Small Business Spotlight – AK Twin Creations
Describe your business
Hello, My name is Briana Smith I am a small business owner. My etsy shop is AK Twin Creations. A few years ago, I started making hemp jewelry and adventured out into making jewelry with copper wire and natural stones. Everyone seemed to love my work so I started my own Etsy shop. I have attended a few vendor events where I have sold items in Coeur D’Alene. I didn’t get serious about my business until this last summer so I am still figuring a few things out. I try to base my pieces off of natural elements and a lot of it was inspired by the beautiful nature that surrounded me in Alaska. I just moved to spokane in early September. I am an Alaskan Native who has a twin sister that also creates her own art that I feature on my shop.
What is the most important piece of your business?
I believe the most important piece of my business is due to the advertisement opportunities through social media. I make most of my sales through posts and can easily send them an invoice to their emails.
Give some recommendations to moms from your perspective:
I recommend to any mom, who wants to start a work from home business, is to find a hobby you love and put enough time into it to make it successful.
How can people start this same journey?
I have helped several other local artists start this journey. I believe that all it takes to start a journey like mine is to believe in yourself and take the opportunity.
