As you all know by now that I am obsessed with all things Twilight. Guess what I have? Another shop that sells Twilight inspired jewelry to show you! Icy Jewelry has many gorgeous pieces and also a section just for Twilight fans like me and you! These are some of my favourite pieces from her shop…
Christina is the owner of Icy Jewelry and she has graciously answered a few of my questions to get to know more about her and her work.
Please tell me about yourself.
I am currently on Maternity Leave as my second child was born on June 7th 2008. I am a mother of two- a Girl named Isis 3.5 years old and a boy Named Aristotle 9 months. When I am not on Maternity Leave, I am a Librarian working full time at time at a University Library. I love to make Jewelry, all kinds, I love to use unique beads and semi-precious stones. I love watching and reading Science Fiction and Mysteries and I absolutely love reality television, but I think it is getting out of hand now a days, my favourites are Survivor, Amazing Race, Apprentice, Big Brother.
Please tell me about your shop.
I took my shop name from my daughter Isis she was my inspiration. I have been making jewelry for over 20 years, but decided to start selling about 9 years ago, on my good friends urging. I began by only selling to brides and bridal parties, and making a few special pieces in between. I first heard about ETSY in January 2007 and I decided that I wanted to try something new. I now make and sell necklaces, earrings, bracelets, just about anything.
What inspires you?
What inspires me are my family, my children, the ocean, the trees, the sunshine, the snow, I basically guess nature and my surroundings. Lately I have been inspired by my reading. But I love bright colors. Spring and Summer are my favourite times.
Who is your favourite Twilight character?
My Favorite character is Edward of Course, but I also like Jacob, Emmet and Jasper.
Christina of Icy Jewelry has offered my readers the chance to win a Bitten Twilight Inspired Crystal Apple Necklace. It’s an Austrian Crystal Apple shaped faceted pendant that measures just over 1/2 an inch and is paired with a beautiful deep green glass leaf bead.The necklace measures 18 inches. Makes a great Twilight Series Fan gift or makes a great gift for that teacher you love!
