Today's Featured Follower is Jacyln from the Wear it Cuter Etsy Shop!
So, tell us a little bit about yourself!
Hello, my name is Jaclyn Dias, and I'm a craft-a-holic. I am married to my husband, Joseph, and we've been married for almost 3 years! We have one cute little boy named Alexander, Xander for short, and we love him to pieces! He just turned 2 years old and he's obsessed with Mickey Mouse and Blues Clues! We live in Springfield, MO and we are LDS! I also like to dance hip-hop, sing in church choir (and in my car), watch movies, oh...and I'm a big Twilight fan!
What are some of your favorite things to do during naptime?
Naptime is rare, but when Xander does finally fall asleep I like to craft of course!
What kind of products do you have in your store?
Wear it Cuter mainly features very cutesie jewelry such as necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, cell phone charms and keychains and accessories, usually made from old or new toys, plush animals, dolls, or anything super cute I can find! These cute things I often refer to as kawaii, which is a Japanese word for cute, and many of my items are inspired by Japanese streetwear. The latest Japanese craze, and what has inspired many of my new items, is called Fairy Kei. It refers to fashion that is over-the-top cutesy, with all the bows, ruffles and frills, all in pastel rainbow colors. If you really want to know what I'm talking about, just google "fairy kei" and you'll see what I mean! ;)
What made you want to start your store?
I originally began crafting with polymer clay. I saw items on etsy that I wanted to give as gifts, but they weren't quite perfect, and when I asked a seller on etsy to make some custom items for me, she declined. BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME!!! It was actually a blessing in disguise because then I started thinking, well I bet I could make it better myself, so I did! After that, anything that I saw that I liked, I created myself, but better, and I have been crafting ever since. My items became so popular with my friends that I decided to open my own online shop!
What is a favorite item that you have made?
I don't think I could choose a favorite item I've made...I love all of my cute creations!!! But the My Little Pony necklaces have always been my best sellers!
Anything else you want to add? (New products to look for at your store, etc)
I forgot to mention that I lived in Okinawa, Japan for four years (military brat) and so I not only love Japanese streetwear, I'm a big fan of Japanese animation and Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars and My Melody! You can see some of these characters in my shop! I just recently made some Little Twin Stars necklaces that I beaded myself!
Also, I have more than one shop...I actually have four total.
