The LightShine Designs Story:
Jewelry, Photography and Graphic Design
as told by Rebecca Lee Mincey, owner
I started making jewelry in November of 2011. It started with wire wrapping stones that I had which were raw from my trips mining in upstate North Carolina.
Soon after selling a few pendants, I branched on to buy charms, crystals, glass, and other jewelry findings to create jewelry.
I started up my FB Business page in late 2011. And then opened my Etsy shop in February of 2012.
I came up with the LightShine Designs name one night lying in bed. I had been trying to decide the name for a few weeks and randomly the children's song "this little light of mine." Popped into my head, and it was born. Sounded catchy and bright so it stuck !! My business motto is..
"Not everyday shines, but that doesn't mean you can't shine everyday."
I have been doing photography since I was 21. I am self taught, and mostly deal in natural and fine art prints.
I recently started doing portraiture for people in my local area. I strive to be one of a kind, unique, versatile, and affordable.
I also offer various forms of graphic art using my own prints or files sent to me by clients.
I aim to satisfy every customer/client I have. Custom orders are done to client specifications, and I welcome all input in order to create the pieces they envision. I work with authors to recreate pieces featured in their books or to make pieces which symbolize what their books mean to them. I welcome custom orders of all types from necklaces, charm bracelets, earrings, bookmarks, you name it.
Rebecca has created a site geared towards combining great books with her graphic designs and jewelry making. This offers additional exposure for authors and amazing giveaways for readers with LightReads.
Currently, she features one author a month. Check out the May Author, Book, and Giveaway on LightReads.
