Etsymom Giveaway #6 - Sykin's One Stop Twilight Shop (Closed)

I met Missi, the owner of Sykin's One Stop Twilight Shop, last year right here on Etsymom. Since then we've exchanged business cards and also shared thoughts on giveaway, and cross promotions. So it is so great that I am posting this Giveaway for her. I hope you like her items as much as I do because they are truly unique!

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

My shop’s name is Sykin’s One Stop Twilight Shop. I’ve been an Etsymom since June of 2009.

How did you get started as an artist?

I’ve always been interested in crafting. I started out drawing when I was a kid and then sort of changed my craft to making jewelry. I don’t know when or how I would say I started as an artist. I started on Etsy almost 2 years ago because a friend of mine had a shop and I thought it was such a neat community. So I guess I can give some credit to her!

What sets you apart from other people making similar items?

I don’t like limiting myself to one craft so it’s not unlikely to find two or three random mediums mixed together to achieve one of my pieces. Given that my shop is so focused on one theme, I try and keep everything related to Twilight, but could easily be admired by a non Twilight fan. Also, I live in the state and visit the locations mentioned in the books several times a year so it’s easy for me to get resources that other shops may not be able to get and it will always be 100% authentic.

What’s your favorite valentine’s item in your store?

Hm. That’s a tough one! I think my favorite is one of my new items. It’s the Twilight inspired 3 Hearts Bracelet ( It has 2 clear hearts and a blood red heart on a silver chain, along with 2 blood red bicone beads, 2 topaz beads, and a silver “love” stamped charm.

Give us one tip on how you managed to create/sell/manage your store and at the same time be a busy mom?

I do everything on my kids’ schedule! I’m on maternity leave right now after having my second child in December and I can’t find the time to eat most days, but I try and work on new items every time I have 5 minutes to myself. I keep my jewelry supplies close by in a travel case so I can whip them out whenever I get a chance.
