Meet DancingHannah

Who are you?
Shelbi, Founder/Owner of Dancing Hannah Designs.

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link?

What tag categories do you specialize in?
Mainly jewelry, earrings, bracelets, brooches, and necklaces.
I am designing jewelry for men, women and children/teens, but eventually I will be moving into print photography, and addding that to my jewelry, as well as stationary, prints, cards and other fine gifts.

Do you create for children or adults, women or men?

What do you like about Etsy?
I love the connections I have made with other artists and crafters...I love that everyone is so helpful and takes the time to answer each others questions and lift each other up.

What do you like about creating?
Just that feeling it gives you, kind of like a 'mini vacation'....where you get lost in a blissful place when things just come together. it is very meditative to me.

What do you love about your business?
My business is always there. It is the one thing that no one can take away. It is also an extension of a deeper layer of who I am, because it gives me the chance to create and a place to put those creations out there for all to see.

What is your favorite product right now?
anything that involves nature. This has been the year of the 'bird' for me. I have become deeply in love with birds, and nests, and am planning a collection around this theme.

What makes you unique at Etsy?
Every shop at Etsy is unique, because each one of us has contributed something exclusively made by hand.... My hands can never make anything other than my own creation...and that is what makes it unique. A bracelet can be never be just a bracelet, it will always have it's own little universe going on within it.

What makes you unique as a woman?
I guess I would have to say...hmmm...honestly? my sense of direction. I could find my way out of a corn field and tell you what direction we were headed! and, my love of fishing. don't know too many woman who love to do that .

What do you love about Kids?
their honesty, innocence and pure radiance. they just glow...I love to capture that in my photography.

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
