Etsy Find --- juliethefish designs -- giveaway too!

cupcakeMAG's featured etsy designer: juliethefish designs

We review many items on a daily basis......and we have never gotten so many compliments from a piece of jewelry before until juliethefish designs and the personalized necklace above (and below!) - almost everyday the question, "Where did you get that necklace?" is asked - it grabs quite a bit of attention. It also helps that the super sweet designer quickly personalizes and gets them to you with ease. The simple yet super chic designs fill the pages of her Etsy shop with so many different items to choose from it is hard to just pick one!

But, we do love our I love you to the moon and triple layer necklace. Whatever you are looking for, whether it be a gift for that someone special or something for yourself - you can find a little jewel for everyone and what is better then having it customized and HANDmade....well, nothing - because it doesn't get better than that!

When did you begin making jewelry?
I’ve been making beaded jewelry since I was a little girl. My passion for hand stamped jewelry started about two years ago. One of my friends had a simple hand stamped necklace and I thought, “I wonder if I could make that.” That’s how my etsy shop began.

What is your favorite piece to create?
I love creating new designs. Coming up with an idea and then bringing it to life is very exciting. I really like making my square name necklace. With this piece I start with a slab of sterling silver and hand cut and file it. I like all the work that goes into it. I always feel happy with the result.

What is the most popular or bestseller in the shop?
My sterling silver “I love you to the moon and back” is a huge hit. It can be personalized with a little name charm and birthstone as well. I think this phrase means something special to a lot of people and so the necklace speaks to them.

When do you get inspired to design jewelry? I am always inspired by my customers and their stories. I love creating new designs as special orders for customers. Also, at home when I have short, quiet (precious) moments to think I really enjoy sketching new designs.

Lucky for our cupcakeMAG readers juliethefish designs is giving one lucky reader their Classic Name Birthstone Necklace to personalize with anything up to 12 letters along with a birthstone or pearl.
