About Freia Inguz

Hello! *waves* thank you for stopping by. I'm Freia, welcome to my Shiny Patreon. I do hope you'll stay and hang out for a while. But first...

Who am I?

Well, I don't know, that's not such an easy question to answer, how much time do you have? (how much space do I have?)

Simplest answer...

Hi, again *waves* My name is Freia Inguz. I live in the Pacific Northwest, at the foot of the Cascade mountains in the high desert. I'm a bookkeeping/project managing/office manager by day, who makes shiny things by night. Shiny jewelry things. Making shiny jewelry things is my passion.

What brought me to Patreon?

Honestly...I'm 47 years old, with a birthday coming up quick, and I want to be able to spend less time dealing with someone else's office work, and more time pursuing my passion, making my art, and moving towards my own dreams.

My ultimate shiny goal is to make Freia Inguz Artisan Jewelry a viable, brick and mortar business.

*dreams* It's a little store. A cozy little store with jewelry, beads, crystals and books and such, that my daughter and I run together. Daughter's paintings hang on the walls, and her pottery is displayed throughout. One of those little stores with character, and a homey feel, that you want to go to and hang out in, and...*dreamy sigh*

So far, my shiny start up efforts have resulted in my website, 2 Etsy shops (my jewelry Etsy and my gemstone bead Etsy), and after several big mistakes with bad shop owners (booooo), I'm finally in a wonderful shop here locally called Cascade Jewelers (YAAAAAY!).

And now, I have a Patreon.

What is a Patreon?

Frankly...I'm new here too, so I'm not 100% sure yet all the great things this Patreon thing is, or can do. My understanding is, basically, a Patreon is a place where people can come to help support artists they like, so they can be more successful and in turn, make more art. Patrons and artists can interact more closely, in a more exclusive setting, than they can with the bombardment that is social media. There are different 'rewards' levels of patronage, which are listed off to the side. The different levels grant different access, and offer different goodies, etc as thanks for your patronage. 

Patrons can choose support levels for as little as $1 per month, up to...as much as you wish to contribute, invest, or donate. And you can change your patronage, up or down, or cancel completely, at any time. It's all awesomely flexible.

Every $1 pledge, all the way up to the highest level, is invaluable to me. Every cent is going to help launch my shinies to new levels and I'm so very grateful for each and every one. 

What do you plan to post in the Shiny Patreon?

And, again...I...don't know for sure. A lot of things. Jewelry related things, yes, but I also do landscape photography, art coloring, paper crafting, art journaling, homemade lotions and beauty projects, and, and, and...so many things. My shiny muse is always running off in all kinds of different directions. And I want to post about it all. I also want to know what my patrons want to see posted. I value your insight and ideas. I want to make a place that's up close and personal, fun to come to, hang out, learn things, discuss things, play games, and win shiny things.

How often do you plan to post in the Shiny Patreon?

Simply put, as often as possible. I'm always busy creating one thing or another, and quite often...I really want to share what's going on with it. 

I think of all of this as a journey. It's going to be so great!! Won't you join me?

To my shiny patrons that decide to journey with me...thank you thank you! :D
