Meet Kit from RoyalKitness

It’s Friday again, and even better, today is Friday the 13th! Superstitious people will be on the lookout for black cats and ladders, while the more new-agey types will be celebrating. One of my good friends is the latter, who chose this very day to have her wedding. (♥ Congrats Krystal & Dylan! ♥) I’m excited to be introducing you to Kit on this very special day, because she has a very special shop: RoyalKitness. Do check it out, because it is frikin’ AWESOME. Check out her interview below to find out more:

Sum yourself up in 3 sentences:
I am a young lady who’s very old at heart.
I’m a super organized person – except in my craft room!
Playing with polymer clay, creating things, and selling them to my wonderful customers is what I do for fun :)

Tell us about what you sell on Etsy:
Everything I can get my hands on to make ;-)
Specifically unique polymer clay / multimedia jewellery and housewares.

Butterfly Garden Mosaic Pendant - $25

What is your favorite thing about creating
My polymer clay work always has a very unique style… It’s just what comes to me as I make it. My works tend to “evolve” during the creation, rather than follow a specific plan.

Where do you find your inspiration?
Usually in what I have. I’ll be inspired by a particular bead, colour clay / paint, or random destash item… and then I run with it and see what happens.

Steampunk Necklacewith Purple Jewels - $25

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other Etsy sellers?

  • A picture is worth a thousand words! Your pictures should make the buyer feel calm and confident in your professionalism.
  • Tell your story! Include background info on the inspiration for your item, where you sourced the parts, what you enjoyed making, etc.
  • Be nice! Engage with your customers. Give them every confidence that they are your number one priority! I like to include a surprise bonus gift and a hand written card with all my sales :)

4 Donut Stitch Markers - $8

    I love those little donuts – food jewelry was how I started with polymer, too! Brings back good, fun memories :)
