TBO- ByBeep is a unique name, where did you get the name from?
EH-Beep is a nickname my family gave me. It was given to me because I would constantly make outlandish noises as a child.
TBO-How did you get your start making your jewelry pieces? Do you have any formal training or are you just amazingly creative?!
EH-Unlike my artwork, jewelry-making was not something I planned for- it was a path that reeled me in during the beginning steps of my journey. However, I am happy that it found me.I have no formal training, so creating jewelry is like solving a puzzle for me- I have to figure out where all the pieces fit in order to make my vision appear. Inventing my own process is fascinating to me.
TBO-Tell me about yourself, your name, where are you from?
EH-My name is Emily Haworth and I currently reside in Chicago, Illinois. However, I was born and raised in the hill country of Texas. I spend the majority of my time creating, and I want to explore the world.
TBO-Obviously creating beautiful, and whimsical pieces is a hobby, but do you have any other hobbies or creative outlets?
EH-Well, I don't have too many artistic hobbies because art is what I do for a living. Besides being a jewelry-maker, I am a Freelance Illustrator. I work on art all day, and I am always trying out new things in order to
TBO-Where does your inspiration come from? I feel like your pieces are taken from scenes in a mind full of imagination.
EH-I do get inspired by many things, but when it comes to my work, I like to look within myself for inspiration. My work stems from personal experiences that anyone can relate to.
TBO-What are your goals with ByBeep, and where do you see your store hopefully in the future?
EH-I have an infinite amount of directions I want to explore when it comes to my work, so it is hard to predict the specific road I will take. I like the fact I can grow my work through many different outlets.
"Today, jewelry-making and I are pretty content and have many more ideas we plan to explore. Sure, we have our disagreements, but when something is worth it to you, the ground is only a short fall away and the sky goes on forever." -Emily Haworth, "Etsy Blog"
