Talented Tuesday - Cherished Jewels

I would like you to meet Jessica and her Etsy shop:  CherishedJewels .

If you are looking for handmade hair clips, flower bobby pins, knit baby booties, and hats, Then you will love the items at CherishedJewels

Let's get to know CherishedJewels and Jessica:

What would you like us to know about you?
My name is Jessica and I am 19 years old. I love crafting in any way, shape, and form!! (I get it from my very talented grandmothers). I started knitting when I was a Sophomore in high school and have enjoyed expanding my creativity over the years. I mostly make hair clips and knit baby items, but am just learning to learn crochet, which is very exciting!  
What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
Honestly, I started making so many things that I needed to start getting rid of it! And because I enjoy making stuff, I figured that if I could sell my handmade items, then I could use the money to buy more supplies to make more!! (It’s a never ending cycle with me!) I started selling my handmade goods in my mother’s consignment store, then decided to start an Etsy shop to have access to more people around the country.

How did you come up with your shop name?
I really wanted to include my middle name in my shop name. That way it would be somewhat personal, but not be obvious to everyone that it was me! So I came up with Cherished Jewels (Jewel being my middle name), which basically means that you should cherish all those precious jewels in your life. : )

How would you describe your shop?
Most of my items are for babies and children, like the beanies and baby booties. The hair clips can be used for any age, though. I make them for little girls and babies, but I am always wearing some of my handmade hair accessories and people always compliment them. They can even be worn by animals!

What inspires you?
My little sister would have to be a huge inspiration for me. Whenever she needs a matching hair accessory for an outfit, I’ll go and make her one. I love experimenting with different colors and styles and she is usually the first to try them out for me!

Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
Definitely my hair clips because I can do so many different things with them! I can make them in any color I desire and can use yarn, ribbon, and even tulle. Plus, I LOVE shopping for different types of ribbon to make them with and there are so many cute accent pieces that I can accent them with. The possibilities are endless with my flower hair clips!

If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
Yarn, ribbon, and my flower maker! :P

Where else can we find you?
I do not have any other websites besides Etsy, but if you ever have any questions, comments, concerns… you can email me at

Thanks so much Jessica.  It has been great getting to know you and discovering your shop and your lovely items.

Now please show Jessica some support and let us know which of her pieces are your favorite from her shop! Oh...and go ahead and heart a few of her items along with her shop :)

Have a great week!

    I hardly comment, but i did some searching and wound up here "Talented Tuesday - Cherished Jewels".
    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.

    Is it only me or does it look like some of these comments come
    across like written by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to
