Featured Artist - Meribella

Who are you? A Mom, A wife, and and artist at heart. I live and breathe to be as creative as possible!

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? http://www.etsy.com/shop/meribella

How did you come up with your shop name? My name is Meridith, but my older sister (who is a self supporting artist) used to call me Meribella......My first born daughter is Isabel but we call her Bella, so the name hit me as perfect...our two names together.


What do you create? Do you create for children or adults, women or men? I create one of a kind sterling silver jewelry. I love to work in sculpture, of children and people. It all started when I was trying to find a jewelry piece representing my children, and all I came across was mass produced, non original pieces.

Most of my work is bought my women and moms, but have had several pieces bought for kids.



What do you like about Etsy? The ease of loading a product at a low cost, and the ability to reach a mass market without leaving your home.

Where do you find inspiration for your products? My children!


What do you love about your business? The satisfaction of being creative and also making money at it.

What is your favorite product(s) right now? My sterling silver mermaid pendant:



What makes you unique at Etsy? I have not found any artist out on Etsy, that make anything close to the wearable people sculptures I do. It is a new twist on the "Mother" jewelry.


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