Another Handmade With Love Etsy Seller!

 

Getting to know Kristin (seababe)

Where are you from? and a little bit about you

I am originally from Orange County, California. I’ve lived on the North Shore of Oahu for almost 4 years now! Wow, time fly’s! Living here in Hawaii is a pretty surreal thing. I just love it.

How did you decide on your shop name?

Our shop name was decided upon in a brainstorming session between David and I. We wanted something relating to the ocean, so we thought to go with “sea”. Then, David added the Babe part, making the name “Sea Babe.” It stuck well.

What items in your shop do you most enjoy making and why?

I love making necklaces. They take a bit more time, but I actually like making the small links I have in many of my pieces. It can be methodical and therapeutic at the same time.

What advice would you give to new artist?

I would tell a new artist that once they decide to make a living by selling their pieces, they can expect long hours and a lot of hard work to get the ball rolling. After you put in your time, it will all be worth it.

Can you remember the first piece you ever made?

I don’t actually remember the first piece; there have been so many since them. I’ve made a lot of one of a kinds too. The first piece was sure to have been made using shells though. That is where Sea Babe began. Collecting shells and making them into jewelry started off our entrepreneurship.

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

I write a section on a blog David runs. The name is “Six Degrees of Etsy Bacon!” It is a part silly, part serious business blog and it’s a lot of fun. My section is called “Sea Babe Sells” and I give tips and tricks for success at Country Markets and Craft Fairs. Here is the link:
