Meet Etsy Jewelry Artist: PamperingBeki

PamperingBeki is a "fun loving mom, wife, and jewelry designer." Her style ranges from "whimsical and fun, trendy, to classically elegant." She designs pieces that can be both dressed up or dressed down. "I always think 'Can this be worn with a tee and jeans? Can it be worn with a fabulous black dress?' And I try to have the item work with both." She's been designing jewelry for five years as a hobby - and a job. "It's a hobby that's taken on a life of it's own," she explains. "And I love every minute of it as my job." While she'd like to see more consistant sales, she doesn't expect Etsy to bring her customers. "Don't rely on Etsy to provide your buyers. You have to do your own marketing outside of Etsy to drive buyers to you. If you see a seller who is very successful, email them and ask for their tips or advice! Most are thrilled to offer what works for them." Please visit her shop:
