Spotlight on Delicious HoBo

Today I turn the spotlight onto an incredibly creative jewelry artist whose work I find incredibly inspiring! It is truly one of a kind! Handmade from clay and chain each piece is a work of art worthy of being hung in a gallery.
But pictures are worth 1,000 words so no more from me, I give you:

(Don’t you just LOVE that name?!)

These are my absolute favorites! I want the sloth, he makes me smile!!

Short Bio:
I am a 25 year old who lives in a tiny apartment with my boyfriend of 9 years, Scott, and my very stinky dog, Rosie. There's no room for a studio, much less a dining room table, so every nook has become a storage compartment and every surface a workspace. Thankfully, I am completely addicted to crafting and can clay around anywhere!

What Inspired You to Start Your Business? 
Unfortunately, there wasn't an epic moment when I realized I should do this for a living. It was more like I was poor and loved new accessories, so I decided to try my hand at sculpting. Once I started wearing my pieces out, people seemed to respond positively, so I decided that I should try opening a shop.

What Inspires Your Creative Process? 
I definitely draw my inspiration from nature. I love to hike. I consider any excursion accomplished when I see an adorable animal or an awesome bird. It was only natural that my pieces would be filled with all sorts of creatures.

What is Your Favorite Thing You’ve Made and Why? 
I suppose it would have to be the “Birds and the Tree Necklace”. My boyfriend's mother always used to say we were “twitterpated” when we first started dating, and this necklace reminds me of that.  (Awww....!!)

What Advice Do You Have For Other People Who Want to Start or Grow Their Etsy Shop? It seems cliché, but I have to say it... Don't give up! There will always be times when you're stressed out or having a low week, but it's totally worth it if you love what you're doing.
