Hello my name is Huiyi pronounced "Hway Yee" a Cantonese name which means "a kind girl" I always blush when I have to mention this and I am so glad you can't see me ha ha. Well last month Krishenka hosted a giveaway for a set of my tear drop earrings and so I decided that I would like give one of you lovely ladies a chance to win one of my new range of Sterling Silver Snowflake necklaces, value $71 (£43.50) Good luck to all and look forward to sending this necklace to the winner. Easy entry using rafflecopter below.
After finishing my degree to become an interior designer I then went on to study jewellery design at the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, after my graduation I then moved to the states. I felt lost in the commercial world and went back to interior design for a living but always felt there was something missing and this needed to be corrected. At the beginning of 2010 I came back to the UK, and it was whist waiting for my documents to be approved I decided to make something fun and something I liked. My first “Pencil Lover” collection was born but as I had only sold two items over a two year period, I felt my confidence beginning to slip away.
Luckily for me I met Krishenka aka Christine who was also selling on Etsy, she was very patient with me and gave me lots of help & encouragement whilst I was learning how to stand up, just like a newborn. How time flies and here we are now in 2012 and after working very hard for the past two years I now have 183 items in my Etsy shop and have sold 1,481 items. Last month a set of my sterling silver earring studs was featured on the US TV CBS channel show called “Fashion Matters”.
It was another fantastic encouragement to my career. Looking back, all the hard work was worthwhile and I love what I am doing now and am planning many more new designs in the near future. I am delighted that Krishenka and I still keep in touch and I hope that whoever wins my Sterling Silver Snowflake necklace will enjoy wearing it for many years to come. The winner will also have a choice of necklace length from, 14,16,18 & 20 inches
