Week of 6/12/11 Featured Etsy Shop

I have chosen to feature GwynndasGems.

Meet Gwynnda Teets, owner of GwynndasGems

I taught myself by copying pieces from the free “How To” at the local arts/crafts stores. In the beginning, my skill level and style had me working with all store bought findings and random beads that looked pretty in the store and I made simple sets for myself. I also gave many away to family and friends. Today, I design and then create original pieces that hold no fabricated/store findings and for me, this is what makes the pieces magical, special and one of a kind.

I am a stay-at-home mom and part-time employee (working with my husband). I have three beautiful daughters and one handsome son. My family and friends are what mean the most to me. My family (and especially my husband!) understands my passion for jewelry. My daughters love what I do and think its awesome because mom can make it or mom can fix it.

It was the people I love most who have encouraged me to try to market my unique jewelry, instead of just giving it away to a select few. And from there, I began to dream of expanding my talent and allowing people from all over to appreciate my special pieces.

I inherited my passion from my grandmother. She loved to make crafts for us and with us when I was a child. My grandmother could take an unpainted porcelain head and turn it into a doll with a little bit of paint, fabric and wire. Because of her, I love hand-made vs. store-bought treasures. I wanted to share this philosophy through my special jewelry with all of you. Etsy is the perfect jumping off place for me and I am making the leap!
