An interview I did with one of my best friends who pretty has a DIY jewelry business.  And has become pretty successful all on her own.  She has sold jewelry to a few celebrities I.e. Erykah Badu, and just keeps on getting more and more opportunities.

 

She blogs, photographs, does her own public relations, designs jewelry, she is a part time stylist, and poet.  She is very busy.

 

The interview..

 

A great example of “Do it yourself” within our culture today can be seen
in the world of blogging. A good friend of mine Nyne, of Nyne Lyves,
knows a bit about this as she made all of her success through the online
world. Nyne is a rising jewelry designer, who gained most of her fan
base from Facebook. She blushes when we have these kinds of
conversations about how her mini empire has begun. “It’s so wild because
I have literally had a presence on the Internet since…middle school? I
remember joining Facebook in 2006 when it was only available for college
students. Now I have a Facebook “fan page” because I have “too many”
friends, like what is that?!” Though the idea of starting a fan page
sounds a bit obscure, the truth remains…the Internet is the place to
begin for an artist. Now Nyne is an Influencer for Vogue, and spends her
free time working with kids. Over the summer she spent a month at an
all-girls camp teaching them jewelry design; with DIY tips using nature.
The girls made pieces ranging from rock rings to purses with shells. For
some Facebook is the arch nemesis to reality, but for Nyne Facebook has
opened the door for opportunity.  the site to check her out is http://nynelyves.com/
