A Featured Blogger Series: Sydney Austin Designs.





When did you start blogging and why? I started blogging about 2 yrs ago as another way to promote my jewelry business, Sydney Austin Designs.

What inspires you to blog???
I'm slowly changing my blog.  The whole focus will not be on just my jewelry, but it will incorporate other things I am passionate about such as fashion, food, and health.


Tell us a little about your passion for jewelry? I love creating.  I love all things handmade. I feel so proud of a finished product, knowing I created it with my own two hands.

How did your Etsy Shop start? It started very slowly in 2007.  I left it unattended for about a year and a half.  Now it's my baby and I love nutruring it and seeing it grow. You can find me at www.sydneyaustindesigns.etsy.com



The thing I love most about what I do is… I am my own boss. 

 
Who are your style or inspirational icons? For my jewelry I get inspiration from nature, the ocean, and classic movies from the 1970's. Lately my style icon is Solange Knowles.  She just nails it everytime!

What item of clothing you can't live without this season? A great pair of riding boots and something with lace.


I’m currently obsessed with… Vintage Frye boots, pink lipglass by Mac, nude colored nail polish, and vintage leather clutches from the 1980's.

On a Saturday afternoon you’d most likely find me…. In the car driving my kids to one of their activities or social events!




Robyn Bourne

Where do you see your self in 5 years.  Driving or flying to visit one kid in college and getting the other kid ready for college!  Hopefully, my jewelry will be in more boutiques in different states.  I am hoping that I will be a bigger fashion blogger than what I am now!  Ha!
 Favorite Quote…  "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."

 Thank you so much Robyn for taking the time, we wish you every success.



I simply adore, Robyn's jewelry and I hope you do as well. 
Visit her Etsy Shop here, there is quit a selection to choose from.

 Love to All.

  2. I love this collection. Just favorited her shop and those spectacular Jimmi Hendrix earrings. They are soooo cool! Miss you, too, girlfriend! I've been working hard, trying to create more Christmas items for my Etsy shop and continue to do pro-bono work for churches. Take care and many blessings to you and yours!

  3. Very cool pendant. Gorgeous! Love the colors! Very cool jewelry! Really like the vanity monologues! Why are other people’s vanities way cool to look at? Thanks for stopping by my blog! Glad you appreciated the list. Yankee candles, Egyptian cotton bed linens, perfumes, and fresh roses are quality things to be addicted to! :)
