Visual Sentiments has some of the most beautiful pendants I have seen on Etsy! Melissa uses Vintage Illustrations while making her pendants, they are just simply amazing! And one lucky person will get to pick the one they LOVE! :)
Where are you from?
I'm from a little suburb right outside of Philadelphia, PA.
Why did you start your business?
I love the process of creating my pendants, and I love to see the finished result. I'm often sad to part with them, but excited and hopeful that who I am sending it to will love it as much as I do.
What or who inspires you?
I'm inspired by the stories and artwork that I loved as a child, that now as an adult I get to revisit by sharing them with my own child.
What do you like about being a seller?
Once everybody in the house is settled down for the night, I get a few hours to myself of relatively uninterrupted creative time. It's my quiet time to relax and unwind. I love having something I love to do that I can completely focus on and loose myself in for an hour or two.
I think that is what I most enjoy.
What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I spend my free time with my husband and little girl. We love being out doors and frequent the local parks, playgrounds, and zoo.
Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
One of my favorite images I use is from the Grimm's Fairy Tale 'Little Sister and Little Brother'.
It's was always one of my favorite stories and I think the illustration by Mabel Lucie Attwell is lovely.
Are there other places on the net we can find you?
