Get to Know - ShipwreckedCreation

What is your Etsy shop name?

How did you come up with that name? I have 'treasures' that all beader's need to complete their creations, from start to finish. I picture a treasure chest opening in front of young and hopeful eyes and once the lid is pryed open there it is, full of treasures from a shipwrecked pirates ship. I imagine me just digging in, like in the movies! HAHA!

What sort of crafting supplies do you sell?
Sterling silver, copper,Gold filled, argentium findings,beads and more. I like things that are different if I can find them. I figure that all beader's have their own style and flare. I like to try to express that in some of my special findings as well as the necessary needs.

Do you craft yourself? If so, what do you like to make? I am a fellow beader myself. I like to make all kinds of jewelry that fits the mood of the moment. I also make very unique windchimes that are an actual art piece that does capture the wind as well, known as 'Recycled Wind'. They are 3D pieces that are hard to view with a flat picture as they can be turned to view all sides of this art piece. I've also painted and worked with metal years ago but no longer in the heat of the metal.

Please tell us one thing that nobody would know about you.
Gosh.. I'm an opened book to most that know me, or so I think I am. I did a painting for Walt Disney World in my college days. Not many know that

What is your favorite thing to make for dinner? Something spicy mostly. Cajun perhaps or something with lots of garlic and flavor.

What goals do you have for your shop over the next year? To be bigger and have 5 times the selection.

If you sell on other venues, where else can we find your items? I'm only an etsy girl. I attend shows for my jewelry and findings but online, etsy only.
