This is...Vicki

Favourite sound?
The sound of the voices of my family and friends.

Favourite way to spend your time?

Favourite item in your shop of all time?

Paua Shell and Freshwater Pearl Jewelry Set

I love the colors of the Paua shell and the natural characteristics of the pearls and shell combined. Pearls are absolutely my favorite "gemstones" which is another reason I like this so much. It actually should be in my Denim and Pearls shop but because I already have it listed in LOC Design Studio I don't plan to move it. I'll be making something new with a Paua shell and pearls for Denim and Pearls!

Pastel Freshwater Pearl Necklace

Favourite shop that isn’t yours?
I have several Zibbet friends who have fabulous shops making it impossible to choose just one!
Judy: portablegraffiti and wildgoosechase

Deon: poocheze

Don't these look mouthwatering? Dog biscuits from Poocheze

Jennifer: jewelssosweet and mrssupply

Hair barrette from JewelSoSweet

All three of these ladies are professional and make customer service their top priority. They are also very creative and their products reflect that creativity!

What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learnt so far that you’d like to pass on to our readers?
Patience is a virtue! It takes time and hard work to have your products found. Promoting is a never ending part of the business. If you are not willing or able to put in the time and effort, then avoid the frustration by choosing another vocation! However, with perseverence the rewards are great--if selling your original, handcrafted items online is your heart's desire then go for it!

Nice interview Nifty Knits.

And thanks for saying my shops are some of your favorites Vicki.

I think your Denim and Pearls shop is going to famous. Soon as you have it filled email it to Martha Stewart.

Much success to everyone on Zibbet!!!
