Shop Etsy | Michelle V Designs + Giveaway!

5/18/2013

Hi everyone! Today I have a special guest who makes the most amazing leather goods I've ever seen! Her name is Michelle, and she runs an etsy shop called Michelle V. Designs.

***
Hi my name is Michelle, and I run an Etsy shop called Michelle V. Designs. I have been a creator all my life. Most of my life has consisted making and selling something. It is what drives me and brings me pleasure. I love to create, taking raw materials and making something out of them is a great job and I love my job! I have been lucky to spend the last 30 years doing what I love.

My jewelry shop began a few years ago after I spent a summer nursing a broken wrist. I had fallen and broke my wrist in two places and it was the first time I ever broke a bone and I had to completely stop creating and work on recovery. It gave me time to think about what I wanted and where I was going creatively. At the time, I had been doing quilt art and designing patterns to sew. It was fun but I wanted a change, I had been sewing my whole life and was ready for something new. My daughter convinced me to sign up for a jewelry class at the end of that summer and having not created anything for several months I was up for something new and completely different. I fell in love with working with metal, it was interesting and I love learning new things.

I also love words, thoughts and things that make me think, things that inspire me and touch me and motivate me. So I began working on bringing the two together in a wonderful way that allows my customers to create a unique piece of jewelry that speaks to them. Here in the shop you can customize things with your own personal thoughts and words. It can be fun, goofy, sweet, loving, motivational, personal, whatever your thought you can have it to wear with you every day or to give to someone special. Each cuff is custom made, words, colors, sizes, details are all options each customer has to create a piece that they will love. Customizing it allows me to pay attention to the individual and not just make something that is a stock piece.
***
Now I've picked out some of my favorite pieces from her shop. And the best thing, a lot of her items are super affordable! These bracelets would be great to give to parents, children, friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, or whoever you want.

P.S. For those of you who were wondering why the GFC widget is no longer on my sidebar, it was because every time I hit preview on my layout, it would show an error sign. I was finally fed up with it, so I decided to remove it. It might be temporarily. But I've included a link on the sidebar so if you want you can still follow through GFC. I just think that this looks cleaner.

    My favorite piece is the "Fear Nothing" bracelet. Ive succeeded through many challenges in my life including being in the military and deploying to Iraq. This saying is very inspiring and gives me the strength to overcome anything!
