sponsor highlight + giveaway: oh so antsy



---

You might remember Oh So Antsy jewelry from the Handmade Holidays Gift Guide! I'm excited to have Jessica's shop back as a sponsor for January and get to brag about her work a little bit more!

I feel like everyone has a deep connection with their state. As a Texan living in Colorado, no matter where I live in the future, there will always be a special place in my heart for those two states. I also love to show my Texas pride with the ever popular state of Texas shape around our home. Jessica makes custom state necklace and places the heart where YOUR heart desires! I can imagine them layered with other beaded necklaces for a fun & eclectic look.

I'd love to rock one of these necklaces around my neck to keep Texas close to my heart ;)

Here is a little bit from Jessica about Oh So Antsy:
Nearly one year ago, my little handmade business began. A friend had the idea for a few of us girls to put together a craft booth at an upcoming event downtown and suggested I make some knitted items. I knew in the few short months before the event, I would only end up with 3 or 4 things to sell. Then it occurred to me to use my new silver jewelry making skills to create a few pieces for the show!

I worked very hard in the following months cutting and hammering away in my make-shift  living room studio (where all of my work is still done), as well as designing and making business cards, and working so hard at getting an online shop opened by the end of January, my birthday month. So on January 31st, just in the nick of time, I officially opened my shop. The craft show was relatively unsuccessful, but it really gave me the push I needed to get my small business going. The jewelry I was making changed quite a bit, from the beginning, when I started getting a lot of custom requests for state and country shaped necklaces. I recently started adding tiny versions of the states and countries which are SO cute and fun to make. I have a few new things planned in the near future and I can’t wait to share!

I am so surprised at how far I've come in one year. My business has grown more than I could have imagined in a short time, and I'm so thrilled and thankful for all the support I've received and connections I’ve made.
