Featured Artist - Fabled Charm Designs

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

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? Fabled Charm Designs - http://fabledcharmdesigns.etsy.com



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?

Featured Artist - Raspberry Crochet

Who are you? Christine Lowe

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? RaspberryCrochet - http://raspberrycrochet.etsy.com



How did you come up with your shop name? After going through and discarding many names, I heard the song “Raspberry Beret” by Prince on the radio and that made the decision for me.

What do you create? Do you create for children or adults, women or men? I create scarves and hats for now for men, women and children. Soon, I plan on creating afghans.



Where do you find inspiration for your products? My inspiration is color and texture. I love the bulky and super bulky yarns for their “heft” and their feel. The medium weight yarns also offer lots of variety in color and patterns that encourage me to create. I see colors that I like and want to put together and eventually it becomes a scarf or a hat!

What do you love about your business? I love the fact that I can take a project anywhere.
