Saturday Artisan: Cloud Nine Designz

Happy Saturday Morning! Meet Mandee, artist and owner of Cloud Nine Designz. Beautiful jewelries, and a variety of them that you can find. Love it!

Tell us a bit about yourself and what arts/ crafts that you make?

My name is Mandee and I am 30. I love the art world. I started writing short stories and poems when I was younger. I had a poem published. I now paint and make jewelry.

Which part of creation process that you like to do the most?
I like looking at beads and having ideas pop up in my head. The light bulb going off is amazing. But really I just want to make things that people love. I feel that people should be told everyday they are loved. I want you to be able to wear my items and feel special. I want someone to be able to give a gift to someone to make someone's day.

Could you share on how your organize your products, we all can use a little tips here and there in this department?
Most of my supplies are kept in bins. All separated by color/type.

What is your best seller?
My best seller is button bracelets for kids sports teams/sorority's. Also the dandelion wish earrings and my angel items.

How does your day go in general?
I wake up and go to the gym. Work on items, making them. Relisting, working on custom orders. Go to work 1 to midnight. Come home and work on orders a little more. Write to clear my head and sleep.

What is your goal for 2011? And are you on the right track?
I want to learn how to organize all the legal and banking items. Anyone willing to teach me?

Any advice for others running their on-line shop?
Don't let anyone tell you you cannot succeed.

Saving money is important; tell us one thing that you do to save money?
I don't spend money on myself.

Anything else you'd like to share?
A profit of my items goes to charity. I love giving back.

Stay-tuned for tomorrow's giveaway!


  1. Thanks so much Nat! Your the best. Love u.

  2. I love your shop. I would like to see more pendants as I do not wear ear rings or bracelets much.

  3. I would like to see other necklaces made with memory wire with different colored bead such as blue or red. I don't see necklaces made with memory wire very often and I like the look.

  6. Wow. I'm all around impressed - with Mandee as well as her jewelry creations! I love all of the Pearl Cluster necklaces - and would like to see more bead work: I think my most favorite items (currently) in Mandee's Cloud Nine Designz Etsy shop are the Fall Harvest Necklace and Bracelet. Thanks!

  7. You sound like a impressive creative young woman. May you be blessed in your artistic pursuits! BTW I love the camera necklace. Great job.

  8. You have a beautiful shop and I'm sure it's got lots of great potential there! I'm a great fan of your cluster necklace, you've done a great job creating it! I wish you good luck!
