Interview With A Star - Anastasia at BlueberryCream

When it comes to the jewelry I like natural materials, simple shapes and a hidden meaning in every piece. When I saw this shop on Etsy I almost instantly fell in love with it’s unique jewelry designs! Beautiful silver, copper & brass earrings, bracelets & necklaces – I love every single item!

So I’d like to introduce Anastasia to you today, a wonderful jewelry maker & Etsy seller from the BlueberryCream shop.

Q: Please tell us a little bit about yourself

A: My name is Anastasia. I was born in Moscow, Russia. Currently I live in Connecticut with my husband and my daughter.


Q: How long have you been creating? How did your journey in art and creativity begin?
A:
A few years ago I had trouble at work. About the same time a friend took me to a local New Age store, where I found a wide variety of amulets and talismans. Normally I wouldn’t even notice something like that, but at that time I bought one of them. Later I went to Michaels and found tons of stone beads, findings etc. I realized that I can make things similar to what I saw at that store. So I bought a few things and made lucky charms for myself and some friends. One thing led to another, and here I am. It became my creative outlet, an escape from work, if you will.

Q: How would you describe your style? Have any other artists etc influenced your style?
A:
Not sure. I am constantly evolving, so different artists/things influence me at different times.Q: What items do you carry in your shop?
A:
I carry sterling silver, (solid) copper and some brass jewelry. I also use natural gemstones to complement my pieces.Q: What items in your shop do you most enjoy making and why?

A: I like making OOAK pieces. But they require inspiration.

Q: Do you have a favorite item you have made?
A:
This one wasn't bad:
Q: Do you take custom orders?
A:
Yes, but within reason. There are things that maybe too complicated or time consuming that I wouldn’t do.

Q: Where would you like to go with your business?
A:
Nowhere, really. I am just enjoying the process of creating things.


Q: Why will people love your items?
A:
I have absolutely no idea:)

Thank you so much, Anastasia, for being here with us today!
