Introducing Jennifer Jeffs of Gnome Woods
It is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderful artist and a great person, Jennifer Jeffs. She is one of the newest leaders of the PCETeam on Etsy. She is truly an all around wonderful person and it’s my joy to introduce you to her today.
Meet Jennifer Jeffs
I am a work at home wife and mommy to a rambunctious three year old. I grew up as an only child in a country area and developed a love for nature at a very young age. I was always drawing or making something when I was young. Everyone – from family to teachers to friends – always predicted I’d be an artist.
It was about two years ago when I picked up a brick of polymer clay and began fiddling with it – with the intention to create some beads for a necklace. Having never really sculpted before I was intrigued. That day I began making all sorts of figures: birds, bears, turtles, you name it.
After a few weeks I quickly went from clay crafter to clay artist. After some encouragement from family and friends, I started selling on Etsy in October 2013. Although I am very new to selling on Etsy, I am quickly learning the ropes and making wonderful new friends. It’s a great community of artists and I am constantly inspired by everyone’s talent.
What Makes Your Items Unique?
I think my meticulous attention to even the tiniest of details, my quality of work and mix of simple yet whimsical characters, is what sets my store apart from others.
What’s Your Favorite Thing to Make?
My favorite items to make, by far, are the gnomes! Each one has such a little personality. From the tip of their hats to a slight tilt of their heads, each one is unique and has their own look. I’m always amazed – despite being the same size and design – how each one turns out so different!
Do You Take Custom Orders?
At this time I have two types of creations in my Etsy store, OOAK (one of a kind) and made to order. I do not repeat OOAK designs but, if requested, I am more than happy to sculpt something which includes the same types of characters and/or feeling.
