Giveaway! - Silver Fox Gems ( Ended )

Pin It


Another Thursday - Another Giveaway!

This weeks giveaway is from Silver Fox Gems who is giving away Flower Gemstone Earrings !

Read ahead to learn more about this gifted jewelry designer, and see how to enter for your chance to win!

This giveaway is open Worldwide!


When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?
Some of my earliest memories were of making something and that's pretty much been my whole life in one form or another. I've always been interested in learning something new. I've always painted, and when I was younger I got into making tsumami kanzashi, which of course evolved from doing origami with my dad when I was a little girl.
Jewelry is sort of a new adventure for me and I'm loving every minute of it. It's so rewarding to not only create with my own hands, but to see the enjoyment that someone else derives from wearing something that makes them feel good.


Do you work outside of your Etsy shop? If so, how do you find time for both?
I work full time outside of my jewelry business. It currently helps pay for supplies, though I hope one day to be able to cut back to just making jewelry. It can be tricky balancing both, but I like to make jewelry to relax and unwind from a busy day at work. I feel that if I am passionate about making jewelry, I will make time to do it.




How did you learn about Etsy?
It's been so long I can't even remember! I came to Etsy as a buyer way back in like 2007 and have been hooked ever since. It would take me years to figure out what I wanted to sell there, but I have been snapping up goods ever since.





When did you start your shop?
I started my shop earlier this year after making a bit of jewelry, selling locally, and teaching myself some new techniques. I knew from the beginning it was something I wanted to do. It was a bit intimidating at first but I'm so glad I have taken the plunge and joined the Etsy community!






Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
Nature, mostly. Mother Nature never seems to run out of creativity, I hope she doesn't mind me stealing some of her designs!






Is there a certain item with a story behind it?
There are several items in my shop that have Arabic names on them, a little tribute to the wonderful Middle Eastern Studies program I was a part of at Florida State University. Plus, the names are very pretty!




Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
Don't get discouraged! It's so easy to see low stats or other shops whizzing right by you, but if you're in it for the long haul be prepared to do some waiting. Oh, and learning. You'll be doing a lot of that, so keep an open mind and don't be afraid to ask for advice or help when you know you need it.








Do you have a Facebook fan page? Twitter?








Fun Questions to Get to Know You:


What is the furthest place you have traveled?
Panama. My mom's family is from there and when I was young we used to go every summer. These days I make it down there every couple of years, but each time is a great experience.


Which bad habits drive you crazy?
I'm naturally impatient, so when I'm ready to go, I'm ready to GO. So if you're committed to doing something with me, be ready!

Do you have any pets? 
I have two very silly beagle boys named Charlie and Baxter. When they aren't running around sniffing outside or inside taking a nap they are usually trying to get some attention... and this is usually when I'm trying to work.


If you could get back a lost item from your past, what would it be?
Oh man. Just one item? I think I have enough lost stuff to fill boxes. I think I would like to see a lot of the artwork that I made as a kid, but I had so much of it that it was probably inevitable that it would go missing.

What is your favorite food?
Tacos, hands down. They're just so versatile and you can stuff them full of anything. I think I probably have tacos about twice a week.





* What You Can Win *


Flower Gemstone Earrings - $75 Value
These earrings are made with labradorite and smoky quartz gemstones and gold fill wire.

I LOVE them all - but my most favorite favorite is probably #11 - Feather tassle gemstone necklace with labradorite and topaz - I just LOVE this one which I have Etsy "hearted" and also shared on both FB & Twitter! But honestly each and every one is gorgeous! (Silver Fox Gems is one of my most favorite Jewelry stores on Etsy and anywhere!)
