Meet Etsy Jewelry Artists: prolifiquejewelry

There are actually two artists behind the chic Etsy shop prolifiquejewelry - one in Florida and one in Arizona. Both have similar styles, but also something "special that each...brings to the designing table." They have their own jewelry lines, but "wanted to explore other ideas (that)didn't fit into either one of our own lines so we created this line," they explain of their 8 year collaboration. "We want education as well as the love of beautiful objects to draw people to our jewelry. We want our jewelry to have meaning." They appreciate nature, Buddhist philosophies, and karma, which is beautifully showcased in their designs. They are stay at home moms and find inspiration in their children as well. "Seeing life through their eyes has been a humble and inspiring experience for us both." Their craft is not only their passion, but their job as well. This is the best job (next to being mom's) that we ever want to do for the rest of our lives!" While they'd like steady sales like the rest of us, "education and understanding (are) just as important to them. They want to encourage fellow artists to follow their dreams. "Life may not always take you on the path that you think you should be going, but life really is a beautiful journey that we are looking forward to exploring." Please check out their shop: http://prolifiquejewelry.etsy.com/
