What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?
My shop name is L'Accent Nou, it means New Accent in Catalan language - native language of Majorcan people, Balearic Islands, Spain where I live.
I've been Etsymom for about 3-4 weeks. And I have to say that I not only found a place where I can sell my work, I opened a window to a big bright world of creative people, and in this world I was so happy to find EtsyMoms team - warm and familiar relationship between people.
Tell us more about your store items and why you love making them?
In my store you can find one of a kind jewelry made mostly from cold porcelain clay (a kind of airdry polymer clay, rather sturdy material). I'm in constant search and experiment with unusual materials. I combine clay with copper wire, I like to include natural materials like seeds, branches, leaves, sand...Often my inspiration comes from the Nature.
I love plastic arts in general. And clay was my passion from very young age.
I remember when I was little girl I asked my parents to bring clay home, I had like an impulse to do something with clay....and now I think this impulse just came out.
Making pieces from clay is what I enjoy most. It is the moment to play and have fun. Creative moments are my favorite!
During long time I was asking myself - For what serves the art?
And than I understood that I don't need to look for explication, I need just do what my heart says. And than I saw that people began to enjoy just looking at my work, and it gives me a great satisfaction. I understood that art serves to make people smile, to feel better, to surprise and to discover different ways to be.
I try to enjoy everything I do. If I'm not in a good mood I leave the work, and continue in a better moment, I try to transmit positive energy to everything I do.
I'm perfectionist. Always there is a way to improve!
And I'm never bored. I don't have enough time to do everything I would.
Very important for me is to comunicate with people and with my customers and understand what they really want. Happy client is the best gratification for me.
I love Nature, I love to walk and observe trees, herbs, animals, stones...I try to use ecological materials and to be eco-friendly with my actions in general.
How much Easter chocolate/candy bunny or eggs will you let your kid(s) eat?
