San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair

Interview with Stella of Made By Stella Jewelry

November 12th, 2008

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.

I took a jewelry class back in 2006 with my best friend and it’s been a favorite past time of mine ever since. After receiving encouragement from friends and family, I decided to turn my hobby into something more and opened up my Etsy shop a little less than a year ago. I love making simple, classic, yet versatile jewelry that can be worn for any occasion. I search for unique stones and quality components to create beautiful designs. Although I have a full time job, making jewelry is what I love to do and I spend countless hours working on orders and creating new designs!

What are your favorite crafts and how did you first get involved with crafting?

Jewelry is my favorite craft, but I’ve always had a creative side in me. I’ve picked up random hobbies in the past like origami, scrapbooking, and even creating cute animals out of clay, but jewelry making is what has captured all my interest!

What do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them?

Coming up with ideas is great, but you can’t see your great “big idea” until you execute it. Executing the “big idea” is so rewarding b/c you can finally see all your thoughts and ideas come to life.

Are you super organized or messy?What does your workspace look like?

I used to be a bit messy, but when my supplies grew and got out of hand, I bought organizers and drawers, and for the most part, I’m pretty organized now. I have to be or else it makes my work really difficult! My workspace is my dining table- half of it, my husband I use so that we can actually eat on it. The other half is my workspace.

Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

After the San Francisco Bazaar, I’m looking forward to sitting down and creating more and more and a possible website is on the way!
