Focus on...Hunter to the Hunted!

Forest Cocoon Scarflette with Among The Pines Brooch

Amy Poprawski of Hunter to the Hunted is a new (Australian) Etsyian - joined June 19, 2009 - and has yet to break the 1st sale barrier. Since I think she's super talented, I asked her a few questions about herself so that she could gain a little exposure. Check it out!

Why did you start your shop?
Hunter To The Hunted started as a way to blend the passion I have to make things, with the unfortunate need I have to eat. After completing a Fine Arts degree, I struggled to find satisfaction in the everyday working world and although I had been 'making' myself for a few years, I had never seriously considered the option of merging 'work' with 'making' until recently. Hunter To The Hunted is the result of this merge. It is filled with my whims, my obsessions, my facinations and the inevitable results of my incessant hunting.

Have you always been crafty?
I have always been intrigued by the idea of 'making', and I have continuously sought out people who 'make', in order to exclaim and ponder over their objects and designs. I have made gifts for friends and family for many years and they have always told me that I should try to widen the circle and give others the chance to experience my creations. I always shrugged off these suggestions until recently when I decided to take the plunge and open up Hunter To The Hunted.

What are your inspirations?
I am inspired by many things, most often I am inspired by those around me. Whether it be an actual object I come across on my travels, or simply a friend expressing the need or desire for something, I am always thinking to myself...can I do that? Or Ooh! That gives me an idea!

How many items will you carry?
I am starting fairly small at the moment, trying to discover which items seem to strike the fancy of Etsy buyers and not stress myself out too much by filling my store with everything and anything!! I hope to grow the store and refine my products over time and become another Etsy success story!!
*Thanks so much, Amy. I wish you luck and hope this helps you get that first sale!*
