Angela has a jewelry store, and from pictures I’ve seen online, I think I’d LOVE to go shopping there!
She has been making jewelry since 2005, but has been involved in the art world since she was in 4th grade. When I asked where she finds her inspiration for her beautiful pieces Angela replied, “It seemed odd when I first heard someone say this, but if I am working with a stone, I let it direct me.” As far as favorite pieces from her store, Angela loves vintage jewelry and says; “I have a few Edwardian pieces that I drool over, but won't take home.”
Angela is one of the founders of our wonderful etsy Team, Christian Artists and Crafters. I asked her to explain what inspired her to begin this team:
“I had applied to join a different team in late summer 2008. I wasn't and still am not real sure of all the ins and outs of being on a team, but the team I was wanting to be a member of had a "verbal" altercation in it. I was so shocked by it, I truly didn't understand what was being said or why, as I was still very new to the team. Anyway... That made me a bit skiddish about being on the team. Hindsight shows that some of the decisions I made then probably were more emotional than anything else. I left the team, thinking that there had to be another Christian team on Etsy. I couldn't find one, soooo I asked a former moderator to help me get one started. She did, and we now have TeamCAC. I don't know that that is inspirational, but it is how it happened. :o)
