Featured Artist: JazziesJunque
JazziesJunque, Your place for unique supplies
1. Tell me a bit about yourself (name, location, affiliations, personal stuff).
My name is Linda and my shops name is JazziesJunque. I live in Pueblo, Colorado, where I have lived my whole life. I am happily single with 2 cats (Jazz & Peanut) and two dogs (Coco & Myka). I am always on the lookout for those certain items that someone with an imagination will take and create a beautiful new and unique piece of art. I stay busy running my shop all day promoting and at night when I feel my most creative, I work on my handmade items. I really love what I do here at Etsy.
2. What inspires you? Where do your ideas come from?
My inspiration comes from the things around me, like from an empty roll of packaging tape that I once used to make a birds nest. Or seeing a domino and adding potpourri to make a keychain charm or pendant. I don't like throwing things away without really looking at them to see if they can be made into something else. So altered art/mixed media is my favorite forms of art.
3. What is your favourite thing in your shop and why?
My favorite item in my shop has to be my domino keychain charms, mainly because they are so unique and that is the idea of my shop, to carry and make unique and OOAK (one of a kind) items.
4. What is the best thing about your products?
Best thing about my products are their affordability. This gives everyone the chance to try their hand at art without it costing too much.
5. What is the best homemade item you have ever bought?
The best handmade product I've purchased are some game tiles made into beautiful pendants (from Tia's Treasures).
