I have an awesome sponsor to share with you today.  Jaclyn1423‘s shop is full of some of the prettiest handmade, upcycled, and vintage jewelry you ever did see.  Some of her items support charities such as Autism Speaks and Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and she does custom services as well.  Jaclyn is such a sweetheart and it seriously comes out in her jewelry.  Come take a look!


1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you started your shop?
My name is Jaclyn, and I’m a features writer for a newspaper by day and lover of jewelry by night. I got into making jewelry when a friend who does chain maille jewelry, Kathleen, let me play with her beads one night. She taught me how to open a jump ring and use a crimp bead, and that was that. My aesthetic has certainly changed from the beaded pieces I started with — I gravitate now to upcyling vintage pieces or new pieces with a vintage flaire.

2) What inspires you daily to create?
Oh, everything — a beautiful strand of beads at JoAnn’s, a fantastic necklace in a catalog, an adorable outfit a friend is wearing, bored on a Saturday afternoon … you name it!

3) What are some of your favorite fall fashion trends?
I’m way into pashminas lately. I’ve always loved the scarfs you bundle up in, but something about the bright colors and soft fabrics of a lovely pashmina makes me smile. I’m also a sucker for flat boots that come up about mid-calf.

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
This past summer, I veered toward the chocolate malts at our local yummy ice cream shop, but I’m a major fan of anything chocolate with marshmallow in it.
