Birds of a Feather Giveaway

Monday, February 15, 2010

If you have ever spent any time on my Etsy shop it is not hard to conclude that I have a slight obsession with feathers. I love how they are a constant contradiction: natural but not plain, simple yet unique, and always elegant. So naturally, when I found Tetrik on Etsy I had to introduce you guys to this wonderful feather filled shop!

I caught up with Tianna for a little chat, and she has generously offered a $25 giveaway for all Embellishers to enter! So take a look and start of dreaming of what could soon be in your jewelry box!

1. How did you get to where you are now?
A lot of time and dedication! I’ve always been a creative person, so exploring different mediums of art has always appealed to me.

I started my business 5 years ago when I was just 15. In the beginning it was just plain “hobo” bags made out of recycled material from the thrift store that I sold to my friends. In high school I really got into screen printing so out of my basement/sauna-turned-darkroom I incorporated my own hand-drawn art onto the purses and began getting more recognized outside of my friends circle. After high-school I went on a hiatus and did some travelling throughout SE Asia and Mexico. Last fall I made my first feather headband and had such a positive response from the public that I couldn't ignore.

The pivotal point for me was getting my work seen in stores. I sold over 50 headbands in 4 different retail locations in just two months so all of a sudden I was running a business again! Since then I haven’t looked back!

2. What is your favorite thing having your shop?
I love the ability to connect with people from all over! I’ve met so many amazing people! It’s the best feeling in the world when someone chooses your product over the millions of others floating around on the internet, to me that’s one of the biggest compliments.

3. What can we look to see from you in the future?
For Spring/Summer 2010 there’s going to be more beautiful feather creations to come. Single earrings with long and flowing feathers with gold findings to go along with the pretty pastels and lingerie inspired looks on the runway this season. More beautiful iridescent parrot feather earrings and also perhaps a necklace line in the works but I’m not giving away all my secrets!

4. If you could have a super power what would it be?
To be able to fly!

5. Any special tidbits?
All my parrot feathers are naturally molted and when possible I use feathers I’ve collected from my parents beach home, or the local park where they have beautiful peacocks and ducks.

I most of all LOVE doing custom pieces, so if you have a special occasion coming up and you want something really unique and like my style feel free to contact me! Check out my facebook fan page for photos of previous custom orders!

The soft bohemian feel of Tetrik's line, along with the slight Native American inspiration is both serene and inviting. Be sure to check out her shop, and facebook page for the latest scoop on Tianna's Earthy line. I wish I could enter this lovely contest, but nonetheless I hope you win!

Doors close Friday, February 19th at Midnight NYC time.
