a visit with: Kerrin Pantelakis of Lymric

Over the next few months leading up to our November market, Tuesday through Thursday we'll be showcasing one of our 2012 market artists, their work, and a little peek at where they make the magic happen. We hope you'll enjoy this new series, where we'll ask the same questions of each of our makers. 

You'll get to know a little bit about our talented makers and what inspires them, read about their favorite ways to recharge their creativity, and learn what experience has shown them to be an invaluable piece of the puzzle in selling their work. Come November, won't it be great to walk into a room filled with inspiring, familiar faces? We think so, too!

Today we're spending some time with talented jeweler and returning Second Storie vendor, Kerrin Pantelakis...

a visit with:

- Kerrin Pantelakis - 

What first inspired you to create/make what you do now?
My first inspiration for making jewelry was when I was 16 and I got into stringing beads and twisting hemp necklaces. I would go to concerts and festivals and try to sell my wares. People dug it, so I kept making.

Your advice for someone just starting out
and wanting to sell their work?
My one piece of advice I has is take good photos. It's all about the images and craftsmanship.

Three things or people who inspire you?
I am inspired by nature, industry, shares and light. Color is paramount! Music moves me.

Favorite way to take a break/recharge your creative batteries?
My favorite break is riding my bike, playing guitar, and having fancy drinks with my friends.
