Manic Monday: Paige

What got you started with selling online? What inspired you to put yourself out there?
Two reasons. One, I needed a creative outlet because I hated my day job and it was making me stabby. Two, I was looking to make a little extra money, and jewelry-making was a skill I'd had in my back pocket for a while--so I busted it out!

What is your absolute favorite piece in your shop?
Hmmm... It's hard to pick just one, but probably these earrings. I've been in love since I made them:

What's the most important thing that you've learned through your experience selling and promoting yourself online?
I've learned that it's not easy. Running my own small business is awesome and I wouldn't trade it for anything, but I'm not only the owner and designer, I'm the customer service manager, I'm the shipping department, I'm the marketing guru... It takes a lot to be everything at once, but nothing good is ever easy.

What is your favorite quote?
"When all else fails, there's always delusion." -- Conan O'Brien
