This week’s Featured Cutie Pie is Woollyton! I discovered this website one rainy Sunday morning when I was e-shopping around for a cupcake necklace. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to interview the lovely and extremely talented woman behind the magic!
Her work is the perfect mix of adorable, colorful, and yummy. Plus everything has kawaii eyes! I want to eat all her jewelry… and hug it… I am so torn!
Name and/or moniker: Tawnie
Occupation: Woollyton President, Founder, CEO lol
Where you are from? St. Louis, Missouri
Websites: ShopWoollyton.com, Facebook.com/Woollyton, Facebook.com/Woollytonllc
Twitter Handle: don’t use twitter (But secretly she does!) @Woollyton
What you do in the cute industry and when did you first start? (She runs an online jewelry store) I honestly don’t remember when exactly I started Woollyton, I believe it was sometime back in 2009.
So… where did you get the idea for the name Woollyton? I got the name idea from a cat I used to have named Huskwoolly. lol
What are your charms made of? Most of our charms are handmade from polymer clay, liquid clay, and glitter. The necklace chains are stainless steel.
How are the charms made? Lots of time is spent sculpting each charm by hand.
Do you do any other cute things besides your store? ehh…not really. I’m a pretty boring person lol
Did any crafters, designers or cute people inspire you to start your cute designing? My mom, and brother inspired me. My mom has always been crafty. She used to sew clothes for me when I was younger, and I remember one year she made this adorable Rainbow Brite costume for me for Halloween. My brother Jarett was always drawing, which inspired me to draw, which then turned into a love of all artsy and crafty things. I am also inspired by cute brands like Sanrio and TokiDoki.
What are your favorite cute and adorable characters? I love Rainbow Brite and Gumby
What else gives you cute inspiration? my adorable cat Wizzy
Where do you shop or buy cute things? anywhere that carries cute items

The secret dirty truth behind this post is, I couldn’t even finish writing it before I just HAD to buy something. Teddy bears are my new obsesh.
