Guest this week: RelyDesign + Giveaway

This week, I want to introduce an Italian girl like me, who makes beautiful creations with paper, RelyDesign! She was kind enough to offer to my readers, also a giveaway: the beautiful and original HairPins that you can win immediately after reading this interview:

1- Tell us something about yourself
Hi, I am Elisa, an Italian interior designer with a passion for making things…. Some years ago I started to make jewelry with paper and I realized that I loved it! ! I think it is amazing to turn paper into something as different as a jewel! I also enjoy making cards and collages.
2- What is your Craft? How did you learn?
My craft involve the use of paper, folded paper jewelry and pop-up cards! I learned it by myself, with books and tutorials. I always loved paper and since high school I was used to create paper models from my projects! I am also really interested in the Japanese culture and origami style!

3.What advice would you give to a new seller?
I am also a new seller so I am thinking about all the great advices other sellers gave to me in the last few months. Patience probably is the most important but also take good shots and make your way and style!!!

4. What are your favorite shops or blogs?
I have loads of favorite shops and blogs. I love to spend my day surfing the net so every day I am pretty sure to find something new and amazingly beautiful! I love going through favorites of other shops and blogs! I really like Oh joy! because it's full of great stuff (design, illustrations, fashion,....)


5. Anything else you want to share with us
I'd like to underline that all my paper creations are made durable and protected with glue and varnish and that I made every single items with great care. I also love create them using recycled paper (magazines pages, tea boxes, yogurt boxes...) and customize pattern! The great thing about my cards and jewelry is the uniqueness and the personalization!


to participate in this Giveaway, simply make One or All of the following rules:
(each dot is a chance to win, every one must be made in a separate comment - leave a link where I can contact you
)

  • Become my Follower: Facebook - Blog - Twitter (leave a comment letting me know which site you follow)
  • Spread the Word: Twitter, facebook or Blog about this giveaway and leave a link
  • Love RelyDesign's Etsy shop: put it in your favorites (leave the link in the comments of your etsy account)
  • Become RelyDesign's Follower: Facebook - Twitter - Blog (leave a comment letting me know which site you follow)
