GemGemz Earrings

AND THE WINNER IS: JAKIESMOM!!
CONGRATULATIONS!


It's always so nice when amazing jewelry shops contact me to do a give away!
GemGemz is such a shop. She has some truly wonderful jewelry and a really great give away prize!

Where are you from? tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi my name's Gemma and I am from London England, I work in the animation industry full time and create in my spare time. I am around about 5ft 2inches tall (so short!) and I am 23 years old.

How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
I decided to start Gemgemz when i was at college studying for my degree, i bought some earrings from a young girl on holiday that she had made and i thought, "wow I'd like to do that" so I went home and found a brilliant website which I order all my supplies from and began creating at home and selling to friends. I then held a jewelery party at my house and invited some friends, i was so scared but that evening i made over £200.00! so I then started hosting parties for friends and family. A few months later whilst flicking through blog links I managed to stumble upon Etsy. I was hooked instantly, first i set up an account to purchase some bits but then I thought I'd give it a go and try selling.

I got the name for my shop from my own name, I thoughts of Gems gems but I googled it and found another already existing, as did Gemgems so I changed the s to a z and we were away!

What or Who inspires you to create?
I love nature, i have to walk at least once a day or i get frustrated, nature brings you back to your roots and grounds me and i am instantly inspired by its shapes and colours. I am also inspired by music such as Fleetwood Mac, Mumford and Sons and Laura Marling, they all help me to get into the mental zone of creativity.

What do you like about being a seller?
I love the freedom to create and the thought of having a little business that is all yours that you hand built, it's a very comforting and rewarding feeling.

Whats your supply addiction? is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I tend to buy a lot of Pink beads but I don't seem to use them all that much they just build up in a pot. My other addiction to create is earrings, you can never have too many and they are a cheap little present if the customer doesn't want to spend too much.

Do you have a blog?
Yes is do it's, www.sandyfloorboards.blogspot.com, it is basically my home for ramblings, drawings and all sorts of stuff that interests me. I love it and I'd be lost without it. Please pop by I'd love to meet a few new faces.

*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I work full time in the animation industry in London which is a job I absolutely love! I also like to swim, read, write and draw and paint. So i guess you could say im an all round creative person really.

Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
It was the heart of candy I liked making it because I made the whole thing from bending the shape to securing it and wrapping and beading and it came out just like I was imagining. It is also a bit different for me.

Are there other places on the net we can find you?
Yes I am on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=303144726830, and Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/48207187@N02/
