Spotlight on....

Welcome to our 3rd installment of the Spotlight series from Sophie n Me. Today we are spotlighting..... 1. Your First name and name of your shop(s)? Jodi, JPantuck, One of A Kind 2. Day or night job if you have one. I'm a full time Mommy (and an accountant during tax season). 3. Where do you get the inspiration for your designs/shop? I like to add a new twist to and old idea. For example, I designed a piece using a vintage locket with black and white photos inside onto a long gold chain piece with modern accents, like Swarvoski crystal and gold charms. One of my favorite pastimes is to seek out unusual objects and give them new life by re-purposing them.

Delicate Black on Black Pearls

Lovers Sterling and Brass Necklace

Sometimes I'm just attracted to colors or textures. For example, I love cream pearls with brown leather. The pearls are classic but combined with the leather makes it modern. Neutral Suede with Pearls 4. What was your favorite cartoon character as a child? I liked Sesame Street better than cartoons as a child and still do! I just went to see the Henson production called "Puppet Up" and loved it. (for adults only!) 5. What did you have for lunch today? Coffee- My one vice is my caffeine addiction. 6. Finish this sentence "If I had superpowers I would have...." The ability to take away sickness.

7. Days of our Lives or General Hospital? I watch two shows right now- 1.Glee 2.The Big Bang Theory
8. What makes you giggle? I giggled this morning while listening to the podcast "Risk". Also, my daughter does stand-up and watching her makes me giggle too! 9. What don't people know about you? I love to paint.
10. How many hours do you spend a day searching for stuff on Etsy? I bet I spend an hour on Etsy a day. I am planning for my sons bar mitzvah and I found an artist on Esty who is designing the center pieces. She is using old tools she found at garage sales and old computer mother boards that will blink. The theme is "making or building things / electronics" because that is what my son is into. The other person I found on Etsy is someone who will make the gift bags. He is putting together kits for the kids which will include making a robot out of a toothbrush and making LED circuits. I love being able to support amazing artists on Etsy.
