Do you like pearls? Do you like ribbons? Have you ever thought that combining the two of these you can create very beautiful items? Well, Emily from DYEnamite (http://dyenamite.etsy.com/) certainly has! With her two favorite materials, she has created all kinds of jewelries and bookmarks. Let’s meet this week’s Mavelous Mom...
Estymom: Emily - DyEnamite (http://DYEnamite.etsy.com)
I live in South Carolina. I am happily married with one son. He is entering college this fall and will be living at home. So he may be graduating but I will still be doing his laundry!
The Creative Process:
I dye high quality glass pearls from a supplier in New York City. I can dye them in any shade. I often string the dyed pearls onto different colors of ribbon. I will also string them with pottery beads, ceramic beads, wooden beads, natural shells, etc. I have a line of school items where I combine the school's colors ( one for the pearls, one for the ribbon ) then add glass basketball and football beads and pendants. I also make school earrings, bracelets and bookmarks. I do custom orders for any school's colors whether it is an elementary, middle, high school or college. My bookmarks make great gifts for students. Also graduation is just around the corner!
Jewelry has always been a passion of mine. I have always loved pearls, even as a little girl. I can remember receiving my first jewelry set as a little girl and of course it was pearls! And I have always loved the look and feel of ribbon. So I guess it only makes sense that I found a way to work with them both.
My other interests are music, reading, cooking, traveling, jogging, weight bearing exercise and walking on the beach.
