Feature Friday #6- Little White Chapel

This week I'm featuring Paige from Little White Chapel on Etsy.  She makes absolutely gorgeous wedding jewelry with a charming vintage feel.  

How long have you been doing your craft?
I learned how to make jewelry when I was 12, but I've had my shop open for a little over a year

How and why did you start designing?
A couple of reasons. One, I wasn't happy with my degree or day job, and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Two, I love weddings. Always have, always will. I got married in 2009 and planning my day just made it "worse." I wanted to keep the fun going, so I opened the shop.

What inspires you to create?
As dorky as it sounds, I get REALLY excited when I shop for beads. A lot of special occasion supplies are pretty all by themselves, so they get the wheels turning right away.

How would you describe your style?
Vintage-inspired beauty without a lot of fuss.

Why did you decide to delve into the wedding business?
Like I said above, I'm a wedding junkie.

Do you have any new items you plan on adding to your shop?
A larger selection of hair combs and bobby pins are coming up within the month, and I just ordered vintage rhinestones to turn into earrings.

Which items are your favorite to make and why?
Earrings! Strangely, I don't wear a lot of jewelry everyday, but I always wear earrings. I like to make them because I like to wear them.

Do you have a facebook, twitter, or blog?

I'm on Twitter:
A blog for my shop:
And a fashion/shopping blog:

Do you sell anywhere besides Etsy?
Not online, but I do various craft shows in the Chicago area.

If you're in the area, try to check her out in person, or you can always visit her Etsy shop,
