Lilly Queen

Having trouble finding that perfect gift for a girlfriend? I've got the perfect store for you! Lilly Queen has the most amazing jewelry! Check her out!

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey there, I’m Sara of Lilly Queen. I’m a 23 year old living in Connecticut. My passion for creating things started when I was very young. I used to make my own books and sell them by the street, lemonade stands all summer long, and making jewelry to sell to my classmates. Being an entrepreneur is in my blood!

2. How long have you been making your creations?
I’ve been making things my whole life. I’ve always been a little crafter ever since I was a child getting into my mothers craft room in the basement, god all the things I used to ruin of hers just to have some fun making something I thought was cool.

3. Where do you get your creative ideas?
Lots of ideas come from looking at other pieces, nature, and creating things that I know I would love myself.

4. What is your favorite item that you have created?
My favorite item was my candles. I got tons of great reviews and comments on these. I was also asked by Whole Foods Market to send up a shipment of close to 100 candles for them to sell. Talk about awesome!! Candle making became too stressful - I had custom orders and people always asking for something. I wish I realized then I was on to something and quit my job to dedicate more time to it.

5. Tell us about the item displayed here.
The three images of jewelry shown are some of my favorite pieces. I use supplies bought from stores, tag sales, swapping with other beaders and from pulling apart old stuff. I try making my pieces unique so that no one else will have it.
