#CIJPopUpMarket #3 Shop – Karen from timetalentjewels

timetalentjewels

1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?

The name of my shop in “timetalentjewels” and the name was inspired that I had the time, the talent and my creations were my jewels. My inspirations just flow within me as if they were God sent.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

My shop has evolved overtime by hard work and inspiration of learning new techniques. My love of knitting and crocheting throughout the years have helped me in the shop. The Wire Crochet of the beaded Necklaces is very fascinating to me especially when shopping for the gemstones, what a treat! Knitting too has its specialties of hunting for the beautiful wool to make the right pair of hiking socks or knitting the wool hot pads and then felting them several times to get them to their proper shape.

3. What do you love most about your work?

What I love about my work is I can do it whenever I want as I am retired. When the shop needs something I can sit down and go to work on it. I don’t feel rushed. I do it when I feel it needs it. It is my hobby.

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I love Country Music – Alan Jackson is my favorite “Livin On Love”, “Remember When”, “Good Time”, “She’s Got the Blues and I’ve Got the Rhythm”, “Jim and Jack and Hank”, Luke Bryan, “Kick Up The Dust” Blake Shelton “Honey Bee”, ”God Gave Me You”, ”The Boy’s Around Here”, George Strait “Amarillo by Morning”, Brad Paisley, “River Bank”, and all the popular ones on the radio. The recent Voice – second winner – Lauren Duski, “Ghost In My House” and “Déjà Vu”. Just too many to list and the list goes on! I never get tired of listening to this music. Just listen to it over and over again!

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

I am not much of a reader, I am more of a doer – I like to keep busy! Never could sit down and read.

6. What are your social media sites?

Women And Jewelry Go Hand In Hand

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

Jewelry and Women are just two of many categories you can search on Etsy to find that perfect item you cannot live without! Christmas in July team has outdone themselves with these spectacular and shiny finds! Whether your taste is vintage,boho,avant garde or classic…take a trip with me.

I am sure most of us have that one item that just makes our jaws drop to the floor in awe and wonder. It must be mine!

Rachel Palmer of 910woolgathering says:

This one of a kind shawl was made from hand dyed wool. I dyed it using natural golden rod flowers for the yellow. I then hand spun it into yarn and wove it on a triangle loom.

Shannon of SimplyTwitterpated let me know:

I make ecofriendly jewelry from fallen trees or recycled lumber. A fallen cedar branch in my yard got a new life when I created these wood slice stud earrings. They include the live edge, giving them a very natural look!

Patti of CrochetGiftsnThings said:

This is the reason I opened a shop on Etsy in the 1st place. I was low on money one Christmas so I made a pair for everyone in my family and they were a big hit. They are my best seller!!

msmadmax of madmaxshop explained:

Throughout the decades, New York City has been a melting pot of exceptional style and unique outfits. As a result, it has become one of the ultimate resources for the finest in vintage fashion and accessories. This enchanting button front lace teddy by FORMFIT was an original 5th Avenue showroom sample.

Nancy of jaysboutiquecrochet told me:

Basically half of my shop is targeted towards women (and the other half towards babies, so check out my “Women’s Slippers” section to see them all. Also, some gift sets for new moms that includes Mother/Daughter crochet slippers. Wonderful stocking stuffers or gifts for any time of the year!

Nicki of OodlesofBling says:

My shop is dedicated to women… probably 98% of my listings are for women.  In the Victorian era, women made jewelry for themselves from shells and paper. There are some very intricate designs still around today.

Amanda Sagarin of eclecticnesting stated:

It’s very hard to sell handmade jewelry here on Etsy because of all the wonderful selections folks have to choose from. I have a passion for making handmade earrings (I have many pairs I’ve made for myself and it brightens my day to wear them!) and would be so grateful and thrilled if a pair spoke to someone as a treat for themselves or a present….

Kelly of ColourscapeStudios shows me:

What women are made of!

Laura of PLANETDIGS2 shows me:

My fav boho, hippie vibe bracelet brings back memories of always being a gypsy for Halloween! I’ve don’e other similar bracelets. There must be many ‘gypsy at heart’ people like me.

Veddma of veddma tells me:

My love and I traveled across Ireland for our honeymoon. Embedded in a castle wall, at the Bunratty Castle, we discovered a black figure of a woman, opening herself up to the universe. We have learned that this figure is a Celtic fertility symbol, Sheela-na-gig, and her images are often found in the castles all over Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England.

Just over a year later, I got pregnant with my first baby. I looked for images of Sheela-na-gig to make myself an amulet. She was the representation of female power, openness, fertility, freedom, and bounty of the universe to me. I drew her and made collages for my birth, and then I have found a lovely pewter charm design. This is how my Sheela-na-gig necklaces were born. Her image filled me with strength and helped me focus to bring my baby into being.

The necklace below is bright green, inspired by the green fields of Ireland that brought this wonderful symbol into my life.

Amy Spock of BeadsandThreadsbyAmy says:

As a plus size woman, I know how difficult it is for us to find larger bracelets that are fashionable and timeless. So, I set about creating this cuff. It fits a larger wrist beautifully, and looks great with blue jeans or evening gowns!

Betty Travell of Lady Snooks explains:

An Ammonite is a creature that lived in the seas between 240 – 65 million years ago and are now extinct. Fossils have always fascinated me, but this one was unusual. I had never seen an ammonite where the bottom portion is a deep red like this. The rest of the fossil is the usual shades of brown and rust.
I wanted to make it special, so I added some very small tourmaline beads along the one edge. I feel this makes it stand out.

Candy frizzell of TrueEarthDesigns states:

I love working with gemstones. I started around 8 years ago making jewelry. I now search for unique, patterns, character stones for my pieces. Like today, I received my order of gemstones and started putting colors and designs together. Beautiful Tigers Eye has so much movement (chatoyancy). All I can say is fun. Here are some of my newest design sets.

I hope you enjoyed this stroll and found something you must have,whether it be for you or someone else!
