Mystigail Adornments owner, Susan describes how she got started- "Back in November, my oldest daughter received some handmade beaded jewelry from her friend for her birthday. It was gorgeous, so I started talking to the friends mom. She gave me a few pointers, and it seemed easy enough, so I made a couple pieces for secret santa gifts. Then I was hooked! I started making gifts for friends, and one of them, and my husband, encouraged me to sell them. I had already had a name picked out, and it seemed perfect for a business. It's the combinations of my daughters' names: Mystik and Abigail = Mystigail.
After a few months, I decided i wanted to get into hand stamping. I was even more hooked!"
Susan says, "The most challenging thing is getting my name out there, and competing with other jewelers. There are so many crazy talented people out there."
Susan's favorite things include mexican food, the colors pink & purple, shopping at Target, and Cupcake moscato wine. Her favorite method of networking is on twitter, and making jewelry helps her to relax. She loves playing with her kids, camping & going to the lake on her boat.
Susan wants fans to know, "I love creating personalized pieces for my customers. Not only am I making a one of a kind piece for them, it gives me a chance to be me. Not mom or wife. Me. With that said, my children and husband motivate me. Showing my kids that even though you have a family, you can still be yourself and do something for you."
Mystigail Adornments can be found on the web on Facebook, Storenvy, & Twitter.
