Today I want to introduce to you another very talented person, owner of a beautiful Jewelry Shop called Bijouxfan. Her name is Carmen, an Italian girl from the beautiful Naples. She moved to the United States one year ago to follow her husband. They are both engineers, but she's not working right now and she's more than happy about that! She's able to dedicate herself more to her family, her son and the passion she has of designing and making jewels.
::: INTERVIEW! :::
1. When did you start making jewels?
I started about 4 years ago, just for fun and curiosity, but in few months this 'game' has become a great passion, a real 'need' for my soul and my mind. It's not only a way to relax myself, but a desire to express my ideas, my thoughts about life. A direct way to reach people's heart!
2. What is your inspiration?
I'm very attracted and inspired by color contrasts, that I can observe in nature, or in a painting, or in everything I see. Unusual shapes, natural or man-made, are another inspiration source for creation. And, obviously, stones. A single, beautiful, colorful stone can give me the main idea for a jewelry piece.
3.What else do you like to do for fun?
I love music, I love singing. Since I was 3 years old, I sing, and sing, and sing all the time! There has been a moment in my life in which I dreamed about singing in a Musical, or in a big gospel choir. I took part of a little gospel choir several years ago, and it was a beautiful experience!
4. Tell me one of your dreams...
One of my dreams? To be able to trasform my passion of creating jewelry in a real job, with a true 'workshop' entirely dedicated to my tools!
Dear Carmen, thank you so much for sharing something about you on my blog! I'm going to share some of the beautiful pieces of art you make and wish you the best!!! ♥
