Talented Tuesday - Misanthropy-Creations

I would like you to meet Michelle and her Etsy shop:  Misanthropy Creations .

If you are looking for Antique looking, zany and sometimes morbid, one of a kind handcrafted jewelry and accessories. Gothic, Weird, Oddities and Curiosities!  Then you will love the items at Misanthropy Creations.
Let's get to know Misanthropy Creations and Michelle:

What would you like us to know about you?
I'm allergic to the color brown.
My parents are from two different continents.
I want to be a paranormal investigator.
My pinkie toes don't touch the floor.

What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
I've always crafted. I believe it started when my grandmother taught me how to crochet as a child. I always have an overwhelming feeling to keep my hands busy. I call myself a mixed media artist. I'm always trying to find uses for discarded house hold objects. I started my Etsy Shop to try to use up my craft supplies because I have so much laying around the house. It turns out that my collection of supplies have grown since then and I became very serious about my shop and the outcome!

How did you come up with your shop name?
I'm not a big fan of most people. I'd rather sit at home and craft then be sociable. I'm also a waitress/restaurant manager so I feel like I see enough people and have to deal with people enough that I should be able to hid away in my craft cave. Don't get me wrong though, I love my customers and the love and support that the Etsy community provides!

How would you describe your shop?
Antique looking, zany and sometimes morbid, one of a kind handcrafted jewelry and accessories. Gothic, Weird, Oddities and Curiosities!

What inspires you?
I find color inspirations from:  Under the sea.  In the sky.  Science fiction movies, television shows, books and magazines.I also find inspiration from crafts stores. I could spend hours upon hours just walking around and getting ideas while looking at the supplies and then purchasing them to follow those ideas through to completion. Love and friendship are also huge inspirations for me as well. It's such a great feeling to give someone a gift that you made and see their face knowing that you made that item.
To me handmade means love. To me handmade means care. That is exactly what each one of my items is made out of. Love and Care. Nothing in my shop is mass manufactured by machines. I have touched every piece and every piece has touched me. 

Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
My new This Means War - Rifle Bullet Necklaces
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
I think I would be more concerned with survival than keeping my self busy with crafts, so I believe the most useful items would be scissors, glue or tape, and twine.

Where else can we find you?
