Find Your Muse Giveaway

The Embellished Life has taken quite a break lately with giveaways since I have been traveling around Europe and relocating my life back to the States. Now that things have settled down, and I am back in my hometown of Charlotte, I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a little Hometown Pride coming up! And just in time with school starting right around the corner! or maybe Fall is your favorite like me and you need that perfect accessory to kick it off right?

Introducing Shannon the creative genius behind Musette, an adorably vintage inspired jewelry line that has me craving too many things to count!

1. So Shannon, what got you started in jewelry?
I got started making jewelry when I happened across a bead store and wandered in. I was captivated by all the little colorful beads and tools and the owner was super nice. She taught me a few basics and that was that! I have been addicted ever since and that was over 12 years ago!

2. What pushed you to turn your hobby into a business?
I have always been an artist - primarily a painter - and always dreamed of being able to support myself doing something creative. When people started buying the jewelry I was making I realized that it could actually happen if I put in the time and effort. I have been selling for many years in many different ways but once I found Etsy that was it! My business has moved to a new level and I started to be able to support myself with it. I recently started to focus on it full time and am looking forward to it growing even more!

3. What inspires you?
I am so inspired by other artists in all mediums - witnessing other creative people working on their own vision is really inspiring to me. I also get really excited about my supplies! Buying new beads and supplies, finding unique things to work with - always inspires me!

4. If you could have a super power what would it be?
I think it would be really cool to be able to teleport myself to wherever I wanted to go! :)
