Get To Know - Tradewinds Studios

By Michelle of Evie's Tool Emporium

What is your Etsy shop name?
Tradewinds Studios - it covers all three of my Etsy shops.
How did you come up with that name?
I decided 'where ever the wind takes me', thus Tradewinds. And it looks like I've landed in New Mexico.

What sort of crafting supplies do you sell?
I make and sell stone cabochons.
Favorite website(s) aside from Etsy?
There are websites other than Etsy??! Oh. let's see . . . Facebook is fun, but I want to share this. It's Astronomy Picture of the Day. Nifty and informative.

Do you craft yourself? If so, what do you like to make?
In addition to lapidary, I also crochet.

Please tell us one thing that nobody would know about you.
I own a 10 inch Dobsonian telescope - and 4 smaller ones.
What is your favorite thing to make for dinner?
Green Chile.

What goals do you have for your shop over the next year?
I'd like to expand now that have established the shop. Sell more, of course, and I love to make custom orders for people.
If you sell on other venues, where else can we find your items?
My website is and I have a page where you can see jewelry made with my cabs.
