Friday Etsy Feature - MaddyAnne Handmade Jewelry
|Japanese Garden Earrings|
My mom was the one who actually told me about Etsy. I've created things my whole life, and she told me I should try selling them on here. I soon opened a shop called earthtrendsjewelry. After a while, my style shifted from being 'earthy' to more dainty, and I felt that my shop needed a makeover/clean slate. So I opened up MaddyAnne (which is my name - Madeline Anne).

What are your favorite materials to work with?
I love working with all kinds of materials. Recently, I've been playing around more with cabochons, but I'm sure my brass stamping phase will return soon. I've also been working with a lot of gold. I remember not liking gold a few years ago, and now it's funny that that's all I think about using.

Tell us something about your non-crafting life! What are some of your favorite things? (food, music, movies...)
Well, I've been writing a young adult book for a while now and am excited to be finishing that up. It's been a challenging process but well worth it. I'm also a wife and mother of a three-year-old and an infant, and I work at a credit union during the week. As far as favorite things, I like pretty much all food and am a sucker for the Twilight books. I'm also a huge, nerdy fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender (the series, not the movie). Pretty much my life is hectic and always kept interesting.
