“Do what you love!” How many times have you heard that phrase? Well, Gabrielle of BStrung certainly lives by those words. A mother of twins, she found her children teaching her about jewelry making. She caught on very quickly and the “addiction” began.
I asked Gabrielle about her childhood and how she came to make her home in Atlanta, “I grew up in Music City, Nashville, TN. I left Nashville to pursue my dream of being an artist to attend Rhode Island School of design. There I got my BFA in illustration. I moved around a bit with my husband from NYC to Ohio and now we have settled in Atlanta.”
Those southern roots are sure strong and it shows in the love of her family. “Raising my twin girls has been my most challenging “job” yet most rewarding too. ”We also asked Gabrielle if she had any pets, and had to chuckled at her response, “ I am the caretaker of a very finicky miniature Schnauzer.” Her sense of humor was apparent and shows a bit of her personality.
By day she is a freelance Graphic Designer, but always leaves time for making new and unique jewelry for her Etsy shop.
Unique handmade lamp work glass jewelry is what you will find and more in her shop. Be sure to stop in and take a look at all of her beautiful art work which includes earrings, bracelets and necklaces. You might find a surprise or two there, too!
