Today’s 33rd feature friday is from Shantelle Carpenter and she is the owner of ChristalDreamZ. Before we see her products i would just like to say, this is the first feature friday were i did not have to add a little brightness to the images. Apart from adding her etsy shop url to the images i did nothing else. Her images are spot on, when you look at them you want to touch them. That’s a great way of pulling the customer into your product images. O.k that enough of me, let’s get to know Shantelle.

Tell us about the person behind the business:
I’m a city girl from our Nation’s Capitol, who currently resides in San Antonio with my loving husband. I’ve always loved making things so when I decided to give jewellery a try it was the best way to show my creative side to the world. I am extremely blessed to have this talent and a great support team. My hubby is my best friend, and my biggest fan.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by everything around me, people, colours, objects, visions, and thoughts. I absolutely love working with colours and various textures, I love for my pieces to fun and sassy, just like my customers.
How did you get into starting your handmade business?
I’ve always love making and creating things. I loved making gifts for my family and friends, then a few years ago I decided I wanted to have my own boutique and I wanted to start small by making jewellery, and it blossomed and took off from there.
