Fabulous Giveaway: Charmed Memory Collage

I am pleased to feature a very special friend who
owns two fabulous shops on Etsy. Her name is
Josie and she is the lovely Etsy shopkeeper to 
*
Here is a glimp into Josie's studio space where she
creates her beautiful jewelry.
Interview
*
When did you start creating or felt inspired to do so?
"I have always been creative in some way or
another, I can't sew or draw to save my life so
have always found other ways to be creative."
How do you start your designs or what sparks
your artistic ideas?
"I collect anything and everything I think is old
and interesting so making jewelry out of old
bits and pieces was just a natural progression.
When I started editing images for my charms
I found I really enjoyed playing around with
graphics as well so I decided to create
collage sheets and open my 2nd Etsy shop."
What do you love about creating things with your hands?
"Nearly all of my materials are vintage and I love
that with my charms you can have a image you
love encapsulated to carry with you. A lot of
my jewelry is old fashioned and has a botanical
theme, although I also love pinup girls, old
ephemera and pretty much anything vintage."
What other passions do you have?
I collect anything old and interesting and my house is a
minefield of everything old and interesting I can cram
in from buttons, china, books to vintage petticoats.
What do you love about selling on Etsy?
"I am all the way over in New Zealand so I
get a real buzz that something I have made
is being worn by somebody on the other side
of the world, that and the lovely emails I have
received from customers make it so worthwhile."

Everything is very pretty and so many lovely images! I would like to see some Celestial designs like Moon and Stars. Herb pictures and gothic plant images would be cool too.
I also like the idea of her selling a kit in her shop with everything to make a couple charms included.
