Etsy Euroweek 2011 - An Italian shop

Here we are , yet another shop from my favourite European country - Italy :) and Roma is such a lovely city , so romantic.

I bijoux dello Stregatto is the name of the shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/bijouxdellostregatto

Hi!

My name is Priscilla, I’m from Rome where I live with my husband, my daughter and my cat.

The name of my shop is “I bijoux dello Stregatto” . Probably you are asking yourself why, and who is Stregatto?
Stregatto in italian is Cheshire cat of "Alice in Wonderland". I love cats, and I think that they are really magic!

But don’t worry: I also love all other animals!

I take inspiration from everything around me. I look to the past (I love the vintage style so much!), to nature, and I think that we must listen to our mood too.

I've loved to be crafty since I was a little child.

There are so many things I like to do with my hands... but there is so little time to make them!

I love crocheting, knitting and cross stitching. 

Jewelry is my passion though.



I create and sell one of a kind or limited edition jewelry. I don’t like to make massive production: I think that every woman is unique and so must be her jewels.

I love to use crystal beads, pearls, charms, silver....and I love to experiment with new techniques. I think that there is a jewel for every mood and I can wear little earrings or enormous ones...it all depends on my mood!

I also love to collect jewelry, especially American vintage jewelry.

I am a stay at home mom and I work in the morning or late in the evening, in a smoke free space. My table is in front of the window and while I’m working I can see the trees around me.

I opened my shop on Etsy on 2008 and I love so this community so much.

I have many friends here, from every country of the world: I think that this is really exciting!

I love my work so much!
