1. How long have you had your shop?
December 12,2010
2. What inspired you to make Beadingbyjean?
Inspiration came from when i was making jewelry for family and friends.they liked my jewelry and suggested that i sell it, so i gave it a go!! 
3. Who or what inspires you to create?
Originally i was inspired by my mother,we used to make jewelry together when i was in my early teens. I was going through some old jewelry that she had made and it inspired me to start up again! And now I get inspiration from everything. I can look at an ordinary object and find some way to bead it or make it into a beaded item!!
4. What has been your biggest accomplishment as a shop owner / artist?
Proving my husband wrong! unfortunately I don't get support from him and he said I wouldn't sell anything, but i proved him wrong and get to say "i told you so"!! that always feel good!! (get it girl!!)
5. What has been the hardest part about starting a business?
The hardest thing about starting a business is getting my name and link out there. Getting noticed is a lot harder than i thought it would be.
6. What would be your biggest tip to a brand new shop owner / artist on etsy?
Biggest tip- NEVER GIVE UP! No matter how slow it gets or down you feel, just hang in there. It may not happen over night, but it will. And remember to promote and leave your link wherever you can!! Also ive found that on etsy ,by joining circles and participating on teams i get a lot more traffic in my shop.
