Jewels by Jane Give Away

AND THE WINNER IS:JINX!!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

A while back I did a swap with
Jewels by Jane and was sent this amazing button art piece:

I absolutely LOVE it and it will hang proudly in my craft room as soon as the room is finished :) Jane was kind enough to offer to do a give away on my blog! She will design a custom piece for the winner in their favorite colors! But before we get to that - we need to find out about Jane.


Where are you from?
I live in Chattanooga, Tn. I've been here for 18 yrs but I'm originally from Georgia, and I sound like it, LOL!

How did you decide on your shop name?
I actually signed up to buy on Etsy before I started selling, so once I opened my shop the name was already done!

Why did you start your business?
I had been a party plan direct seller for a number of different companies for many years. With the kids schedules and my husband never knowing when he would be called in to work, it just got impossible scheduling parties. So I quit that but wanted to "do" something. I started out by making wreathes from grapevines and ceiling medallions and then I added buttons to a few wooden wreathes and knew I had found my niche..Button Art!!

What types of items do you have?
During the fall I will once again have the button wreaths and during Christmas I will add the button ornaments...both of these items are also made from wood and buttons. But year round, I will have my art...I call it "Feel-Able Wall Art". I do some abstracts, a few of which I stack the buttons for multi layers, as well as "picture" works...just whatever strikes my fancy at the time. I also do custom work, it can be based on a piece I've already done or something different. I especially like doing different sizes...big and little, 14x16, 12x12, 7x7, 5x5...they're all fun.

Do you have something new you will be adding?
Oh yes! And I'm very excited about it. Generally I have my husband or one of the boys cut the wood, I sand it and then another son paints it. But now, I'm starting to use scrapbook papers as the background.. like the one I made for you Audrey. And I'm doing more "stacked" pieces like the one I will do for the winner. I have 2 styles I use, "placed" which is where I glue each individual button for the 2nd and 3rd layer and also the "dropped" method where I cover the first layer in glue and just drop the buttons on it! In my Etsy shop "Ebony and Ivory" was made using the placed method, and "Broken Glass" is using the dropped method

Do you have a blog?
I actually have 2. I have my "everyday life" blog called Jumpin' In The Jungle. This is where I go and rant and rave about life, and I have LOTS of pics of my kids!! And I have just started another blog called MyArt, and it is for just my art work, I wanted a way to keep track of where I started and where I will end up some day!

What inspires you?
Sometimes the wood, sometimes the buttons themselves and sometimes just my own imagination!

Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
It would have to be "BIG Tree". I call it my heart work. I had it sketched out since the late fall and had even bought the buttons for it, but just could never get around to making it. I asked hubby to bring a piece of wood home for me, I use 2X4 sheets of plywood, and the piece he brought me had a beautiful knothole in it. I knew immediately that I wanted it in my tree. I had him cut my wood and then I decided to stain it, and then I sketched it on the wood and completed it in just a few hours, easy to do since I've known for months how I wanted it to look.. a true piece of my heart!

NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
One lucky winner will receive a stacked button 7X7 inch wall hanging, colors of the winner's choice and choice of stacked style, placed or dropped Custom made by Jane!

THIS GIVE AWAY IS CLOSED!!


Audrey's Country Crafts is in no way responsible for the mailing of the prize. After the name is drawn I will contact that person. They have 3 days to respond before another name will be picked! The name and address will be forwarded.
Thank-you for entering!!
