Interview & Giveaway with Musette Made

Shannon's jewelry is perfect for the autumn season so be sure to make a trip to her online shop Musette Made! Keep reading to learn more about Shannon and what she does!


1. Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Shannon Conlin and I live in Charlotte NC with my boyfriend Joe and our cat Bosco. I work part time in a local art gallery and spend the rest of my time working on my jewelry business and hanging out with friends and family.

2. What projects are you currently working on?
Currently I am stocking my shop with new things for the upcoming holidays - which is a huge project considering I usually make one or two of a kind items! But I love fall and winter so making things to fit the season is fun!

3. What's the best advice you've ever been given?
My dad always taught me to keep my eye on the ball. At the time he was teaching me to play tennins - but I see it as a message to have clear goals for my business and keep them in mind as I work. It makes it easier to stay on track and (hopefully) propel myself forward! He also taught me to keep things in perspective, which I think is really important -especially if you are having a bad day!

4. Tell us about some of your favorite handmade pieces (not created by you)
My great grandmother was a quilter and made wonderful functional pieces out of whatever old worn out clothes she had. Also, my boyfriend makes the funniest handmade cards using pictures from magazines and his own witty sense of humor. All our friends expect a "Joe card" for birthdays or other celebrations. We have some old friends who have stacks of them!

5. Where else can we find your work?
You can see my work at Beet Functional Art Gallery and Swooz Salon in Charlotte, NC.

Shannon will be giving one of our lucky readers a Moroccan Red Necklace valued at $24. It features copper filigree with a red vintage cabochon and tiny coral beads for movement and fun! The necklace comes on a copper chain that measures 18 inches.

To enter:
Either become a fan of Musette Made on Facebook or go to musettemade.etsy.com and post a comment below about your favorite item. If you do both you will get 2 entries.

The giveaway is open to everyone. It ends Oct 4th 11:59PST.

I love the vintage vines locket necklace. I alos love many of the earrings like the vintage lace earrings - lucite and copper but I'm a bit afraid of the copper wire in my ear since I tend to react allergic... :(
