Pearls are a Girl's Best Friend!

EtsyTwitter Team Featured Etsian - MindyG

Purple Freshwater Pearl Charm Bracelet
Our featured shop this week is MindyG, operated by Mindy Greenville. Mindy designs and sells unique handcrafted jewelry. She says eloquently that her jewelry line "has been created by blending beautiful gemstones, freshwater pearls and fabulous findings with vibrant colors and textures". It's easy to tell that Mindy loves her work, both by her words and the quality of her items. She says, "Inspiration for me comes from many simple forms...positive people, getting outside of my little world by traveling with my husband and two sons, art, fashion and music." The result is a jewelry line of sterling silver, gold, gemstones, pearls and crystals. "Pretty much anything that has facets and sparkles", she says. She loves working with textures and colors and incorporates both new or old into her designs.

Mindy serves on the Women's Advisory Committee for Mira Costa Community College. In early fall, she is participating in a big fundraiser for the college called Wine, Women & Shopping. The proceeds from this event will be used for scholarships for students in the community.

In addition, she plans to design a website, no small task! This summer, MindyG's jewelry line will be offered at some local jewelry events, too.

On Twitter, Mindy says "I am a novice at twitter, but I do follow people that have similar interests and that aren't just spamming." She likes using Twitter to help promote other team members as well and seeing "interesting bits of information" in her Twitter stream.
