I love Jewelry. OK, lets be honest, I’m addicted to jewelry!! Especially the awesome handmade kind 🙂 This weeks Handmade Love feature is Alisha Nicole, and she creates awesome and unique jewelry pieces!!
Tell us about how you got started…
About three years ago I was looking online for new accessories and couldn’t find anything that was my style or in my price range. I have always been a very creative and crafty person so I figured I’d attempt to make my own. I had no clue what I was doing but after a lot of practice I fell completely in love with the craft. It wasn’t too long after that that I started to get requests from people asking me to create unique pieces for them as well. The demand became so high that I decided to turn my little hobby into a business.
What inspires your creative process? Why do you do what you do?
I love music and the bohemian and beach styles so a lot of my pieces are inspired by that. When I’m thinking of new designs, oddly enough I start off with the colors. I believe some colors look better on certain styles so I think about that before I decide on the basic design.
I do what I do because I absolutely love seeing my ideas come to life and seeing other peoples reactions when they receive my products. It seriously makes my day! Not to mention that being able to wake up every morning and do something that I love is an amazing feeling!
