October #ThankYouThursday Giveaway
Featuring Kristyn Renee Jewelry
There is nothing better than buying an item that is labeled as “limited edition” or one-of-a-kind. Personally, I jump (literally) at the chance to collect original, high quality items because shopping for these articles boost my mood and make me feel better…but only temporarily! It used to be a challenge for us “uniqueness seekers” to find distinctive, eclectic pieces of jewelry. Imagine going to craft shows, art fairs and expos with thousands of artisans trying to sell their work. The loud noise. The crowds. The plethora of products to choose. *Groans* Just thinking about makes me feel overwhelmed.
There is an alternative though! Ever since the Internet introduced the world to the beauty of online shopping, most of us prefer to shop online in the comfort of our home instead of venturing out to these shows and fairs.
Esty – an e-commerce website for handmade crafts – is a product of our evolving shopping habits. The Etsy site is providing an expansive marketplace for people to express their creativity through the buying and selling one-of-a-kind crafts. Sellers can reach millions of customers around the world by showcasing their items online via their “Etsy shop.” One of my absolute favorite “shops” to go to for remarkable jewelry is called Kristy Renee Jewelry owned by Kristyn Renee.
Every designer has a personal story that explains their emergence in to the fashion world. When I sat down to talk with Kristyn last month, I quickly found out that her story revolved around her quirky fascination with geology.
Kristyn has always found rocks interesting…even at a young age. Collecting multihued stones and iridescent geodes became one, of the many, hobbies she has delved into over the years. Her passion for geology runs so deep that she has even received rocks as Christmas presents! After graduating from college three years ago, she decided to turn her hobby into a successful business venture. Thus, Kristyn Renee Jewelry was born when she started designing custom, HANDMADE pieces made out of the precious and semi-precious stones she collected.
The establishment of her brand has caused her to “completely fallen in love with” the jewelry making process. “[She] puts so much love into every…” necklace, ring, and bracelet AND BELIEVE ME, IT SHOWS! Her work is absolutely breathtaking. It is probably because she hunts for her own materials so that she can produce the perfect accessory.
When she isn’t making jewelry, Kristyn likes to read, play volleyball and spend quality time with family, friends, and her new husband.
I don’t say this about any designer but I would wear anything she produces. Point blank. Kristyn is a talented, driven and an innovative individual. I am excited to partner with her on this month’s giveaway!
Without further ado, this October #thankyouthursday Sweepstakes is about celebrating local businesses/Etsy shop owners who are truly passionate about their craft!
