Pelhuaz' Exquisite Friend of the Week: Cherished

This Pelhuaz' Exquisite Friend of the week is dedicated to someone I met in the crazy process of creating this blog. Since the beginning she has been of great support and always saying "yes" to my crazy ideas. Alecia is a talented jewelry maker and if I have to pick a word to describe her work, will be romance. All her pieces are beautiful and delicate. I took this interview as an opportunity to get to know her better and wanted to share what I have learned with all of you! 

Now here she is!

Pelhuaz: What's your name?
Alecia: Alecia

Pelhuaz: Describe yourself in 5 words.
Alecia: Helpful,creative, fun, silly and, loving.

Pelhuaz: If you could sing one song on American Idol or any other TV Show, what would it be? 
Alecia: Hmmm...I don't know LOL!

Pelhuaz: If you were on an island and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?
Alecia: My phone, a full craft box :) and, my computer.

Pelhuaz: If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
Alecia: Hmmm... Either a chicken dinner or a grilled out meal.

Pelhuaz: If you were a Star Trek® [or Star Wars®] character, which one would it be? 
Alecia: On Star Trek, maybe Tess (from Voyager) and, Padme from Star Wars.

Pelhuaz: What is the last book you read?
Alecia: The choice.
Pelhuaz: Tell us about your Small Business… Why did you decide to open it?
Alecia: I've always crafted but when I was about 15, I started selling some of my jewelry.

Pelhuaz: What is your favorite item available at Cherished? Provide a pic.
Alecia: Hmmm... Either my robins egg birds nest or my solar system magnets :)

Pelhuaz: What do you wish you had known before you started?
Alecia: To network, I've learned this over the last year or so.

Pelhuaz: When is your Store Anniversary?
Alecia: Jan 21

 Imagine that I’m planning to open Pelhuaz, and I don’t know a thing about managing a Small Business, what will be your best advice?

Alecia: Make friend in the crafting community, they'll be there for advice when you need it.

I visited Cherished Store and picked my favorites:

I had shared this Galaxy Pendant with you previously, but I just love it!

Isn't this the cutest Robin Nest ever?

Is Spring and these Magnet will look awesome on my fridge.
