HAWN, New and Featured Holiday Artisan, Designs Jewelry Organically; Beginning Each Piece Without a
Jenn Knopf of HAWN started designing jewelry and couldn't stop - that's when she knew her hobby had become her business - her passion lead to her life's work!
FF: Why did you begin your handmade journey?
H: I started making jewelry as a hobby. I have always been a creative person so making jewelry seemed like something I would enjoy. Once I started I could not stop, it just seemed like a natural fit. I love that my hobby turned into something that I am truly passionate about and that I was able to turn it into a business.
FF: What lead you to your current line of goods?
H: I never really have a plan for my designs, they usually just come to me organically. I love to pick out stones and other materials that really catch my eye, lay everything out on my work bench, and just start putting things together.
FF: What materials do you work with & why?
H: Lately I have been really into using raw stones and crystals in my designs, I just love the way the different textures and colors of the stones look together. I also really love that each stone is different and each of my pieces will be slightly different and unique for that reason.
FF: What excites you for the future?
H: I am just excited to grow as a brand and to see how far HAWN can go. HAWN is still a newer business so I know that there is so much more to come for me.
FF: Any advice for makers and biz entrepreneurs new to our creative community?
H: Don't be afraid to jump in and follow your dream, it's worth it!
