Under a New Light

Wednesday, March 30, 2011




 Don't forget to "laugh a lot. Celebrate every gorgeous moment. Open up. Dive in. Be Free."                   
Those were the words that welcomed me to Guisela's profile page at her Etsy shop, Under a New Light.  I really couldn't imagine better words to describe the kind of person that she seems to be or the care-free playful jewelry in her shop! Her jewelry makes me daydream about pretty Bohemian dresses or white flowing shirts and jean shorts sitting around campfires and walking along beaches. Don't get me wrong, I would wear those amazing Turquoise Indian Arrow earrings any day of the week - and then every time I caught a glimpse of them I'd smile to myself about my little daydream =)

Flying Feather Earrings // Eclipse Upcycled Leather Zipper Pouch

Enjoy this feel-good interview with Guisela...
1.  Your shop, Under a New Light, has such a beautiful ambiance - where does your inspiration come from?
I really love photography. I'm not a photographer, but I get lots of inspiration from the color combination, the landscapes, the objects, the spaces. Sometimes, it's a photo with a Native American touch that helps me develop a new design.  Sometimes, it's geometry. I think that it's the influence of my science background :D

2. Is there a story behind the name of your store?
It's a bit of the story of my life. I'm always seeking new experiences and trying to constantly look at life from different perspectives.  And this is what I want to accomplish with my designs: Inspire people to see life under a new light.
 
3. What are 5 things that make you really happy?
-a great smile for my baby-girl
-a big hug
-a person who expresses his/her feelings
-a big bowl of ice cream
-a song that makes me dance

4.  Do you have a favorite item in your shop?
Currently I'm in love with my Flying Feathers Earrings (pictured above). (me too, lady, me too!)

Thank you for the interview, Guisela!

Those feather earrings are AMAZING (so into feathers right now, as well as the rest of the world) but I like these because they look they are made out of fabric or something...really cool and different looking. Great find.
