Kattfive is one of my newest finds on etsy and quickly becoming one of my favorites! I'm a sucker for beautiful jewelry...and beautiful shoes and beautiful purses. OKAY, maybe I'm just a sucker.
The woman behind Kattfive is Julie Gastelum, a 41 year old mom of a 14 year old who has been married for 21 years. Whew, that's a lot of numbers! Here's a little interview with her:
How long have you been making jewelry?
I have always been facinated with the art of jewelry making but didn't start actually creating until a couple of years ago.
How did you get started?
I got started by just buying some supplies to make a simple pair of earrings and now I have my own shop on Etsy. It has been really exciting to see how that has progressed.
Who is your biggest fan?
My husband and daughter are my biggest supporters and fans.
What's your favorite part of crafting?
Creating jewelry has been and still is a great joy and relaxer for me. All the stresses of the day just go away.
