Wow This is my tenth Folksy seller interview! I hope you have found some new favourite sellers and enjoyed reading about the people behind the folksy shops, i know i have!
Name Kristen Scott
Folksy Shop: K Scott Crafts
How Long have you been on Folksy?
Just a few months, I'm fairly new to it
Describe what you create
make a variety of things using polymer clay- cake toppers, figurines and various pieces of jewellery, including tiny animals, food, and millefiori beads. I also make custom pieces to order. :)
How did you get into your craft?
I used to model with polymer clay as a teenager but hadn't used it in ages, then one of my friends was looking for a specific wedding cake topper and I decided to have a go at making it for her, and from then on I got back into polymer clay modelling as a hobby, then I started making beads with it and got into jewellery making from there.:)
What inspires you?
I love animals as you can probably guess as I've got a lot of animal-related things in my shop! :D .
Which item for sale in your Folksy shop is your favourite?
From my jewellery range, I'm rather pleased with my sheep bracelet, which has 4 little white sheep and one little black sheep charms on it.
What makes you unique?
I'll have a go at most commissions so my jewellery will be as unique as you are :)
If you won the Lottery how would you spend your millions?
I'd buy a nice house for myself and my husband, (complete with a nice big studio for myself, natch!) and make sure our families and friends were sorted, do a bit of travelling and donate some to charity too.
Do you have a favourite shop which you buy from on Folksy?
Ooh, there are loads of lovely shops on Folksy! I love Bits N Bobs fancy soaps, Printed On Ribbon's ribbons and Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes jewellery
