Craft Cafe Artisan Interview - Lisa Boland Jewelry Designs

Meet Lisa Boland from Lisa Boland Jewelry Designs

♥ Please tell us about yourself:
My most important job and greatest joy is being mom to my incredible son, Benjamin.  He inspires me every day to be the best person I can be.
My love of jewelry design started over 17 years ago when a friend took me into a bead shop.  I was hooked immediately and my new hobby quickly grew into a passion for creating beautiful, unique jewelry.

♥ How long have you been in business?
I started selling my work and teaching classes about 14 years ago.  I took a few years off when my son was born and officially launched Lisa Boland Jewelry Designs almost 2 years ago.

♥ Please describe your business:
In my shop you will find everything from simple and stylish handcrafted designs perfect for everyday to sparkling accessories for your special night out. My pieces feature sterling silver wire and hand-forged components, semi-precious gemstones, and one-of-a-kind artisan beads. I also love working with Swarovski crystal beads for their unmatched sparkle and brilliant colors.

♥ Tell us what inspires you:
Color inspires me more than anything else, as well the shapes and lines found in nature.

♥ Please share with others, your best marketing techniques:
As much as I love interacting online, my most successful marketing technique is one-on-one interaction with my clients. Meeting people in person gives me the opportunity to really share my ideas and passion for jewelry more than any photograph or online post ever could.

♥ What do you love most about your business?
I love seeing my designs go from concept or sketch to the finished piece.  I always get excited when the ideas in my head become a beautiful reality.

♥ Please tell us why have chosen Craft CafĂ© as a venue for your business?
Craft Cafe's customer service is second to none.  The administrative team always goes above and beyond doing all that they can to make the site work for both sellers and buyers.  Concerns are addressed promptly and ideas and suggestions are always welcome.  And of course, the membership fee for sellers is more reasonable than any other site I've found.

♥ What advice can you give for crafters/artisans just starting out?
Before investing in a lot of materials, take your time to discover what you enjoy creating most.  Stay true to your aesthetic and design what you love.

♥ Where do you see your business in 5 years?
My dream is to have my own studio space away from my home where I can really focus on my work.  I would also love to be able to have a staff to take care of all the "business" aspects of business so I can devote the majority of my time to designing and creating.

♥ Lastly, would you like to offer our readers a special or coupon code for your Craft Cafe shop?
Please use coupon code "CCBLOG" at my Craft Cafe Shop during checkout to save 15% on your order.  Coupon expires December 31, 2012.
