#WildeFeature: Sara Ohmeis of OhMi Creations

Shop | Facebook | Twitter | Tumblr | Pinterest

My personal fave from the shop - I'm a sucker for lime green.

When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling?
I opened my online shop in the Summer of 2014. People always complimented my jewelry and other Creations with the suggestion that I should start selling online. My need for something more this past summer knocked it all into place for me.




What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why? It's really hard to choose only one. I really dig all of my Creations. Gemstones are amazing. I'm really torn but I will go with the Sri Lanka Moonstone and Hematite earrings. I love the black and white contrast and both gemstones have great metaphysical properties. They're worth checking out.

#WildeFeature : Kari of Find Your Way Crafts

Store





When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling?
I opened my shop in May of 2014, largely because my roommates and I are frequently struggling to make ends meet. I'd been making little pendants and figurines out of Sculpey or resin for a long time, usually for friends or gifts, it just hadn't really occurred to me to try and sell them.




What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why?
How To Train Your Dragon Toothless' Tail Fin Charm
Inspired by the How to Train Your Dragon movies, this is actually my best seller, too. It's a lot of fun to make, and the finished product is pretty cool looking, I think. I like it because I've actually never seen anything like it anywhere before--I feel like it's a really unique piece and I'm really proud that it's sold as well as it has.

#WildeFeature - Jessie of Jessie's Studio

Shop | Twitter | Facebook




I'm so excited to be kicking off this year's Wilde Features with Jessie. In addition to being sweet and supportive and generally awesome, her bags are FABULOUS! 

When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling?
Jessie’s Studio is a hand-crafted collection of unisex bags for women and men. Specializing in messenger, backpacks, shoulder bags, pouches, diaper bags and passport covers. My line started on a whim has quickly grown to be a treasured collection of thoughtful, handmade accessories.

So who am I? I started my first business when I was 20 selling my makeup services and expertise to save for college expense. I also have another shop which features fashion forward celebrity inspired attire. I've always loved the creative process and it was a natural step for me to eventually have my own shop of handmade accessories that I love.



I am inspired by colors, life, textures, and combining my love for Earthy style with modern fashion. I love to create whimsical yet everyday pieces that will inspire you. Whether it be an everyday purse a school bag, a mommy bag, a travel bag or work bag; it’s rewarding knowing my items are adding color somewhere!

Thanks to you, my amazing customers I've got a busy little shop + with help from local staff we make it happen. I am so grateful. So beyond grateful to all of you for your overwhelming support. Thank you, thank you so much. Thank you for letting me do what I love. What makes me happy...and hopefully makes you happy too.


What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why? 
ASHLEY is a messenger bag that promises to be in style in all season! This stunning bag has a smooth finish, making it comfortable to touch and convenient to use. This bag comes with the single shoulder strap and EXTRA adjustable strap. It can be used as a shoulder bag or messenger style. It's unique and multi-functional.....I love the navy canvas and simplicity of the design. It's one of my favorites!

Wilde Features 2015 Now Open!



Wilde Features are now open for 2015. I've already got the first slot filled, and considering this is the inaugural post about them being open... well, I expect slots to fill quickly. I'll be doing one feature a week, and they'll go up on Friday mornings most of the time. You can submit your shop info, social media, and there are also a few questions on the form (which I assure you is short and sweet) to give people an idea of what you're about and what you are like. 

Getting insight into the man or woman behind the shop can give your buyers yet another reason to go to you first when they're in the market for a new handmade goodie. The features are open to any shops featuring handmade items, art, jewelry - basically any shops selling stuff that you make is fair game. 

Apply here, and don't forget to share this with anyone you know who might need a little extra boost this year.
