For years now, I’ve run my little Etsy shop, enjoying the ever-increasing sales and new business. I have LOVED making custom charms for company and corporate events, book swag for up-and-coming authors, and cute little custom-made keepsake gifts like bracelets and bookmarks.
THEN my beautiful and talented friend, Jayme Mansfield, decided that in addition to doing all the amazing things she ALREADY does like teach art, create art, run a studio and make hand-painted items, that she should write books. Not only did she decide to write, she did it WELL. Her talent amazes me! She won awards, wrote MORE stories, and got more manuscripts accepted!
Then she came to me.
She needed help getting organized online. She wanted a new site that would tie everything together and look professional to potential publishers, etc.
And I said yes! :o)
We had quite the experience getting everything organized and put together just right, but it’s finally up and running!
This lead to new connections, and new web designs. I make it simple for the client; they tell me what they need, I design a site, and then they can go in and edit as needed without being at the mercy of my schedule. So far it has worked well, and I’ve enjoyed it more than I though I would!
So for now, I guess I can add Web Designer BACK to the list of things Denilleeo Designs can offer. Who would have thought that was gonna happen!?! :o)
I recently had an interview with Kate Jones of Om Shanti Handcrafts. Check it out!
“Denille runs Denille E.O. Designs, featuring awesome painted wooden pendants, jewelry, and art. Some of her pendants are sold solo, ready to be strung from a chain of your choice and worn; others she makes into bookmarks, purse clips, and even wine charms.
I interviewed her a while ago, and here’s what she had to say:
I experimented with different materials for the pendants, but had the best outcome with wood. I just like the effect on wood created by the transfer process I use.
Tell me about the experimentation — I’m especially interested in the way you think about your process and the materials you use.
When I first decided I wanted to “make” stuff to sell, I didn’t yet know what that would be so I just played with all kinds of materials. For example, I experimented with clay, fabric, thread, different papers, lots of paint, pretty much anything you can find at a craft store. Finally, I started messing with wood, and it looked the best with my transfer process.
It just felt right…does that make sense??” Read More…
I recently had an interview with Melissa R. Garrett of Root and Sprout about my business, denille e.o. designs. Check it out!
Art teacher and website designer Denille E. Obermeyer decided she just wasn’t busy enough, so she used her degree in Fine Arts to establish denille e.o. designs, an online boutique specializing in handmade wooden pendants and accessories.
Denille combines her love of digital design and painting to create wearable art that is both beautiful and affordable, and she prides herself on crafting high-quality pieces that are unlike anything you might find in a sterile big-box retailer.
Denille transfers her original designs to small wooden pendants (1.25 in. x 1.25 in. x 1 cm), which she then coats with resin to produce a shiny and durable finish. Although her current bestseller is the pendant, Denille also offers bookmarks, paintings, and accessories. Read full article…
