Cloud Wave Jewelry and with our Q & A!
Cloud Wave Jewelry - Yunbo Xu, Owner
MSM - How long have you been in business?
CWJ - In 2007 I visited a friend in China; we were very close friends when we were in high school. When I saw the jewelry she made, I fell in love with it making it right away. I bought a few books, some parts...and started to practice. Since then I never stopped making it, I spent most my spare time with this hobby.
MSM - What made you start your business / why is it your passion?
CWJ - This hobby has brought me a lot of happiness. Once I saw someone wearing the jewelry I made, I felt so good. I think my jewelry can bring people beauty, confidence and make them feel good. It encourages me to continue this business.
MSM - Do you have family that works / supports you in your business?
CWJ - Yes! My husband helps me to settle the show. He created and made some display boards which make the show arrangements much easier. My two daughters in law help me to find new beads and other parts and give me their opinions with my new designs.
MSM - When have the Market closes for the season, how will you spend your Saturdays?
CWJ - I may find more shows in other places. And I will take the time to look around and learn the new trends and style of jewelry. In fact, the best part of my interest is to customize jewelry for a dress and special events. I am willing to meet somebody at home who needs my help.
MSM - What makes your business unique?
CWJ - I took all opportunities to find out the different designs, I was shopping, reading magazines, watching TV, traveling, even in the doctor's waiting room. I am always trying to make the jewelry, which is not the same as in Walt Mart, Khols, Macy's. I found my beads worldwide: Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, China, Japan... When I custom the jewelry for a special person, I may consider her career, personality, environment she works... These make my designs unique
