For today’s post, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mel C., Creator/Owner of Eclectic Jewelry & More. Our interview is below:
Q: What was the motivation for starting your own jewelry line?
Mel C.: I’ve always enjoyed doing crafts. From the time I was a little girl you could find me cutting up or making something. A few months after doing a photo shoot for my friend’s jewelry lines decided to try it for myself.
Q: How long have you been designing jewelry?
Mel C.: I’ve been designing jewelry since May of this year.
Q: How do you come up with your designs?
Mel C.: I love mixing colors & patterns. I just make what looks good to me. I like putting things together that don’t normally go together. The customer can also choose what colors they’d like in their jewelry.
Q: What types of pieces do you make?
Mel C.: I make beaded bracelets, necklaces, & earrings (pierced & clip-ons) for men, women, & children. I’m working on cufflinks & rings. I also crochet hats, scarves, blankets, mittens (baby), & booties (baby), as well as photography.
Q: From what I understand you make custom pieces as well, what does a customer have to do to order a custom piece?
Mel C.: To purchase a custom piece the customer can send me an email detailing what items they would like–length, color, size, charms, etcetera and I would make layouts of what their piece could look like.
Q: If you could design a piece of jewelry for a Disney character, which character and why?
Mel C.: I have two–Stitch & Nemo. I pick Stitch because he’s different like me. I pick Nemo because he’s determined, like me.
