Feature Friday - Casual Goddess - And Winner Announced

What is the background on your business name?

I called my hand made jewelry shop on Etsy "Casual Goddess" because I specialize in casual jewelry for everyday wear. All my jewelry is really colourful, most of it being hand painted on ceramic, with designs that are distinctively my own. The "Goddess" part comes from my own connection with Goddess energy. However, while some of my pieces are of goddesses themselves, I incorporate many other motifs. Much of my jewelry is unisex as well.

Where are you located?

I currently live in Manitoba's Interlake region, not far from Arborg.

What do you sell?

I offer pendants, pins, hair accents, rings, buttons and bracelets, some of which are glazed, kiln fired stoneware or porcelain pieces, and some of which are hand painted with acrylics on stoneware. I am happy to customize colours.

What do you enjoy about creating your jewelry?

What do I enjoy about creating my jewelry? I have to say that I love playing with colour, and I love utilizing many subjects in my jewelry design, from birds and animals, mermaids and goddesses, flowers and symbols. The subject matter is so varied. No two pieces are ever alike. I love to have fun with jewelry.

What inspires your creations?

I am inspired by colour as well as by the natural world, and by creating wearable art that no one else creates. I also love hearing back from my customers who tell me that they received a lot of compliments on one of my pendants, for example. That, for sure, inspires me to want to create more. Even the smallest pendant can be an eye catching conversation piece. It really is great when you hear people are talking about your designs!
