The Girl Behind The Feathers: Paris from Bittersweet Nostalgia
In business since: June 2011
Based out of: Royal Oak, Michigan
I did a quick mini-interview with Paris about her new business:
Me: What inspired you to make your own jewelry?
Paris: When I was looking in stores for feather earrings I couldn't find any that I liked, so I created a pair of my own. I started getting compliments on them so I decided to start designing more and selling it.
Me: What kind of jewelry do you make?
Paris: Feather and clay earrings and necklaces.
Me: Where did the name Bittersweet Nostalgia come from?
Paris: I've always liked the word nostalgia, the sound and the meaning... but, in a way, nostalgia is bittersweet. So I put the two together and that became Bittersweet Nostalgia, simple!
Me: What's next for Bittersweet Nostalgia?
Paris: I've got a craft show in November scheduled. In the meantime I'm going to continue creating! (I've got to get a lot stocked up for the craft show!)
I swiped some photos from her site to show you a few of her creations:
And, of course, the necklace she made for me since I don't have pierced ears:

I wear this necklace all the time, seriously. The leaf is handmade out of clay with love from Paris :)
If you want to see more of her creations, check out her Bittersweet Nostalgia Facebook Page! All jewelry is handmade in Michigan. I love supporting independent artists, and you should too!
