devoted to the development of skills of jewelry art. Self-education plays an important role in the development of my art. I read many books. A lot of them are historical books, which give me information about development of jewelry art during ages, information about tastes and preferences of people in different times, about the progress of jewelry techniques – all these facts help me to make my skills better and results of my work more interesting and creative.
What are your goals with your ArtFire studio?
I want to share my talent with people, to help other jewelry designers to be individual, special. And I hope, jewelry supplies made by me can really do it.
How did you come to selling online?
Firstly, I had some blogs, I got more and more letters(emails) with orders for jewelry supplies. So some day I decided to give a possibility of buying the supplies for more people than those whom I could answer. Online selling – is the best option for this goal.
How did you come to find a home on ArtFire?
I am impressed by the design and professionalism of ArtFire. It’s also great, that one can set a quantity of products he wants to sell.
What is the best piece of advice you can give other artists?
The advice I can give other artists: create something new, work a lot and love what you do, share your experience and never stop studying!
Why do you think that buying and selling handmade products benefits society?
Nowadays millions of uninteresting, identical stamp products made in China take away beauty and diversity of our world. Hand made products in the contrary provide a possibility to be unique and show your individuality to the world.
