Hey! Today I will be featuring the Etsy shop Sophie Thomson Designs and I will also be interviewing the owner behind the shop, Sophie.
Sophie Thomson Designs is an Etsy shop run from the UK that sells handmade polymer clay jewelry. The store sells necklaces, earrings, brooches, bracelets, and hair accessories. The products sold there are very pretty and ornate. You would where this jewelry at dressy events. I love it! Here are some products from the store:
I had the opportunity of talking with Sophie from Sophie Thomson Designs.
1. When and why did you start making jewelry?
I've been making jewelry as long as I can remember, it's just something that I've always liked to do. When I was younger I would make jewelry out of glass beads and wire, or thread. I also used to play with Fimo and used it to make little figures and toys, but it's only recently that I've actually used polymer clay to make jewelry.
2. When did you how long has your Etsy shop been open?
My Etsy shop has only been open for about a month, so I'm still very new. I signed up to Etsy in February but only actually listed some items in March. I've had some interest so far, which is very good, I think.
3. What's your inspiration?
I honestly don't know what my inspiration is! I just like making pretty things. I guess I do make traditionally very feminine things, but I can't think of a single source of inspiration :)
4. Which celeb would you most like to see wearing your jewelry?
I would love it if any celebrity wore my jewelry! I guess my jewelry might appeal to Lady Gaga a few years ago, but I'd love it if someone like Helena Bonham Carter wore one of my necklaces.
5. What's your favorite store?
(I guess this is for Etsy shops?) I recently found a store that sells almost exclusively tiny knitted owls. I just loved it. I also found one where a guy made made-to-measure vintage style gowns, sometimes out of vintage fabric. They were so beautifully made, I'd have bought one immediately if funds hadn't been an issue!
6. Who is your style icon?
I don't really know if I have a style icon, but I do like the sort of clothes that people like Keira Knightly and Carey Mulligan wear. Just simple and elegant - although I don't actually dress like that!
Thanks again for this! It was a lot of fun :)
