Jet of the Day - Satin Doll

Three Things You Don't Know About Satin Doll & Co.
Yes, we have our Etsy Profiles to give the buyers and sellers a little in depth information on the owner of an Etsy shop. But they do not go very in-depth, so, here are 3 things you don't know about the owner of Satin Doll & Co.



#1    My name: is Gaetana Parris. For some reason I've decided to leave my name off my profile and focus mainly on my background and the jewelry. The name Gaetana originates from Italy. My mother named me after a close friend of hers who was named Gaetana. I was lied to as a child and told Gaetana meant princess, (which is so wrong.) It actually comes from a city, Gaeta, in southern Italy.

 #2    I taught myself to make jewelry. One day I just decided to make jewelry and my sister bought me a book that I barely skimmed through. I bought all the necessary supplies and started with earrings. I started selling earring at a vendor location in Brooklyn and they were a huge hit. From there I extended my jewelry making skills to bracelets and necklaces.


#3    I am from West Indian descent, which I think is the reason why I don't shy away from color!  If you look at my shop, I have every color of the rainbow and maybe some that aren't included.

There are so many different facets of me,  but these are the top three that I wanted to share.
Thank you so much for reading. Now it is your turn to tell us three things we do not know about you!

Your work is amazing Gaetana, and I'm lucky enough to have 3 pairs of your fabulous SatinDollCo earrings - think I'd already guessed you loved color! Oh, and of course you ARE a princess :)
