In your experience, what has been your best venue for selling your work:
We love spreading the word about Compass Bracelet by going to events, festivals and fairs. We really enjoy engaging with our customers and hearing their inspiring stories and motivations that they plan to share with their bracelet! We are still a very new company but we are growing very quickly and selling our products in boutiques that fit our company culture has proven be be very successful as well.
What is your favorite way to put yourself in the mood for creativity?:
Definitely have some spotify playlists that really get me motivated. I am usually in my studio with my door open, hopefully a nice breeze coming in and my ever supportive canine companion, Ruby. She remind me to take playtime breaks…usually a tennis ball is involved:)
What is the weirdest job you have ever had?:
Legal Technology Sales Manager. I had no legal experience, my technology skills and knowledge were less than sub-par at the time I was hired and I was rarely able to exercise any of my passions or creative skills. Looking back I realized I learned a ton and that it lead me to the realization of what I needed to be doing and ultimately got me to where I am today.
Which artist at The Handmade Market are you excited to see/meet?:
Tierra Sol Studio, because we are absolutely obsessed with succulents! Herban Roots, seems to have some amazing all natural products that I would love to try out. The Void Catalog also caught my eye and I have already decided that I will be buying at least one piece if not more to hang in my bedroom. We are so excited to be a part of this event and meet all the vendors, there is so much creativity and inspiration to appreciate.
