Welcome to day one!
Todays First item is brought to you by me :O)
A bit about me...
I'm Canela the artist behind Cinnamon*Sticks. I Married to an amazing man, Robert. We live in CA with our 6 kiddies.
I've been making jewelry for 17 years now. I've spent the last three learning metal smithing.
How did I get started creating...
I've been making jewelry ever since I could remember. Making rings out of phone wire, bracelets out of fiber and buttons, but when I was 7 or 8 my parents took me to a jewelry shop with them to get my mom a new wedding ring. The jeweler let me checkout the tools and try a 6 carat diamond ring. That was it I knew I would be making jewelry for the rest of my life!
Favorite materials to work with....
Silver! copper, natural stones, hand made lampwork beads, pearls.
Favorite Christmas memory...
When Rob and I were dating he knew how much I loved Christmas. He went out and bought a little tree and a few decorations for it and surprised me by having it all set up in his apartment when I came to visit. He hates decorating and doing crafty things so it was so very special :O)
Every Christmas since comes close though. Watching the kids faces when we go look at Christmas lights and on Christmas morning.
Where do you sell?
I sell mostly through my etsy shop cinnamonsticks I sell in a few boutiques and at an occasional craft show
