Fabulous Feature Interview "Pieces of Me Pendants"

Special tonight for all of you readers, an interview with the person behind Indie Craft Corner. For your viewing/reading pleasure...

Pieces of Me pendants

Tell us a little about yourself and your story! What’s your real name, where did come up with your shop name, where are you located?

My name is Lisa and I live in London, Ontario, Canada, which is located about 2 hours from Detroit. For the past 10 years I’ve been doing accounting, which usually is among the least creative things one can do (unless one worked for Enron) and decided I wanted a change.

I’ve been doing a variety of crafts just for fun since I was a little girl and have always enjoyed the creativity involved so when a friend told me about Etsy I thought I’d try selling some of my creations online and it’s been a bigger success than I ever could have initially imagined.

Do you do any other crafts?

Over the years I’ve done a variety of crafts and creative things. Every Christmas for a number of years I’d make up elegant Christmas wreaths for friends and family and every once in a while would have people ask me to make one for them.

I love painting, mostly with oils, though I also do acrylic and watercolour painting as well. My favourite artists are Turner, Macke, Cezeanne, and other impressionists such as Monet, Manet, Sisley, etc.
What are some of your favorite pieces you have up on etsy right now?
I tend to like the simpler, cleaner, more minimalist designs that I have.

Where do you do your work?

I have a home studio. My studio faces the street so I can watch the world go by.

Tell the readers one random, fun, thing about yourself :)

I once had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ingong hills … oh wait that’s not my story but I kind of wish it was. Actually I love old movies and vintage/antique things. I like the history of things, knowing that they had a history before me and wonder who owned them and what their story is. I love that my pendants are part of that now. I’ve sold pendants all over the planet and love the idea that someone in Australia or Russia or Sweden, or Idaho is wearing one of my creations.

Well it's been a pretty awesome and restful day! I got a lot of work done and finally had some quality down time. Grandma even pushed some more Sunday chocolate on me and I'm in a delightful stupor:) More tomorrow...
