What is the story behind your store/brand logo? I really wanted something that looked simple but cute with sort of a ‘fancy’ feel to it that was also in my handwriting. It took me quite a while to settle on something that I thought would be good to represent my shop~
What would your brand “elevator pitch” be? Starsweets has cute handmade accessories to help you live your best kawaii life~
How has your brand evolved since its inception? When I originally decided to start an online shop it was mainly for my artwork and very few handmade bows & small plushies at the time. Now it’s developed into much more of an accessory shop that has art based products as well!
What does a day in the studio look like for you? Most days start with a cup of tea and packing orders, then typically I’ll spend the rest of the day on artwork. On days where I’m also handmaking other items I’ll usually throw on some TV and zone out to the task at hand~
What are your favourite materials to work with? really like working with soft baby yarn and lace~
What is your favourite item that you sell? I make earrings out of soft baby yarn and I think they’re just so cute and they’re so soft to touch!
What is the most popular item that you sell? My most popular items seem to be my enamel pins and stickers.
