Who doesn't love Scrabble? - Awkward Designs Giveaway! CLOSED

Meet Kira, owner of the Etsy shop Awkward Designs. Kira uses Scrabble tiles to craft eco-friendly pendants, keychains, magnets, and more!

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m Kira and I’m a Californian hippie mom.  Proud mother of three little girls, wife of an avid gamer and proud member of the Seneca Nation of Indians; I enjoy the simpler things in life.  Being Native American I think I am drawn to working and creating with my hands.  Since my weaving and bead work stills are lacking, I decided to stick to drawing and making jewelry. 

Tell me a little bit about your shop:
A friend introduced me to and Awkward Designs was born.  I started by selling a random variety of the things that I had already made.  Soon I found myself gravitating towards creating more with Scrabble tiles.  No additives, no frills just a good old scrabble tile.  Deciding to keep the original look and feel just felt right.  It is this natural feel that I think really draws people in.  Expanding from just pendants we now offer earrings, hair clips and fun magnets.

What is your favorite item that you make?
I don’t have a favorite item because I wont sell anything I don't love.  I do enjoying putting together bulk orders for families and co-workers.  The first bulk order I received was for my holiday earrings from my daughter’s school teacher.  For the last few weeks before holiday break I was seeing my earrings on all the staff.  I recently put together another bulk order of pendants for a teacher here in California; we worked together to insure that she got all the letters she needed.  Knowing that someone enjoys my work enough to share it with their friends and family really makes me smile. I offer an inside look at items that are still in progress such as coasters, bracelets and pins.  You can view the behind the scenes status on new items coming soon at my website!

And I am in love with the brand new state charms! A little heart or star to mark your hometown makes one a wonderful personalized gift.
