What tag categories do you specialize in? jewelry, guitar straps

Do you create for children or adults, women or men? adults.. mostly women but I have had quite a few guys buy my guitar straps!

What do you like about Etsy? Oh what is there NOT to like? The community, the craftsmanship, the variety (you really can find anything on Etsy) and most importantly the ability to buy all handmade!

Where do you find inspiration for your products? music (Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, Juliana Hatfield, Tegan and Sara), books, my active imagination.

What do you love about your business? the fact that I can make whatever I want, whenever I want and no one is above or below me. I can just be myself.

What is your favorite product right now? It would have to be my two wrapped wire hearts: The Red One and the Dark Heart.

What makes you unique at Etsy? hmm.. My guitar straps don't look anything like any other guitar straps at Etsy and I don't see many wrapped seed bead pendants either.

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create? I am also a musician. Synthetic Sympathies is the name of the band I sing and play guitar in www.myspace.com/syntheticsympathies and I also have a personal website www.lisambello.com
