Giveaway 30 Days - Cameo Necklace - Serendipity Licious

Day 19's Giveaway is a Cameo Necklace from Serendipity Licious: 
Candy of Serendipity Licious creates jewelry in Aurora Colorado for fun and as a creative outlet. About the influence behind her store name, Candy says: 
"SERENDIPITY is my favorite word ~ meaning: the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely."
This is a great picture of Candy's studio. Don't you love her "dream" banner? What an inspirational space!! 
There are so many great things in the Etsy store
but here are a few of my favourites:

1) How does your art practice fit in to your life?
Right now, my jewelry business is my life. It's my full-time job. It can be hard at times but very rewarding. 
2) Where does everything come together? 
I work out of my home. I have designated one of our bedrooms as my work studio. 
3) Do you have any specific goals for your Etsy site or art practice? 
At first I started my business with the hopes of just earning a little extra money but now I am working on getting my items in local shops to help get my name out there. I’m constantly working on building my brand. I really enjoy what I’m doing and would love to become a big success! 
4) What would be your super power if you could have one? 
I would choose Omnipotence!
5) Recommend a good book and movie 

My all time favorite movies are The Goonies and The Shawshank Redemption so if you haven't seen either of those you totally should!  I would recommend any book by Dean Koontz or Nora Roberts. Love them!
6) Where do you live in the world? What do you like most about it? 
I am originally from Northern California but moved to Denver, CO with my husband a little over 6 years ago. It is very beautiful here but very dry do to the high altitude. We have enjoyed living here but we are thinking of moving to somewhere on the east cost, North Carolina perhaps.
