Whose In the Spotlight This Week?
Sunshine: Our featured member in the spotlight this week is:
Here is the interview I conducted with Cynthia:
1. Cynthia, when you design a piece of jewelry, where do you get your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from vintage jewelry. It is timeless and made to last. I also look around at my supplies when I am at my desk and things will start coming together.
2. Have you ever gotten any custom orders? If so do you have any tips for other shops who take custom orders?
I have received custom orders. I recommend when you take a custom order that you both communicate well about what is being ordered. Send pictures if can: they are a great help. And double check the order with the customer, because it is so easy for there to be a misunderstand by either party about what the order is.
3. I noticed that you are having a sale in your shop this month. Can you tell us about it?
Thanks for asking because I just changed my sale. Now if you buy a necklace you get a pair of earrings of my choosing for FREE through the month of September and you do not need a coupon code. You can go to my shop to see the details. In October I am expanding into vintage jewelry and purses.
4. What is the one thing you enjoy doing besides making vintage jewelry?
I enjoy spending time with my family. We no longer have children at home, so I enjoy when we get together. I also like to take walks through the small river town we live in with our two dogs.
