MissyKsCreations is a handmade jewelry store with each piece being completely unique. She specializes in earings, and recently dived into making rings and bracelets which are also available in her store. She likes to use a lot of different colors and textured beads and experiments with wood, hematite, glass, mother of pearl, shells, and many more. Her styles range from casual everyday jewelry to glamorous evening wear! She also has beach supplies, such as shells and sea glass available. One thing you won’t have to worry about is spending too much money! MissyKsCreations makes it a point to keep her prices affordable and postage and packing very low so you know you are getting the best prices around! Custom orders are available so if you have a particular color or style don’t hesitate to contact her!

What got you interested in crafting?

When I finished school a few years ago, at the age of 18, I had a summer free before starting on my degree and I felt like doing something creative and fun, whilst also making a little spare cash! I stumbled across a website selling beads and findings and found myself mesmerised. I ended up filling my shopping cart to the brim and spent the rest of summer absorbed in beads and designs in my bedroom!

What has been your favourite project to make and why?

I enjoy each project individually. I love wearing earrings myself and feel naked without them so making them is a favourite. There’s always a pair that I feel sad to sell as I secretly wanted to keep it!

What is the most challenging thing you have made?

I think it was a glass bead ring I made last year. The beads were so tiny and there were so many of them! I remember it took a lot of patience, a lot of lost beads and very steady hands!

What are some of your goals you hope to achieve within the next year?

Well I would definitely love to sell more items! I’ve heard that the summer months can be a bit slow so I hope things will pick up around Christmas. I also hope to be making more custom orders for people!

What inspires you to be crafty?

I enjoy looking at other people’s creations and ideas and how everyone’s imaginations run wild. That really inspires me. I also love the thought of someone out there wearing my creation, my design, my work. I don’t plan on making much money out of this, as I like to keep my prices low, I mainly do it for the love of it!

What is your best quality when it comes to your crafts?

I come from a very creative family, we all love to paint, crochet and do crafts in general. I also have a lot of patience and I’m good with my hands!

Why did you decide to go online?

I used to sell my jewellery locally but I live in quite a small community. Gibraltar is a small British colony at the southernmost tip of Spain, some call us a little bit of Britain in the sun! After a while I became limited and arranging meetings and sales in between my job and studies became stressful. I actually stopped making jewellery for a while as the hassle of selling was taking the joy out of it! After a year’s break and some major life changes, I was looking through my creations and I just thought it was such a waste to have them lying around. I wanted them to be seen! I did a bit of online research and found Etsy!

If you could have one thing to help your store what would it be?

Well hopefully this “Friday Feature” will give me the extra promotional boost I need 🙂 I’m very grateful for this opportunity!

    Just found your blog this morning & was inspired! I like that you feature other crafty ladies & am interested in your etsy shop. My husband & I are thinking about opening an esty shop this winter & it seems like you’ve got a good thing going!

    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
