Hey, hey Brazen beauties. Candi here and have I got a treat for you! A guest interview with the owner of So Very Charming, who teamed up with Brazen for our 2nd Annual Hottie Holidays! With me today is Kat, the creative force behind, So Very Charming, where she re-purposes vintage pieces into wearable awesomeness! She creates everything from dainty everyday necklaces, barrettes and one of a kind pieces. Plus, she also does custom work. How cool is that? If you don’t know about her beautifully eclectic, whimsical jewelry, you should! Now, without further ado, here are 8 things that you don’t know about Kat.
Brazen: Kat, thanks for joining me here today. I’m excited to let our Brazen audience know a little bit about you. So, tell me about So Very Charming. How is it that you got started making jewelry?
Kat: I started making jewelry because I was selling random vintage finds on Etsy while finishing up school. This eventually lead to a small stock pile of vintage jewelry. Which lead me to discovering how much I enjoyed making my own unique jewelry using vintage jewelry components. I started selling my jewelry on Ebay in 2005. From there, I opened my first Etsy shop in 2007, and it’s been my creative outlet ever since!
Brazen: What are three things that you never leave the house without?
Kat: I never leave home without lipstick, gum and hand lotion. My hands get really dry!
Brazen: What do you feel is the single most challenging thing about having and running your own business?
Kat: My biggest challenge is balancing my day job and being a mom, with my passion for making and selling my jewelry. In a perfect world, making jewelry would be my full time job.
Brazen: What’s your favorite color?
Kat: I have too many favorite colors to list just one, which is probably why I love rainbows.
Brazen: Heels, flats or boots?
Brazen: Favorite beverage?
Kat: Hot tea is my all time fave beverage.
Brazen: What is your favorite thing about humanity?
Kat: What I love most about humanity is there will always be more people who desire peace than people who don’t.
Brazen:Last question Kat, what do YOU love about Brazen?
Kat: I love that Brazen Cosmetics uses safe, natural ingredients in high quality makeup. I am absolutely in love with my Fierce + Flawless finishing powder! It’s beautifully packaged too.
Thanks so much for stopping by Kat! To find out more about Kat, you can catch her this weekend, December 13-14, during our Hottie Holidays at the Brazen Beauty Lounge! Where she will be showcasing her jewelry(which will be available for purchase!) Also be sure check out Kat on her Facebook page or her Etsy shop, here and here.
So proud of Sandi and the Brazen Team for sprinkling their awesomeness at the Detroit Urban Craft Fair!!! This year was THE biggest yet and at the end of the show, over 8,000 people decided to shop small and handmade this year! That is unbelievable. The Brazen girls were hustling all day for two days. If you were one of the many that came out to say “Hi”, we want to give you a shout out and say “Thank You” for showing us your love and support, it truly means so much to all of us and we appreciate you guys. Now, a gratuitous photo of our fearless leader at the booth this weekend! Doesn’t she look fierce!
Hey there lovelies, what are we all doing today? I’m just doing my best to stay toasty warm with a hot beverage and a good movie.
