This week’s shop feature is called Some Kind of Pretty by Catheryn Dallenbach. She makes handmade jewelry from earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and so much more. I love the pumpkin earrings, those are pretty cute and just right in season too 🙂 Read below to get to know more about her and her shop 🙂
1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop
-The name of my shop was by accident. The name I originally had in mind
was already taken on Etsy. So I just played around with words until I
got Some Kind of Pretty! I love it! It also reminds me of a
song…Some Kind of Wonderful.
2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
-I dabble in a few styles, but I was always tend to make pieces that are
everyday wearable. My pieces also have a bit of humor to them. I try
to maintain a sense of femininity and simplicity in each piece, while
also making it bright and fun.
3. What is your favorite item at the store and why?
Right now I am obsessed with my custom threaded bangles. I haven’t made
any for myself yet, but I love how bright and happy they are!
4. What inspires create your products?
I get inspired from almost anything really. Books, movies, and even
video games. I also look to different fashion trends and how I can
incorporate them in my jewelry without losing my look.
5. Where can we find you?
I’m on Twitter, Facebook, Blogpost, and here on Etsy! Everything can be found on flavors.me/SomeKindofPretty.

7. What advice can you give for other sellers out there for their shop?
Patience, It took me awhile to get steady views, let alone sales! Also, your pictures need to be top notch!
Now some fun facts about you
8. What is your Favorite Food?
hhhmmm…Probably Reese’s. Everyone in my family knows that is the key to my heart.
9. Describe us one positive event in your life in your life that you
felt was a miracle to you or that you knew the Universe was there
watching over you.
Probably my wedding. I lost 3 of my 4 grandparents a few years ago.
The day of my wedding I did feel a little tense and nervous, but as soon
as they opened the doors and my dad and I walked down the aisle…I
just felt so happy. I knew my grandparents were watching over me.
There was plenty of mis-haps the whole day, but I just remained
blissfully unaware and totally happy. 🙂
10. What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Tough choice between the mountains and the beach! Both have been
vacation spots for my family and I. The beach I can only handle for a
couple of days, but I could spend a couple weeks in the mountains (If I
had Internet of course.).
11. Anything else you like to share about you?
Yes! I have a large family that I love! My immediate family is made up
of my parents, three sisters, two brothers, two siblings in law, six
nephews and two nieces! By the way, one of my sisters is also my twin!
I have been blessed in my life to be constantly surrounded by a family
who loves and supports me. Whether is be my family or my new family
through marriage, I have always been surrounded by a great supportive
network. I am always so thankful for this. 🙂
