[From Lark Jewelry & Beading: a new, semi-regular feature profiling popular jewelry and beading bloggers with five quick questions.]
Name: Lorelei Eurto
Place: Upstate New York, USA
Lorelei, what do you blog about?
I typically use my blog as a way to show off new jewelry designs that I’ve been working on, new and upcoming bead artisans, jewelry book reviews, travel photos, and giveaways.
I love to show glimpses of what’s going on my personal life, as well.
Who are you?
I’m just a girl with an obsession for beads!
I am a self-taught jewelry designer, and I’ve been creating designs that show off my love of art beads for the past four years.
I work full time at an art museum. I enjoy making jewelry in the evenings and on weekends, which is also when I update my online Etsy shop.
I haven’t met an art bead that I didn’t love. I enjoy shopping on Etsy for handmade items, including beads.
Why do you blog?
Blogging is a great way to keep a journal, and fortunately I am lucky enough to have people who like to read it!
I think as a jewelry designer it’s nice to keep communication open with my followers and customers. I enjoy the interaction between us. It helps me to get to know them, and my blog lets readers peek inside at who I am as a person.
Who and what inspire you?
I’m inspired every day by something new. Nature themes crop up into my designs regularly.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I hope that my family will be started by then. I hope I’ll have at least one child. And then I will continue to make jewelry, but probably not at the caliber that I create it now!
