JM: Donna, when did your interest in creating jewelry start?

DONNA : I started creating jewelry for myself about 10 years ago and when Olivia was born I decided I wanted to try making jewelry for her.

JM:How did you learn?

DONNA :I taught myself through different beading magazines and just experimenting.

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay and do you sell anywhere else besides eBay?

DONNA :I started selling my jewelry on ebay just about 3 years ago. I just opened my website in January http://www.mypixiedustcreations.com

JM: Do you remember the first item you sold on eBay?

DONNA :It was a pink and black lampwork bracelet and I think it sold for 8.00.

JM: Where did come up with your name?

DONNA : I've always been in love with fairy's and pixies and my husband Richard had nicknamed our daughter Olivia his little pixie.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

DONNA : I belong to Boutique Icing, a jewelry group. Icing is a bunch of wonderfully talented ladies of whom i'm very proud to create with.

JM: What are your favorite materials to work with?

DONNA : I would have to say handmade lampwork beads. Glass is so very interesting to me.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

DONNA : I would love to learn how to make lampwork beads. The possibilities seem to be endless when working with glass.

JM: Can you tell us about your first job? How much did you earn?

DONNA : My first job was at Burger King, I think I made $4.50 a hour. I hated wearing those ugly visors.

DONNA :Always go after your dreams!

Donna - I love your designs; you have such a great command of color! I think we'd get along well as I love the outdoors and reading in addition to beading. ;) Congrats on the feature!
