Featured Seller: Laila from Lilla Stjarna

If you're looking for classy, colorful jewelry, then check out the shop Lilla Stjarna by Laila.

When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?
I am a recent college graduate, and I started first making jewelry when I was about thirteen or fourteen. Before that, I liked to collect things, but when I realized just what I could make using some beads, wire, and my trusty pair of bright pink pliers, I went crazy.

How did you learn about Etsy?
I learned about it as I learn about a lot of things in life: from my mom. She had found a beautiful handmade necklace that she was obsessing over, and I learned about the site through her obsession to share it with everyone. And now, of course, I share that obsession.

Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
I've always been obsessed with stars and the vastness of the night sky and became even more so after I learned that my last name is Arabic for a constellation in the sky. I've always loved being outside and have found that inspiration comes to me most when I'm happy and surrounded by the great outdoors. Not to mention, I'm a bit of a magpie when it comes to selecting materials and I will usually go for the bits of bead that are most unusual or sparkly.
