Heavens to etsy: Lillyella

March 28th, 2009

My friends know I’m generally not a wearer of jewelry. But when Nicole of Lillyella posted a ‘one-year Etsyversary’ giveaway on her blog, I jumped at the chance to win — her work is simple and delicate, and her earrings actually make me half consider piercing my ears. Then… wouldn’t you know it, I was one of the names pulled in her draw — and I chose this lovely ring:

Nicole was a graphic designer and photographer originally, and Lillyella was something she started on the side; just a few months after opening shop, she was able to make it her full-time gig. You can read her “Quit Your Day Job” feature here.

Her jewelry and the photos she takes to feature her items are stunning. A few more examples:

Pretty Posy Earrings in Fuchsia

Wear Everywhere Hoops - Brass or Silver

Waterlily Landing Necklace

Nicole’s is a motivating story that shows me that hard work and creativity can go a long long way. She also happens to be an incredibly supportive and easy-to-chat-with lady; yet again, I have Twitter to thank for opening the door to meeting this creative new friend.

Happy etsyversary to you, Nicole, and here’s to many many more years of continued success and inspiration. I can’t wait to wear your art on my finger. Many kudos to you for doing what you love, and doing it so well.

    Nicole from Lillyella was one of my first friends on Etsy. She’s always super helpful and sweet. Then add that on top of her talent. Beautiful jewelry! I have the hoop earrings and LOVE them. They are a staple in my wardrobe. Her kindness, creativity, and perserverance make me respect and admire her. Happy anniversary Nicole!!
