If you LOVE flowers and you LOVE color...then Hardia's shop is where you need to look! Let's discover her creative story...
|Yellow rose necklace|
My first creation was a rose. I like flower so I tried to create a rose to make a ring for my daughter. I watched YOU TUBE..:)
What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?
My Craft story began when my daughter had summer holiday, and look for something to do for her summer holiday. I found Polymer Clay, but I don't know about What is that Polymer Clay and what to do with it. So I was googling a lot , went to library, bought a book, magazine and take online course. Anyway.. we did fun with Polymer clay, but when my daughter went back to school. I couldn't stop to play with Polymer Clay, it became my addiction. So I made some of flowers for Jewelry. I found Etsy from Internet , and I saw many people so creative and selling their stuff on Etsy. since I have been practicing and made some of works ( I couldn't wear all my creation for myself) so on November 2011, I started selling in Etsy. I was a buyer though.
How did you come up with your shop name?
Dia Szabo Design, Dia was taken from Hardia, it is just a nick name. Szabo is my husband's family name. I just want use a name that easy to remember since I have Foreign name, so It is not easy to pronounce .
