TT Blog's Feature Seller

Hi everyone, welcome Lisa DiSciascio from Starlight Woods as our next Featured Seller!

A little about yourself? I am a mother of two girls, 10 and 16. I work full time at a 9-5 job and full time on my Etsy shop- How do I do that you ask? Well, I get up 2 hours before my girls get up for school, and go to bed late! Sometimes I even come up with ideas in the middle of the night and drag my butt to my kitchen table and start creating, lol!

What do you make? I make all of my creations out of fallen tree branches. I make rings, earrings, necklaces, key chains, wine charms and ornaments at Christmas time. I am thinking about adding cuff links to broaden my horizons into menswear....

How long have you made your product(s)? I started making these products in the summer of 2011, after so many crazy storms and many many downed trees and branches fell to the ground. I am a very innovative person and love to make use of what i have, at that time i had many branches, and still do!

How did you get started? I got started by making just key chains, my girls and I sat at the kitchen table and painted and laughed for hours. After that, we moved on to Christmas ornaments. Over time, we started thinking of so many other things to make and that's when things really started to take off.

Your favorite thing to make & why? My favorite thing to make are my rings and earrings. I love my rings because they make me smile, they brighten up any outfit and they are super durable, resin coated on both the front and back, which is great for me as I work in the garden, dig in the dirt, over all just not to delicate with my jewelry and these are made to last. As for the earrings- I just got my ears pierced now at 34 years old, just so that I can wear them!

Anything else you want to tell us? I put my heart and soul into my business and truly love what I do and want to make sure everyone that receives any of my creations loves them too!
