Centralizing

Hello world!what’s going on?

Here everything is changing and I have some news for you:

First of all, I have decided to centralize my blog on http://crearescreer.blogspot.com that was the first I started and originally I wrote in spanish (my mother tongue). But after analyzing and taking in count all the time I pass editing pictures and writing in different platforms (shops included) I thought making one post in spanish, english and french in only one blog would be more productive.

So, having said that I invite you to follow all the news and abouts over there. Last week I participated on Etsy Craft Night in Paris and there are lots of things to share (you can also have an update and follow me on Facebook http://facebook.com/crearescreer and I also suggesting you lots of things and people to follow on Twitter http://twitter.com/anasousa_etsy

On my blogger blog you have also the option to suscribe for posts and receive them directly on you e-mail….

So, thanks for updating the info and see you around!

Mariona—- the succesful XL knitted bag

The story starts one day when Mariona a very nice spanish girl writes me telling she’s in love with my ‘sac décontracté’ but she wanted a bigger one…and the most surprising is she discovered my through Artesanum a site I discovered when I began to see internet as a possibility because almost all the sites were in english and this platform is in spanish (my mother tongue), so I felt I has to be in.

This month, as well, they have given me the opportunity to be on front-page and is being very good so far.

So, the client just told me she wanted the bag in prune and big… the rest was all my decision. Very challenging and fun!

And seeing its evolution and the results I decided to start with a new era on my shops… bringing lists MADE TO ORDER and completely customizable…

Apparently this idea has pleased a lot of people, because Etsy choose this bag for one of its Etsy Finds, a mailing that reach a vast number of people and permits them to discover “new” creations and artists… for sure a good option to be and expand the universe of fans and clients…  So, you can read the article on The Storque (Etsy’s blog) and choose your Mariona bag on my shop.

I feel happy from the start to the end!

Have a great Xmas and see you soon!

Challenging collaboration

In october I received an e-mail from Mimo, a girl I met in the Etsy gathering back in April. She asked me if I wanted to collaborate with her in a photo session for an academic work she had to make, and she needed a hat shaped as a pine cone.

She was going to recreate a scene from one of Elsa Beskow’s illustrations.

So, first I was surprised that she had kept my card and trust me to make it… and immediately after that I felt panic (yes!) because I never hade made a hat with this shape… but instead of reacting not taking the risk I assumed that maybe was something I needed to prove myself… making the hat in one month, searching the materials, giving a product having just a brochure of information and pleasing this person who had a need.

So the information I received were these pictures with these lovely people on the woods (that I loved from the very first moment)…

I looked for the material and I sent it to Mimo to have ALWAYS her OK (this point was very important to gain confidence) then, I made the prototype (mini) and again I sent it by e-mail to see if I was right or wrong. It was easy because we understood each other very well and everything was clear.

Then I arrived on time to give her the hat (one day in advance indeed)… and the results was this lovely hat (that is for sale if somebody is interested : euros 70)

Enjoy the results and please click on the picture to see it on detail. Characters were made in scale (as in the illustrations) so if you don’t click you risk of not perceiving the details.

Interviewing Muriel Clemenceau of MuJoyas

Today I start again with the series of interviews I was running… summer is gone, and I have more time to dedicate to my blog.

This year interviews are going to be sligthly different… in a shorter format and I challenged the designers to send me a picture of only one of their creations, one of themselves, one of their studios and one of a place they have loved.

So, I’m going to introduce you Muriel Clemenceau, of Mujoyas a (very young!) argentine designer. I met her in the Etsy in Spanish Team and I admire a lot her work specially this lovely pendant I die for.

Enjoy the interview! (translated by  me)

Where are you from and where do you live?

I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

What do you create and whit what kind of materials?

I design and make jewelry in 925 sterling silver, I also include in some of them another materials as stones and fabrics but always focusing them on silver.

I love to create pieces that are not only to look at them, also to interact, play and get involved with. My idea is to offer something else than a “beautiful” piece. I currently have two lines that respond to this idea: sliders , where different characters engraved on silver that can “move” over the piece and recreational jewels: they are kind of small games that invite you to play with.

What is your favorite product on your store and why?

Right now my favorite product is the drawer ring, I like the idea of a minimal volume, so simple but yet you’re surprised to discover that there is a “drawer” and that even fits on your finger.

What is your favorite media communication to advertise your products and why?

The first thing I created was a blog, but I also have a Flickr and Twitter account, in addition to the store.I think my blog is a good catalog of my work, I always suggest to people who don’t know my creations to see it there so they have a general idea of what I make. For my shop I use more Flickr and Twitter.
