Interviewing Moira Neilson of Paleolochic

Paleolochic-Moira Neilson

We share a lot of things with Moira, she is part of the Etsy in Spanish Team and also of the European Street Team and once I saw this “Choker for the Godess” I felt in love with the African style of a lot of her creations and I proposed her to make this interview.

Apart of being a Jewelry designer Moira also makes Housewares as Aprons (very sexy, by the way) and Table cozies…

Check out her Website, I specially loved the Philosophy section… 

Let’s know her a little bit more…

Hello! My name is Moira Neilson and I was born in Canada almost 34 years ago, I grew up and went to school in Argentina; my father is English and my Mum Argentinean.  The past century, in the year 1997 I moved to London and

After five years I’ve decided it was time to put the umbrella away and moved to sunny Barcelona where I am planning to stay until destiny said so…

 

What kind of craft do you make?

I like everything related to crafts but to keep myself mentally healthy I

Aprons by Paleolochicfocus most of my effort designing fashion accessories and different decoration goodies in fabric.  

When did you start?

Since I was a little girl I’ve always liked to create with my hands and I was always doing some kind of workshop. When I grew up I studied Graphic Design in Argentina then in London I did a Foundation in Art & Design and I’ve continued doing different workshops in pottery, weaving,etc., all very easy things to do in a flat (ha-ha-ha!!)

What are you inspired by?

The truth is that I’ve get inspired by almost everything, I am very thankful to be able to appreciate beauty in the small things, the everyday life; though I must say my best friend its nature.

What do you enjoy the most?

I really enjoy the freedom, being able to follow my intuition and initiative, I loved to figure out how to develop a project that seems to be very simple but it’s not, it’s like a puzzle, piece by piece…

 What are your future expectations?

I would really love to live of my work and to have a “real shop” with handmade products, not only mines but from fellow artisans from Etsy, Dawanda, etc. That is why I am dedicating a lot of time to the non-creative area of  everything related to marketing, finance, legal aspects, etc. basically the non fun part but essential aspect to carry on a business , Yin and Yang, like life!

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
