Wednesday Wellspring: Lauren's Lovelies

With a wave of eco-friendly creativity, Lauren’s Lovelies shot forth from the well this week. Lauren, the artist behind these amazing upcycled creations, opened her Etsy shop after encouragement from Linda of Just Ice Jewelry. Lauren had recently lost her job, so it was the perfect time to try something new.

Working with alcohol inks and rubber stamps, Lauren creates the most amazing one-of-a-kind necklaces and key chains out of dominos – that’s right, you heard me: dominos! Lauren is also a graphic designer and helps people brand their businesses. She offers a business package, which includes two avatars, an Etsy banner, a business card design, and 1000 high-gloss, full color, and double-sided business cards. This package is a great way to start or revitalize your business.

Another way Lauren advises other sellers to promote themselves is by doing giveaways. You can make a lot of contacts – friends and buyers – through a giveaway. (Hey, I’ll let you in on a secret: We’ll be hosting the Mother of all giveaways right here starting October 26th, but you didn’t hear it from me!)

Make sure you check out Lauren’s shop. She’s sweetening the deal with a free clippie with every necklace purchase from now until Christmas – can you say “two presents for the price of one!” You can also find Lauren on twitter.
