Tell us a little about yourself and your business:

I am a 30 yr old stay at home mom, and I've been crafting on and off since I was around 10ish or so. I got into making beaded jewelry around the age of 21 and just gave it away or kept it. I kept making pieces here and there and getting back into the other crafty things that I used to do, and eventually decided I wanted to sell what I made, and so I tried Ebay but to no avail. So I just kept making things as something struck me or my fancy and inspired me. Eventually I found Cafemom where I became aquainted with a group of women known as the Cafemom Street Team, and started selling on Etsy.




What made you get started in your business?:

I've been crafting on and off for around 20ish years and thought it would be good to start selling it as a way to help support our family a little bit with some extra money.

 

Anything else you’d like to share:

I belong to the Cafemom Street Team http://cafemometsymoms.blogspot.com/

 

Tell us about your favorite item currently listed in your shop:

Hmm...My favorite item currently listed in my shop is my Snow and Ice Holiday Sparkle set. I know the holidays are over and hopefully soon the snow and ice will be too, but it is still my favorite.

My Favorite SofaraStarfyre:

 

Polymer clay is such a difficult medium to work with, which makes SofaraStarfyre’s polymer pendants all the more amazing.  My favorite is the Fall Roses Teardrop Pendant.  The roses are beautifully sculpted and seem to cascade off the copper background.
