Sweet Peek of the Week: Studio Blake Interview & Giveaway

In this week's sweet peek we are stepping into a world of "all things cute" where old-school bracelets are given a modern twist to become the perfect staple accessory for any wardrobe.


Caroline of Studio Blake creates these little charmers with the mindset that they will become the perfect wardrobe addition for any occasion.  Let us get to know the mind and heart behind the lovely Caroline and her shop Studio Blake.


Hi Caroline!  Could you share a little more abut yourself and Studio Blake?

"Hi! I'm Caroline, I'm 20 years old, and my shop is called Studio Blake. I've always been creative - anyone who knows me can tell you I am constantly doing DIYs, searching blogs or pinterest for inspiration, and generally doing crafty things! I'm studying business at university, and figured mixing my love for all things art, DIY, and design with my interest in business was the perfect way to combine all of my talents and interests. Studio Blake takes old-school camp-style bracelets and gives them an elegant and modern twist, making them the perfect accessory for all occasions!"

Where have your main inspirations stemmed from?

"I grew up on the East Coast of Canada in the province of Newfoundland, and my childhood there has been a major source of inspiration throughout my life. The amount of creativity there is so amazing - from art, to plays, to architecture - it's hard not to be inspired by living there. One thing about Newfoundland that has shown up in my shop is the love of colour. Houses in Newfoundland are known for their bright, rainbow-range of colours, and I've tried to incorporate as many beautiful colours as possible into my bracelets. I think my upbringing there even influenced the names of some of my bracelets subconsciously - perhaps "The Wave" got it's name from the Atlantic!"


Sounds wonderful!  Locating inspiration is obviously not an issue for you, but have there been any obstacles you've faced in the creating of Studio Blake?

"I think the hardest part has really just been finding the time to make my bracelets! They are quite time-consuming to make, and as a student (especially during the summer) I'm always off somewhere, along with an internship I'm doing at a non-profit organization."

Time is always the biggest challenge.  How are you overcoming this and finding the time?

"I've gotten quite good at scheduling and dedicating time to my business. I really do enjoy making the bracelets, and I've been able to find the perfect balance between running my business, doing my internship, and enjoying the summer!"


I am so glad you were able to schedule us in today.  Any words of advice before you go?

"I would say you need to find a niche for your business - something that sets you apart from the others. For me, besides the unique nature of my products, I enjoy graphic design and photography, so I take the time to add that extra visually appealing touch to my shop and social media platforms. Above all else, if you're passionate about what you're doing, it will really show in all aspects of your business, and ultimately (I believe) lead to greater success!"


Couldn't agree more!  Thank you so much Caroline for talking with us today.  I am so excited to share your creations with one lucky reader.
