Introduction


Hi, my name is Amy! I have been married for 8.5 years to a wonderful man and we have two beautiful children aged 4.5 and almost 2.


I’ve been making jewelry since late 2003, making beaded jewelry and it’s evolved in the past few years to stamped jewelry. Since I’ve started doing the stamped jewelry the business has really taken off. I was recently on a local daily television show called IndyStyle and you can see the video on my website here (http://www.amycornwell.com/store/cart.php?m=content&page=11)

How did you get your start on Etsy?

I don’t even remember how I found Etsy, but when I saw it I knew it couldn’t hurt to try. The fees were so low that I figured if I didn’t sell a thing I wouldn’t be out much. Thankfully I didn’t have to worry about that!

What does a typical day look like for you?

A typical day consists of getting up at 6am, getting myself and my kids ready. Then I take them to the babysitter while I go to work at our church as the Sr. Pastor’s Assistant. I get off at 5pm (M-Th), pick up the kids and do dinner/bath/bedtime. After bedtime I work on orders until they are done which is usually by 10:30 or 11:00 pm. I don’t do orders every day, but usually every other day.

If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?

Oh wow, that’s a hard one. If it were just one day and anywhere, I’d probably say a day in Fiji or somewhere equally as beautiful by the beach.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

My favorite verse since I was in High School is:

2 Corinthians 4:16
“So we do not lose heart
Though our outer self is wasting away,
our inner self is being renewed day by day.”


What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?










I have two favorite items from my shop right now and both are pretty new to the shop. The first is the Family Tree: Circle of Love necklace which comes with an extra long 30" chain.

The second favorite is my Momma Bird necklace that is super cute and unique. I love it because birds are so popular right now.
