If you are a fan of jewelry, or copper, or handmade items, or beautiful things...you will love today's interview and giveaway from Louie's Hardware. Read on to learn more about Kerri and her amazing shop.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: Hello - My name is Kerri Mackey; I am the creator of Louie's Hardware. I make jewelry from copper, brass and beads. My day job is as an architect for a commercial architectural firm. Although my job requires a great deal of creativity; I still crave an outlet for my own designs and ideas. I also just love making things! I come from a very crafty family. My mom can sew anything and she's a wonderful cake decorator - she made my wedding cake! My dad is a jack of all trades, plus he's very good at instructing. My younger brother does some amazing woodworking. My husband and I are expecting our first child and he made us the most beautiful toy chest And finally; my older brother is in culinary school; he makes some really delicious dishes. So I think the crafty gene was passed down.
WHAT IS YOUR SHOP AND WHAT DO YOU SELL: My shop is Louie's Hardware. I sell jewelry - most is made from hammered or brushed copper or brass. I also work with some semi precious stones and pearls. I've also started creating collage art which are mounted on wood boards. I really like doing both even though they are so different.
HOW DO YOU PROMOTE/MARKET YOUR SHOP: I promote primarily with Facebook. I have a fan page. I also like to do give aways at local events - silent auctions, swag bags, charity events, etc. Plus, family and friends wear my jewelry and tell people about it.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SHOP GOAL IN THE NEXT 6 MONTHS: I guess I have two biggest goals - one is to create more pieces to add to my shop. Especially the metal pieces as well as more collage art. The other goal is to be more consistent about my Facebook posting in order to draw more fans.
My husband - he's the best
Fall weather - this is my absolute favorite time of year
