Australia Week: Suze Loves Alliecat Design Studio! & Giveaway



I love Alliecat Design Studio, a shop filled with the most wonderful bohemian jewelry.


The owner, Allie, makes colorful and fun jewelry.


I love the fact that she also makes her own beads.


I really like her style.


Everything in this shop is so vibrant. 


I've asked Allie a few questions to find out more about her and her jewelry.


Where did you learn to make jewellery?

I taught myself via the internet, magazines and books. I started with glass tile jewellery and then got into wrap bracelets and then the adventure began. I am always trying to learn something new. Currently I am trying my hand at Soutache - really loving it and fits so well in my Boho theme.


 What inspires you?

Colours, I never thought I was very good with putting colours together, but I suppose I must be ok at it... Love the vibrance of Bohemian Colours, the rustic browns, oranges, yellow to the stunning turquoises and pinks.


How did your Etsy adventure start?

I was a buyer to start with. I think I googled handmade pendants and found Etsy. I would buy artisan components and beads/pendants.. My 'real job" was a cost controller on Engineering projects (managing budgets), I was diagnosed with Fibro Myalgia over 2 years ago.... I then decided with the support of my partner to quit the job as the stress/long hours wasn't helping the illness. This is when I started up my Etsy Jewellery Store and also an Etsy Jewellery Supplies Store. It definitely keeps me busy

  
 What are your plans for the future?

To continue on making jewellery, polymer clay pieces and to diversify into other beaded bohemian items.. got so many ideas


 Do your surroundings influence your work?

I would say probably not - as I look around my craft room.. There is Japanese art on the wall, bead jars everywhere, a notice board full of bits and pieces from the UK, Paris, Japan... It is very eclectic.


Your style is bohemian, could you tell a bit more about why you've chosen it and what you like so much about it?

I have always loved bohemian jewellery and the style. I literally only wear my jewellery now, and not because I have to but because I truly love what I make. I love the colours that make up Boho, I find it really easy to create and work with those colours as opposed to the more blingy colours. I love that I can use all sorts of media as well, from czech glass, bone, wood to silk ribbon, leather, polymer clay - absolutely anything.



Allie has a second Etsy shop filled with beads. She sells her own handmade beads there.


I love Allie's use of colors.


I bought several pieces from her shop already and I'm really happy with them.


Allie's customer service is great.


She ships quickly and I love the quality of my jewelry.


If you have a special request, you can always contact Allie as she loves making custom orders.


Allie has a huge clearance section where you can buy some of her beautiful jewelry with a big discount.


 In her online shop you can find more of Allie's stunning jewelry.


Check out this fantastic shop.


And brighten up your day with a beautiful bracelet, pair of earrings or necklace.


Enjoy browsing.


And have fun shopping!
