Giveaway: $20 store credit to SunshineJewls

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Oh my! The Wallflower Style's first ever giveaway! //happy dance// Here today is Lindsay! She is a talented Canadian (represent!) artist who has created some pretty amazing jewellery that any girl would love to wear. Her Etsy shop is SunshineJewls and her regular online shop with the same name Sunshine Jewls are filled with elegant pieces that reminds you of a white sanded beach and the bright clear blue ocean. Enjoy the quick interview and scroll down for our giveaway!


Please tell us a little about yourself, Lindsay.

Hi! I'm Lindsay, I live and breathe the beautiful west coast with my two amazing little boys, my high-school-sweetheart-turned-husband and precious chocolate lab Bella :) When I'm not busy designing or creating, I'm usually chasing my kids, cooking, playing sports, reading, cooking or shopping!

What first got you started into crafting?

I have always been into crafts since the day I discovered my local "Michaels" store. Sketching and acrylic painting were my favorite. When I was 12, one of my friends gave me a vial of beads and taught me how to make a necklace, and my passion blossomed from there! I started selling at a local gift shop, and since have grown to sell my pieces in several shops on Vancouver Island, as well as online in my etsy shop!

Do you get any artist blocks? If so, how do you get out of them?

I play! I used to spend hours twiddling my thumbs staring at beads, twisting wire, trying to come up with something (especially during the hectic Christmas rush), but I have learned that there are times I need to put everything down, go play outside, walk on the beach, go for a hike, soak in my surroundings! When I am enjoying myself that is when I get the most inspired to be creative and design the best work.

What is your favourite piece that you have created?

I have two! My hand wrapped anchor necklaces are one of my favorites (as no two are ever the same). We spend a lot of time at the docks and on the water on my husband's boat and the anchor necklaces feel extra special to me. My other favorite is my bird's nest necklaces. Again, each one is slightly unique but as my husband is away several months of the year for work, and I'm home with my two boys, the bird's nest reminds me of the close bond the three of us share in our tightly woven nest :)



How would you describe your crafts in a sentence?

Modern, simple, everyday, nature-inspired designs.

As indicated by how many items/designs I (Salleefur) have Etsy "hearted/favorited" at Sunshine Jewls, choosing just one favorite, is quite impossible for me...

But for the sake of this entry, I will say that among my most favorite favorites are the Icy Volcano Necklace, the Cupcake Cherry Cluster Earrings and the Crackled Snake Fire Agate Earrings.
