I would like you to meet Junie Duncan. She is the owner and designer of Junie’s Trinkets. Today Junie is going to tell us a little about her shop, what inspires her to create, and some about her creative process.
Hi Junie, can you please tell us what you make and sell, how long have you been doing this, and what made you decide to open a shop?
I am a widowed mother of 2 boys- also disabled. In March, I decided to make jewelry to pass the time, possibly as gifts for family & friends. I shared a couple photos, & had a friend order from me! After talking to some other long time friends & shop owners I decided to try it out. Now, I do this full time. My page has grown to over 1150 fans in less than 4 months… I think of that as a sign I am doing what I SHOULD be. I keep my prices low, I know what it is like to see something I want, but it be out of my reach financially. I firmly believe EVERYONE has the right to have something special made, just for them. If I can do that for them, that makes me happy.
I am very pleased to say my work is now in 4 countries, & I also won a wire wrapping contest recently @ http://www.facebook.com/SuperiorAgates It was my 4th wire wrapped cabochon, so I was extremely surprised & thrilled to win! :)
Tell us a little more about you. What other interests do you have?
I love FB, lol I spend most of my time there. I also enjoy reading, movies, spending time with my kids. I also teach Sunday school.
