Featured Artist of the Week: Pamela Kucera creator of Penelope & Anastasia

Name and Business name:
I'm Pamela Kucera and my Jewelry business name is Penelope & Anastasia

Tell us a little about yourself and your business:
I have my fingers in so many creative projects, it's seriously ridiculous! Jewelry is one that lasted the test of time (just celebrated my 5th anniversary in business!) I currently dream up projects and then make them come to life around my 2 year old's mood - lol. Staying at home with our daughter and making jewelry is an absolute dream come true!

What made you get started in your business?:
I've always been a jewelry lover...who disagrees with Cocoa Chanel's comment of taking off one piece before leaving the house! Started making my own creations and when I started getting requests...the business was born.

Anything else you’d like to share:
I'm up to my elbows in www addictions! I'm an Etsy girl, a facebooker (which has helped me immensely with sales) and a twitterer too! It's easy to get caught up playing online and not working in the studio...I have to tell myself to go work - lol!

Tell us about your favorite item currently listed in your shop:
My favorite now would be... The Meredith Earrings; simple in design, but they add such a pop to your day!

My favorite from Penelope & Anastasia: Penelope & Anastasia offers so many beautiful, colorful pieces that I thought it would be hard to choose just one. Then I saw her Scarlet Earrings. I have to say that I really don't think I've ever seen earrings quite like them. These earrings are beautiful and sure to get noticed!
