Today’s guest is jewelry designer Jen Moulton! She's been on the show before (Episode 65, if you want to catch up) and I was excited to snag just a little bit of her time to talk through a big announcement she made recently—she's just opened a physical storefront! I knew I wanted to chat about both the how and the why behind her decision to open this shop. 

In the interview we talk about the type of retail shop she’s opening and how the opportunity came about. We dive deep into the fears surrounding taking big leaps, why it’s often important to start before we’re ready and how Jen anticipates her shop opening to change the way she works.

Enjoy!

CYOP #84 - Embracing Ethically Sourced Materials + Finding Your Customer with Katie Evans of Hart Variations

Katie J. Evans, Hart Variations // creatingyourownpath.com

Today’s show is the first in a segment dedicated to those who create with uncommon or interesting materials and as soon as I landed on this theme, I knew I needed to reach out to today’s guest. Katie J. Evans of Hart Variations is a jewelry designer who uses things like butterfly wings, snake skin sheds, bones, entire insects, and feathers to create really stunning and unique pieces.

In the interview, we talk about how her materials are ethically and legally sourced, which is a process I wasn't familiar with. I envisioned her walking along and finding the materials, but it turns out there are actually rules and regulations and official suppliers for these types of materials.

We also talk a lot about her creative process, why she decided to hire help, how she’s navigated the jewelry world to find the right audience for her work and why feedback from her customers has made a world of difference in her business.

Enjoy!
