So let's get to know our NEW giveaway seller : ABirdinTheHandArt
Name of Shop – A Bird In The Hand Art
Category of items you sale – Mostly jewelry, and some home décor.
1. How long have you had your shop?
2. What inspired you to make ABirdinthehandart?
I’ve always loved creating things and I really enjoy sharing them with others. I chose the name “Bird in the Hand” because I love to paint birds. Since I also make jewelry, I decided to create different collections based on different birds. When you buy an item, you get to hold a “bird” in your hand.
3. Who or what inspires you to create?
I don’t know, something inside. My mom is very artsy; she actually spent some time as a political cartoonist. That probably had a big impact. I also studied biology, specifically birds, for some time in school and I’ve learned to love the beauty and wonder in the world around me.
4. What has been your biggest accomplishment as a shop owner / artist?
Making a sale. Seriously, since I’m just starting out, every sale I make feels like the biggest accomplishment yet. I’ve done a few shows this year as well, but they haven’t had quite the same impact that the online sales have. I think this is because I used to do craft shows back in high school so I was more used to this type of interaction (although the pieces I made back then were NOT good ☺)
5. What has been the hardest part about starting a business?
Patience. I want to immediately make everything I have imagined and get it all listed perfectly and then sell out in a week. That will never happen. It takes time to grow and develop. I think I also need to be patient with myself; I’m new to this and I need to give myself time to develop as an artist and a small business owner.
6. What would be your biggest tip to a brand new shop owner / artist on etsy?
See above. No just kidding. I think it would be to find something that you love making. If you are just starting, you may just be trying to find anything that sells. I guess I would say try to make something you love rather than worrying too much about whether others will love it as well.
7. Where can we find ABirdinthehandart?
