Featured Artist - Designs By Denise

Who are you? Denise McLachlan

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? Designs By Denise - www.demdesigns.etsy.com

What tag categories do you specialize in? Jewelry, silver, gold, crystals, accessories

Do you create for children or adults, women or men? Women

What do you like about Etsy? I like Etsy because it's almost all hand made items

Where do you find inspiration for your products? My inspiration comes from the materials that I use to make the pieces. I choose materials that I like and the piece evolves from there. When I'm making jewelry for a specific person I make it based on the personality of the person. Right now I'm working with beach colors, because I love the beach and summer weather and I'm missing Florida a little. I moved here from Florida about a year ago.

What do you love about your business? I love the creativity and being able to make jewelry that people will enjoy.

What is your favorite product right now? I'm just learing to work with sterling and gold wire. I've made 2 bracelets already, one is in my Etsy store. I love to learn new things that give me a challenge, so right now it's my favorite.

What makes you unique at Etsy? I think my style of jewelry makes me unique. Each person puts a little of themselves into what they make so even if we had the exact same materials each person that makes jewelry would come up with something different. My jewelry reflects my creative spirit.

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create? My personal site is www.JewelryByDM.com
