From Omaha, NE, Jenny R sells her vintage and handmade jewelry in her Etsy shop BlackMagicStudio. Read more about her here on Promo Junkies of Etsy:
How did you first get started on Etsy?
I first learned about Etsy from a girl in a silversmithing class I was taking. My boyfriend’s sister-in-law has a shop, so she taught me all the ins and outs so I could start selling my handmade jewelry. I was very excited to find out I could sell vintage too!
What is your inspiration for your shop?
The inspiration for my shop is the idea of making life just a little more beautiful.
What is your favorite item from your own shop and why?
I have two shops, and it would be very hard to pick a favorite. And truthfully, if I really could I would probably keep it for myself. I am particularly fond of this one though
How do you unwind when you’re not creating?
When I’m not creating (or doing homework), I can be found crocheting (more creating), camping, kayaking, hiking, surfing the internet, or snuggling kitties.
List 3 of your favorite Etsy shops.
How would you describe your work style?
My work style regarding Etsy is basically I do what I can when I have time. I’m also a college student, usually employed part-time, and always involved in community service.
If you could choose any one superhero power, what would it be and why?
Hmm… one superhero power… I would have to go with telekinesis. It would seriously freak people out if I could move things with my mind, plus I’m kind of lazy. I think it would make cleaning the house a LOT easier.
If you knew then what you know now, what would you do differently in opening your shop?
I wouldn’t do anything differently in opening my shop. Making mistakes and learning things slowly are valuable parts of the process.
