Meet Tara, owner of the Etsy shop Starletta Designs and one of my lovely sponsors for the month of June!
Tara is creates one of a kind (or limited quantity) handmade jewelry that is absolutely beautiful. Picture 14kt Gold or Sterling Silver with fun gemstones! Tara was kind enough to answer some questions to let us get to know her a little better! Take it away Tara!
Tara: I picked up my first DIY kit at a craft store many, many years ago. I think about 15 years sounds right. I grew up in a very crafty family; my mom would always enter into craft shows and fairs, so it became second nature to me. Nowadays, I love to create new pieces as it gives me a creative outlet and allows me to keep my hands and mind busy!
Tara: It’s hard to pick, but I’m partial to bright colors, so I would have to say either:
Tara: So many things! I would have to say that music is a big inspiration as there aren’t many times I’m not working in my studio without the music on. I can also find inspiration in color combinations I’ve been hoping to try, gemstones themselves, photography and of course, current fashion trends.
Tara: I try to support fellow handmade artists as much as possible, so I buy a ton on Etsy– including bath and beauty products, clothing, accessories, supplies, gifts and artwork. Heck, I even purchased my wedding dress from a designer on Etsy sight unseen and it was the best wedding related purchase I made! But, if I can’t find something there or I am in a hurry my second places to shop are ModCloth, Forever21, Aeropostale.
