Silver Sunshine

AND THE WINNER IS:
CHERYL F. (THE LUCKY LADYBUG)!!
CONGRATULATIONS!
Logan picked number 13 this morning,  Thank-you to everyone who entered!



Silver Sunshine
is a wonderful jewelry shop on Etsy. Hannah is from Maryland and has been on Etsy since Oct. 2008.





#1. How did you decide on your shop name?
Originally, I was selling my jewelry under the name of Young Designs (this was before I started on Etsy); but I thought that was kind of unexciting and wanted to think up a different name. I was sitting on my bed, looking at the sunset, when all of a sudden “SilverSunshine” popped into my head. I fell in love with it and have been using it ever since!


#2. When did you start crafting?
I mark the date around age 12, which is when I first started using a sewing machine. I began selling doll dresses when I was fourteen, and I was sixteen when I was first introduced to jewelry-making by a lady from my church.


#3. What or who inspires you?
I probably get inspired most by looking at jewelry-making magazines, like BeadStyle; or retail jewelry catalogs, like Sundance (their stuff is so pretty!). Really neat beads or components in bead supply catalogs will inspire me too.


#4. Do you have a day job?
Not at the moment--I don’t work during the school year because I am in college, but I am currently looking for some part-time summer work.


#5. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
Oh boy--I don’t know! I enjoyed making all of them! If I had to choose one, though, I suppose it would be my “Jena” earrings, simply because my favorite color is red and I love wire-wrapping.

Hannah is offering this beautiful bracelet as the give away prize!!
