I met Brig through a forum thread and immediately hit it off with her. That is one thing I am coming to love about Etsy is it’s more than people selling things, it’s a whole community in itself. Now just a side note you will notice that Brig refers to me as PJ which is what my etsy sign on has been shortened down to in all the forum threads, Primitive Junkie is quite a bit to type out. LOL
I was able to ask Brig a few questions via Conversations on Etsy. I wanted to get to know a little bit more about the creator behind BrigaBauble and here is what she had to say.
Where are you from?
This is great advice for anyone wanting to open a store. Having a good variety to start with and promoting your butt off is what will get you going and get the sales coming in.
What is the idea and creative inspiration behind your sterling silver and amethyst rosary?You know, I’m really glad you asked me this PJ. I design and create Catholic rosaries, rosary bracelets and rosary necklaces in addition to Anglican prayer beads, which are referred to by some as “Anglican rosaries.” My goal in creating these beautiful, intricate pieces is to offer high-quality, affordable pieces to two niche markets while staying true to myself and not pretending to be someone I’m not.The first rosary I made was in garnet and sterling silver and was a gift for my mom, a devoted (yet liberal) Catholic. I have personally witnessed how my mother’s faith has helped her to find the strength to deal with difficult times. I deeply admire my mother and her faith. But my religious pieces come from my respect of faith rather than a faith of my own.
