Old Soul in a Modern World Giveaway

Vintage ambiance gives such a nice quality to modern pieces, and I personally love incorporating such things in my wardrobe. Naturally, when I found Vey Court Cottage I was smitten with all the eclectic jewelry that made me dream of traveling to a time's past and keeping a souvenir for my modern crazy world! I was even more excited to meet Paula and discuss her shop. She is blessing one lucky Embellished reader with the chance to adorn their own jewelry collection with something rare and handmade and I can't wait to find out who!


1. What made you start crafting as a business?
I have always done crafts and love making things. Its only been in the past year that I have had the time to start making jewelry and selling. I guess it would also be working from home that I love.

2. What are the struggles and rewards you have had so far?
I struggled with photography the most, I had to find the right way to photograph so I could still have a vintage feel. The reward is the feeling of accomplishment when I make a sale and getting emails saying how much a person loves the item.


3. What is your favorite thing about VeyCourtCottage?
Its my ship and I can steer it where ever I want to!

4. If you could have a super power what would it be?
I would want the power to heal.


5. Any extra tidbits?
In my head I've designed hundreds of things I will eventually make, I feel like I have been waiting to do this my whole life. I have boxes of treasures waiting to become a charm necklace or maybe just be dusted off and passed on to someone new to enjoy. Either way I am enjoying the process and learn something new every day!


So here is your chance to win these special earrings above picked out just for you! You have 4 opportunities to enter, but make sure you post a comment below for EACH entry or it won't count when the random number is drawn!
