Tea and a Chat: Rachel from Balanced

Hello, everyone!  This weeks 'Tea and a Chat With' interviewee is Rachel from Balanced.  Rachel acts as the Treasury Curator for our lovely group.  She started out in Northern California but came to where all the cool kids are and is now living in Dublin.  Anyhoo, here we go with the questions!  

Tell us a bit about what you do? 
I am a jewellery artist and I am "treasury curator" for the team! 

If you weren’t a crafty type, what would you be doing? 

Probably wallowing in self pity somewhere.  I don't know, I can't even imagine it. 

Give us some of your favourite designers/fashion peeps:

I don't actually follow fashion/cothing design that much.  As for jewellery designers, I'm a big fan of; and many, many others!

Any amazing blogs that you’d like to share?
There are many! is invaluable! 

What are your top 5 films of all time? 

Oh dear, I watch a lot of films, usually whilst beading, but of ALL TIME would be Labyrinth, Earthlings, The Neverending Story, Funny Games, Switchblade Romance.  Yeah. 

What was your mother always right about? 

That one day I would regret arguing with my sisters.  I do.

Lastly some linky goodness, where can we find you? Oooh, links!


That's it for this Saturday, over and out!
