Congrats to the Treasury Challenge Winner- AllegraGraceDesigns




Congratulations to Allegra Grace Designs, Team Undiscovered's first treasury challenge winner.

I asked Jenifer, shop owner of Allegra Grace Designs, to tell me a little bit about herself and her new Etsy shop.

'I started making some of my own [jewelry] when I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in stores...I basically think of an interesting design, or fall in love with some beads in a store and try to design something around them.

I love [working with] sterling silver, copper, mixed metals, and natural gemstones. I try to use leather and silk creatively, which hopefully helps me stand out. My pieces combine a rustic, southwestern feel with a refined sensibility.'


When something calls for a little extra sparkle, Jenifer will use glass beads for a more formal or vintage look. In the future, she wants to learn how to work with precious metal clay, but that will have to wait for now. Jenifer's jewelry design process is very time consuming, it has been difficult learning the ins and outs of managing an online business.

Apart from Etsy, Jenifer works full time for a non-profit organization serving young children and their families in the San Francisco Bay area. She has two delightful little girls, ages 6 and 2, who keep her very, very busy! The name of her shop combines her daughters' middle names (Allegra and Grace).

Pounce on Allegra Grace Design's shop, give Jenifer her first Etsy sale!

See the wining treasury
