Handmade Blue Cameo Ring GiveawayCLOSED

 

Getting to know Beth (ringalingbybeth)
Where are you from? and a little bit about you.
I have lived in Massachusetts all my life. I married my husband who also has lived in the same town. We actually bought the house that he grew up in, it is nice to raise our daughter where our roots began. We have 2 cats and another one has been promised to my 7yr old daughter……yes we are the crazy cat family.

I started my ring endeavor in the Fall of 2009. I always knew I wanted to do something creative. I had seen an article in a magazine years ago about vintage buttons made into rings. I thought it was the coolest idea, so I decided to start a business creating rings and hairpins for young and old with buttons, vintage materials, seaglass or anything else that strikes me. I love the idea of repurposing items. The fact that there is a story behind each item and that I am giving these vintage pieces a new life is fun and rewarding.

How did you decide on your shop name?

Hpnestly when I started to think of a name I was thinking Baubles…….or along those lines and most names that I originally came up with were taken……and like a flash of lightning the name came to me one morning, and I was enamored with it. ring-a-ling……it even sounds kind of vintage to me.

Do you have a blog, twitter, or facebook page?

You can find me at:

or email me at:
ringalingbybeth@yahoo.com

I am resisting the whole blog thing. I think it may consume me and take over my whole entire life……
What or who inspires you?
My favorite hobby is going to flea markets, which are my greatest source of inspiration. You just never know where you are going to find your next ring. It is fun to look through someone else’s stuff to see what you can make or reuse. I have received buttons from friends and family that have been some of my favorite rings……everyone always has a miscellaneous tin of buttons. Out of every 100 buttons I come across, just a

small percentage are actually what I call “ring worthy”. Occasionally I make a ring that is not my particular style, but I think someone will love it. That is what is so great, the diversity. Everyobody has different styles……petite, chunky, silver, gold……there is sure to be something for everyone!

Magazines and televison are suprisingly inspipring . Every once in awhile I will see someone on tv and think “Her outfit needs a big chunky ring…..I have just the one. I know it is cliche, but Martha Stewart is still inspiring to me all these years later…..she has such an eye for things.

What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?

I love to furnish and decorate my home inside and out. I love all things vintage, nostaligic and a little bit different. I feel the same way about my accessories. I love live music, eating dinner outside, planning parties with my daughter. We are currently in the planning stages of planning her kittens next birthday party. Bonfires on the beach, family dinners, and buying pumpkins. I am not hard to please.

can you remember the first piece you ever made?

I remember the first ring I made. I think it is kind of like making pancakes for the first time. You are having fun and are excited to make them, but the first one is not really your best. They keep getting better.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I love making my rings, it is fun to be unique and since my rings are affordable, it is something that you can buy for yourself and not feel guilty.
