First Friday Shop Hop featuring Beadwork by Amanda

Welcome to the November First Friday Shop Hop featuring Amanda from Beadwork by Amanda and Azure Seas!
During the monthly shop hops, you'll get a blog's eye view into the shop, get to know the artist, and get a chance to win something awesome!
 
A blog's eye view of Beadwork by Amanda and Azure Seas:


Meet the Artist:
RNEST: Tell us a little about yourself.
Amanda: I’m also a chemistry graduate student, which is likely the most improbable occupation people think of when they meet me. I’ve always been split between art and science, so I choose to do both! A lot of chemistry deals with boring clear solutions or white powders, so it’s pretty exciting that the crystals I synthesize and characterize change color based on their size.

RNEST: What's your favorite part of being an artist?
Amanda: I love having the ability to transform ideas into tangible items.

RNEST: You've been at this for a while. Any advise for someone just starting out?
Amanda: Treat your Etsy shop more like a real craft show; if you want sales, you need to have a decent amount of stock available for the shopper to choose from. Likewise, have at least several pages of items in your Etsy shop to give shoppers something to browse through. Another point- keep thinks fresh! Constantly add new items and get rid of the old stuff.

RNEST: Any coupons or promotions at your shops?
Amanda: Use code RNEST15 for 15% off your entire order in either shop!

RNEST: How about shows coming up? Where can we find you locally?
Amanda: I only have a couple of shows that are local: Mayday Underground on November 3 (TOMORROW!!) at the Rochester Main Street Armory and Second Storie on November 24 at the Visual Studies Workshop on Price St.

RNEST: So, tell us about your giveaway item.
Amanda: I'm giving away any round circuit board necklace in my shop.
