Interview with Lauren from Lauren Rose Jewelry
First, introduce yourself to my readers, Lauren:
Hi! I’m Lauren, I have a BFA in Fine Arts and Design from a college I have attended in New York City and am back in college working towards a masters. My style every since I was a child was casual, but as I grew into my style it evolved into a blend of edgy casual with a hint of girly flare! I think I grew into this style as I went to college downtown in NYC. A lot of downtown residents dress edgy, yet casual enough to be comfortable while walking in city. I guess I adopted that edgy casual style and made it my own with a hit of girly-ness!
Now, tell us a little bit about your etsy shop:
I am the owner of Lauren Rose Jewelry, an etsy shop, where I make handmade and personalized jewelry. A lot of my jewelry reflect my style, its edgy and casual and a little bit girly all at the same time. I use chain, stones, and metal to make necklaces, bracelets earrings and rings. If a customer finds something at my shop but wants to customize it with a different chain color, stone, or whatever they might imagine, I will create a one of a kind piece special for them! Prices range from 12 to 35 dollars, always free shipping in the USA, and I also always offer coupons!
What motivated you to open your etsy shop?
I was motivated to start shop because I believe in my product. I think my jewelry is fun, and unique. I want to give myself a shot at doing something creative while working for myself. I find it very satisfying to know what I have accomplished is a result of my own hard-work. I also think it creates a better experience for the shopper. I am always so excited to speak with new people from around the world and love to specialize jewelry to their wants. I think customers enjoy buying when its something special just for them, or buying a gift they were able to specialize just for a friend or family member.
What is your favorite type of jewelry to create?
My favorite type of jewelry to create is chain work jewelry. I like to create anything edgy but pretty. I also like to make jewelry that is wearable from day to night!
Where do you see your shop in 5 years?
I’m not sure where I see my shop five years from know but I know whatever stage it is at I will be having fun making all the jewelry! I hope to expand a little. Which I am starting now by getting professional photographs of my jewelry. The photographs of my current and unseen summer collection should be finished by the end of June.
