Welcome back to my Biz Kids series! I haven’t done them in a while, but this one has been in the works for a couple months. 🙂 I’d love for my readers to welcome Miss Tessa from Tessa’s Treasure Shop to Busy Being Blessed! She’s a beautiful, talented girl who has an awesome mama (my friend Mindy), a great dad, and two beautiful little sisters.

Meet TessaHi, Tessa! I am so glad to have you with me here today. I have been a fan of your work for quite a while now. You are one talented little lady!

J – What gave you the idea to start making jewelry?

T – well one year i got a jewelry kit and made a pair of earrings and i liked them so i decided to try to make more jewelry and it just kinda took off from there

🙂 J – How much time does it take to make one bracelet or necklace?

T – it depends on how big or small it is maybe 10 minutes

J – How long have you been making jewelry? 🙂

T – since around january 2013 i think

J – And how long have you been selling it?

T – i cant remember

J – LOL. I know that feeling! When did you put up your facebook page?

T – around the time i started selling jewelry

J – What do jewelry supplies typically cost, and how much of them do you typically use for one project?

T – sometimes one strand of a kind of beads can cost 12$ or more and probubly around 30

J – How long does your jewelry last? Is it sturdy? I have made a few pieces that fall apart when my boys get a hold of them.

T – pretty sturdy unless i use the wrong kind of crimp beads witch hold the jewelry to the clasps

J – Did you come up with your business name, or did your mom come up with it?

T – i did

J – Love it! How much time do you spend on making jewelry each day?

T – it depends

J – Okay, now these next couple questions are from my son, Jeremiah (ten years old):

Is your jewelry expensive?

T – no we try to keep it inexpensive

J –
Have you ever wanted to keep one of your creations made for someone else all for yourself?

T – yes

J –
Is it tiring to make them? Does it hurt your hands? How many can you make in one sitting before you get too tired?

T – i can make 4 or 5 when i feel creative

J – Josiah (9) wonders if you have any pearl beads, because he thinks that would make a beautiful necklace. 🙂

T – i do

J – Jamin (7) had to get in on the action and wonders if you have any jewels. 🙂

T – yes

J – (Ms. Jenn again!) What do you think the next step for your jewelry-making business will be?

T – i want to sell jewelry at the crasy water festaval in town

J – That sounds fun! Hope it works out well for you. I notice you have an etsy site as well as your facebook page. That’s a great idea. Do you plan on opening a website as well, at least as a re-direct to your etsy page?

T – i will think about makeing a website

J – I see many lovely things in your etsy shop. Is it difficult to add things to it, or do you just forget about adding things to it?

T – i just forget sometimes

🙂 J – It is very obvious that you are an artistic little girl. I have seen that you love to draw. Have you considered branching out to other art mediums? I could see some of your art pages scanned and put onto cards, t-shirts, and other things, at someplace like Zazzle.

T – i will look into it

J – Is there anything you’d like to tell other kids who might want to start a business at home?

T – try hard and you can do it

J – Thanks. 🙂 Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?

T – i like to ride horses

J – Fun! Can you leave us with a little something else about yourself that’s not business-related? How old are you? And Jeremiah wants to know if you have any animals. 🙂

T – i am 10 years old and have 3 dogs and 1 cat and 7 fish

J – He is 10 as well, so Biz Kids is really inspiring to him. 🙂 He wants you to know we have two cats right now, too. 😉

Thank you so much for visiting with us, Tessa! I enjoyed having you stop by. I wish you continued success in your biz. 🙂
And thank you to all the visitors who came by to check out Tessa’s interview and products!

JennAbout Jenn: I’m a Christian wife to an amazing man (since 1998) and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (born in 2004, 2005, 2007, & 2009). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations, and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos, and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to eat organic and avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer/Editor page) (Fan page), Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.

    Thank you so very much for your nice feature on Tessa. I am a bit biased as I am her grandmother, but I know how hard she works at making her jewelry and how lovely it is. I know others who have worn her jewelry and have received many compliments on it. I think my favorite piece of jewelry in her Etsy store is her turquoise and aqua necklace.

    It is so nice to see such a sweet young girl pursue what makes her happy! I’ll also add that she is quite good at making jewelry! Good job Tessa and God bless you sweet child!
