Idle Hands Designs Interview & Giveaway

If you're the type who doesn't go for pastels and find yourself drawn to the dark side then we've got the silver-smith for you! Idle Hands Designs caters to those who indulge in the lighter side of the dark side. Lyndsey began making jewelry with a slightly shadowy twist back in 2006. She's bringing all the goods to accessorize your gothic romance.

UCU: What is your favorite part about Urban Craft Uprising or other large-scale craft shows?
IHD: The community for sure. It's a really fun event and the UCU team is fantastic. Even as a vendor your treated like a guest.
UCU: *blushing*

UCU: What do you like best about crafting/creating your product?
IHD: Creating a piece that someone connects with and makes them happy. The sutured heart necklace is such a statement piece. Hearing the stories of heartbreak and recovery makes each necklace very special. And the mustaches keep my days fun and exciting!

UCU: Is there something you are hoping to shop for, a treasure you'd like to find at this year's Summer UCU?
IHD: everything!!!

UCU: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
IHD: Magic wand would be helpful in general ::)

UCU: Its summer vacation time. Beach or the mountains?
IHD: Mountains

Thanks Lyndsay! And thanks for giving us the "Whoo" owl necklace as a giveaway. One lucky reader will be selected at random from the comments below. We will announce the winner on Friday.

  10. I met Lyndsay at Mourning Market in Seattle last month and after talking with her, she is making me a custom chrome-a-dome ring! Her work is gorgeous and she has been a pleasure to work with! Can't wait to sport my new ring!
