Interview With DevineDesignsJewelry

Meet Cindy of DevineDesignsJewelry

Who are you?
I am a veterinary technician by trade;started making jewelry a little over a year ago. I have always been creative, ( I used to sew and make swimsuits for friends). I went to beauty school a long time ago, with the intention of becoming a make-up artist, but never did pursue that career.
What do you create?
I make wire, metal, and beaded jewelry designs. Mostly in sterling silver or copper, with artisan made lamp work beads and/or gemstone beads.
How did you get started?
I am a jewelry junkie. Have always been buying artisan made jewelry, and always wanting to tweak a piece to my liking. While in Target, I was looking at some beading magazines, decided to buy one, bought some supplies, really enjoyed creating, and the rest,as they say, is history.
What is unique about your jewelry?
I try to make my jewelry items different than any thing you may have seen. I only make a piece once, so my jewelry is "one of a kind". I am a member of Self-representing jewelry artists: SRAJD#1658.
What has challenged you?
I think my biggest challenge has been the economic crisis of the past year.
What is you favorite feature on etsy?
My favorite feature on Etsy, I would have to say is The Storque, because you can find so much information there. How to set up your shop, business advise, & features on shop owners.

What other interests do you have?
Reading, yoga, my cats, tattoos, mythology, the beauty of nature & shopping!
Where do you live?
I'm in Tarpon Springs; been here 15 years now, originally from just outside of Philadelphia, Pa.
Where else can we find out more about you?

What Super power would you like to have?
I would have to say that I have a fondness for Wonder Woman. So not so much 1 super power, but I love the whole idea of a strong woman, capable of doing any thing, including physical strength, bullet proof (loved those bracelets!) And the power to make people tell the truth, now that's something! Although I'm not sure I would want to know every body's thoughts!

Cindy's jewels are beautifully made with intricate details and color schemes! Go browse her shop and enjoy the various styles all in one location!
