Featured Artist - Fabled Charm Designs

Who are you? My name is Carrie A. Cahill.

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? Fabled Charm Designs -

How did you come up with your shop name? I love fairy tales and use a lot of whimsical designs in my work, so I played around with different words that fit into that motif. I finally decided that the name I chose had a certain ring to it.

What do you create? Do you create for children or adults, women or men? I make handmade jewelry as well as handbags and pouches for gadgets. Mostly my designs are for women, though my gadget pouches could certainly be used by a man. The designs tend to be kind of feminine though.

What do you like about Etsy? The community and ease of use.

Where do you find inspiration for your products? My biggest inspirations are from nature and also from old artwork, especially art nouveau and fairy tale illustrations.

What do you love about your business? Making the product. I love to create things and experimenting with different medias.

What is your favorite product(s) right now? My green wool purse

What makes you unique at Etsy? I use a lot of different styles and color combinations because I can't seem to stick to one style. In local boutiques, this seems to give me an advantage, but on etsy, sometimes it's a disadvantage because I seem to lack a very specific style.

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
