Tell us about your business.I started doing jewelry as a hobby many years ago, and my style was always changing and evolving until I finally found what I am good at. Last year I started selling in Etsy and the business has skyrocketed once I started putting more effort into it, to the point that I might need to quit my day job to be able to fulfill my orders! I have come far and developed my refined line of seed bead jewelry and I want to distinguish myself from the rest of the designers who work with seed bead jewelry . Made by hand, one-at-a-time in Miami, Florida, my shop offers a refreshing perspective at the traditional seed beads, focusing on quality (always glass, never plastic), craftsmanship, adding a modern twist to the designs, and combining trendy colors.
What makes your business stand out?My business is unique because I have certain qualities that not everyone has (not all of them together anyways): I provide outstanding service to my customers; I have good taste when it comes to color combinations; I have excellent craftsmanship, something that is not easy to do when working with seed beads; and I am very resourceful when it comes to custom orders. I listen to the client and I always execute successfully. My jewelry is a unique collection that you won't find anywhere else, and I offer very affordable prices for high quality. Brides love my necklaces since the colors can be customized to their special wedding themes.
What's the best business advice you've received?Think BIG.
