|Genevieve, Cora & Aidan|
Genevieve, as you can see in her picture has a great sense of humor. She is married with 3 (soon to be 4!) kids and 2 gerbils. Currently she is a stay at home mom with her kids and the gerbils.
Before reading the entire interview I wondered how she ended up in Newark, DE after growing up near Portland, OR. It turns out she attended Virginia Tech getting a degree in geotechnical engineering. She worked as an engineer until about 6 years ago when she took time off to have her daughter. Now she works part time at home on her Etsy shops. She spends her weekdays taking kids to school and activities, going to the playground and sometimes out to lunch for a special treat.

When asked about inspiration this was her reply "I'm inspired most by color and nature. I really like to make simple designs with a splash of color, like many of the Swarovski crystal and glass wire wrapped earrings in my shop. They are a simple design which translates well to many kinds of crystal, glass, or gemstone pendants. I also like to incorporate nature such as choosing colors from the fall leaves, or adding charms to my pieces in the shapes of leaves, snowflakes, insects or animals".
