Featured Seller: Chelserinibeani!!!

If you love unique jewelry like I do! Then you will LOVE today's featured seller! Say Hello to Chelserinibeani!
These Earrings are beyond stunning...quite the statement pieces if you ask me! Let's learn a little about this great seller!
~"Hello!! My name is Chelsea Eby. The name for my shop came from a silly nickname my mother gave me as a child pronounced (chel-sur-reeney-beani)
I am born and raised from Indiana, which isn't really the most exciting place in the world (unless you love Nascar or football) but its "homey" and I like that. Oh, and there is a little bit more than just corn fields I promise!
My parents are both creative masters and have encouraged me throughout my life. My dad used to play a game with my sister and I while at restaurants where we had to make pictures from abstract lines he drew. I loved this game, and became very good at it. I truly believe that this game helped me exercise my creative genius and push myself to see art from anything!

~"I took a jewelry class in high school which started my love for it!! I realized that stores never had the cool earrings I was picturing in my head, so i thought I would just try making it myself. It wasn't until recently however (even after having an etsy shop for quite some time) did I decide to try selling some of my things!

~"My typical process for making jewelry is as follows:
-Lay out everything I own-beads, wire etc in front of me
-stare at it for an indefinite amount of time
-stop multiple times to play with/keep my 2 year old daughter entertained
-layout different ideas, experiment with cheap wire, scribble on envelopes of bills i need to pay
-Cry out in frustration, followed by emotional eating..
-have an amazing idea while doing something else like folding clothes, cleaning the toilet etc
- Put the piece together and vainly admire it on myself in the mirror, and sometimes multiple mirrors in my house.
-Finally I spend at least a day convincing myself that I will never be successful if I keep everything I make, and promise to recreate it for myself later
~"I try my best to create something you don't typically find other places, yet keep my prices affordable!! I am inspired by nature and its natural beauty and pallet of colors!! Making jewelry can be very frustrating when you are working and trying to raise a little girl who doesn't understand that you have work to do sometimes, so I try to read as many "quit your day job" stories to keep me believing its possible. I also know how much the Lord has done in my life and that he knows the desires of my heart before I have to even speak them and that is comforting!!
I hope you get the chance to check me out! I don't have a whole lot of my things posted yet ( having a busy toddler and working part time has made it a little more difficult than i thought!) but Im hoping to be able to add more and more over the next couple weeks!!"
