Up and Coming Jewelry Artist - 7 Year Old Jalynn Morter

This week's featured artist is my daughter-in-law's niece Jalynn Morter. She's only 7 years old and already showing signs of becoming a great jewelry designer and artist. It's so refreshing to see someone so young doing such great work. She has a good sense of color and loves making jewelry. When you read her interview you'll also see she has the right attitude to make it in this ever growing and saturated industry.

Jalynn can often be found in her family's basement where a small work station has been put together to nuture her love of the art. And, there is definitely an art to making stunning jewelry and finding your own sense of style. Jalynn is well on her way to becoming a true artist.

Interview with Jalynn:

Question #1 When did you start beading?

"This summer, because it was summer and I didn't have school. It was my hobby."

Question #2 Why did you start beading?

"Because I wanted to make money by selling my jewelry, so i can buy more beads to make more jewelry"

Question #3 What is your favorite thing about beading?

"Trying to make money to keep buying beads, to keep making jewelry."

Question #4 What is your favorite thing you have made?

" My brown and green necklace with matching bracelet, and my bracelet with my birthstone."

Please feel free to write a comment for Jalynn, say hello and encourage her to continue to grow as a jewelry artist. I'm so proud of her and her passion!

Thank you Jalynn for allowing me to share your jewelry with the online community!!
