Meet Nissa Joy. She makes Jewelry. And I'm giving some away! (closed)



Hi everybody! I have something really exciting planned for you guys today.

Do you know Joy? She just opened a new Etsy shop, called Nissa Joy Jewelry.

Life in the Pitts

And it's fantastic.

In fact, I bought this necklace from her a few months ago, to give to my Mother in Law.

Life in the Pitts

(It's called the Mother's Nest, and I earned some major brownie points for that one!)

My little sister Chantel recently bought a jewelry kit from Joy's shop. Chantel had never made jewelry before, and she emailed Joy with a bunch of questions.

Joy was so nice and supportive! She went out of her way to help Chantel. Now my sister is making jewelry like crazy.

I was so impressed with this, I contacted Joy and asked her if I could feature her on my blog.

I think kindness like this deserves recognition :)

I asked Joy to tell us a little bit about herself.


Life in the Pitts

I am a stay at home mom of two little children (a boy and a girl). life is expensive and frustrating a lot of times. I found out that mommies needs and wants tend to come last :)

I couldn't afford most of the jewelry out there and what I could afford tended to break or get lost. my husband gave me the idea to make my own, that way I could make exactly what I wanted, cut the cost down and by learning the new craft I would be able to fix my own jewelry.


Life in the Pitts

I took his advice and a couple of years later decided it would be nice to be able to offer anyone a piece of jewelry they really wanted at an affordable price with a guarantee.


If it breaks simply send it back to me and I will fix it.

I also found that a lot of other women were interested in learning to make their own jewelry as well. So after a lot of prodding from my sister Disney, who runs her blog Ruffles And Stuff, I started a blog that shows how to make some of the pieces of jewelry in my shop.

After such a large response I also decided to start carying some kits with the exact pieces you need to make the pieces shown on my blog.

Life in the Pitts


Jewelry making can get expensive and there were many times I had to buy alot of extra pieces I didn't need just to get the pieces I did need to make one piece of jewelry.

I've tried to make it as easy and hassle free as I can because it's a wonderful craft and anyone can do it! I just love to sit and play around with all the colors and styles and create something just perfect for what I have to wear.
I asked Joy if she would like to give away one of her beautiful necklaces. And guess what??

She said yes!

Life in the Pitts


One of you will win this awesome necklace, made by Joy!
