Etsy Blog Party:: Heavenly Flower


Who:: Leilani @ Heavenly Flower
Business Established:: Heavenly Flower, the jewelry company was founded in 2002. I opened the Etsy shop to test the waters of online selling full time in 2008; but didn't really actively promote it until January of 2009.
What she does:: My "thing" is custom jewelry. Most of the pieces I list on Etsy are often made up of left over materials (beads, mostly gemstone beads) from custom projects. These pieces are priced significantly lower than what I would normally charge for custom work.
How she finds balance:: By being flexible and realizing that some days I just am not going to get done everything I want to accomplish. With two small children who are age two and under, it is impossible to follow a set schedule. I prefer to follow a daily "rhythm" and tackle work and chores as we as a family are inspired to do them. I have found setting weekly or even monthly goals make the most sense for me right now.
Her best advice:: Regardless of how busy you become, don't forget to take care of yourself. Even if there are orders to fill or new products to develop, I almost always have a nap in the afternoon with my children. Not being sleep deprived It makes me think clearer and be less cranky with my children! I am more efficient and organized to get things done, and also have much more energy to keep up with my work, household and children. I find if I allow myself to be tired my creativity and mood suffers. I think we all need to be creative in order to juggle the many hats we have as mothers and business owners. Not to mention proper rest and low stress means less illness. Once we become sick everything grinds to a halt!
Get it now:: 20% off all orders simply type "MARKETMOMMY" in the "note to seller" at Etsy checkout.
What they are giving away:: $30 gift certificate for my Etsy shop; and 3 $10 gift certificates for my Etsy Shop.

Your work is beautiful! My favorite is the Moukaite with Hematite and Sterling Silver. I love the neutral colors--could use to dress up or down and wear it with anything! Thanks for the giveaway!

I really love your jewelry! my favorite bracelet is the Semi-precious Tiger Eye Cuff. I like this one because it is simple, yet stunning, rugged looking yet elegant as well.

Thank you all for your comments & feedback! I am pleased to see that my philosophy for designing jewelry is coming through loud & clear: versatility is so important esp. in the economy! Something that can be worn with many outfits is key. Thank you for checking out my shop & best of luck all!

Beautiful jewelry! I love the "BRACELET - Semi-precious Tiger Eye Cuff Astrology Gemini Birthstone Leo." I love its naturalistic look. I wear a lot of neutral colors--browns and tans, so this would look good with my clothing.
