|Aqua Crystal Earrings|
Today we are talking with Scotti Cohn from Jewelry by Scotti. I must say, her jewelry is pretty remarkable. I simply love her stuff. Jewelry is an art that I will always leave to others, but I love to admire it and of course wear it! Let's here what she has to say.
Stitch Silly: Tell me a little about yourself.
Jewelry by Scotti: I am originally from Illinois, but I have also lived in Minnesota and North Carolina, and I now live in South Carolina. I have two grown children and five cats. When I'm not making jewelry, I write children's books and nonfiction books for older children and adults about American history. My favorite color is purple. I play piano and guitar. A few of my favorite things are: music, animals, astrology, iced Chai tea lattes, and going to the beach.
SS: How did you get started with Etsy?
JS: Once I started making jewelry, I made far more than I could wear myself or give to family and friends. I knew about Etsy, and it seemed like the perfect place to share my creations.
SS: What is your favorite part of being your own boss?
JS: My favorite part of being my own boss is being able to schedule my time however I want to. I don't have to be at a desk in some building somewhere at a certain time every morning. I can work for any amount of time on any day, and I can take time off whenever I want to.
SS: What are your 2 favorite products in your shop?

SS: What is your greatest success since joining Etsy?
JS: I can't point to one thing as my greatest success, but I am very pleased by the positive feedback I have received from customers on Etsy.
SS: What do you most want to improve?
JS: I want to improve my jewelry making techniques in all areas, and continue to learn new techniques.
SS: What is your ultimate goal for your Etsy shop?
JS: I would like my shop to get as much exposure as possible, and to experience a steady stream of customers.
SS: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
JS: It depends on who's doing the licking!
