Please introduce yourself. Who are you, where do you live?
Pam Hurst Hill, and I live in the western suburbs of Philadelphia PA
How would you describe your work / style?
Eclectic and natural. I'm not a sparkly kind of girl!! I try to create things that are not the same old, same old. Like this piece:
Who, or what, inspires you?
New beads will do it for me every time!! Also nature, other sellers, magazines, or a really cool beer label like in these:
What made you decide to start selling your work?
I had created more items than I could ever wear in many years! Everyone told me I should try selling the designs, so I did.
Do you have a website or blog address?
How did you learn your craft? How long have you been creating?
I started the way many people have – no one sold what I wanted to wear! I’ve always been the crafty type, as in I can paint/modify/improve that. Drives my family crazy!! So when the necklace I was looking for didn’t exist, I headed off to the craft store, bought the supplies and made it myself. One necklace led to two, then some simple earrings, stretchy bracelets, how-to websites, jewelry design books, etc., etc., etc. I've been on Etsy about 9 months now with 108 sales to date!
Is there any other craft skill you would like to learn?
Photography! I'm a wanna-be photographer, without a good camera or much training.
Anything exciting planned that you’d like to share?
