Meet Sweet Freedom Designs

I would like to introduce everyone to Lesley of Sweet Freedom Designs, a fellow Etsy member, and a member of my Dogs and Art group on flickr. Lesley not only is the proud owner of Bailey, her Golden Retriever, she also creates beautiful jewelry. Her Bailey stories are just as creative as her jewels. If you would like to see some lovely jewelry stop by her Etsy shop or her website Sweet Freedom Designs. If you want to visit a great blog about the goings on of Bailey the Golden Retriever, I urge you to read Bailey's Blog, it is very entertaining to see things from Bailey's point of view. I hope you'll take a moment to read the interview and get to know Lesley, her dog, Bailey and her wonderful creations.

1) Tell us your name, how many dogs you have, the name of your dog and how old your dog is? My name is Lesley. I have one dog Bailey, who will be 9 on May 1st.

2) What breed of dog do you have? Golden Retriever

3) How long have you had your dog/s and how did they come to be your dog? Since he was 6 weeks old. After my first golden retriever died at age 14 from cancer, I knew I wanted another Golden, and found Bailey at a breeder in a nearby town. He has hair the same color as mine, and was very verbal, and still is – he talks all the time!

4) Do you find that you've come to favor a certain breed of dog and if so, what are their unique characteristics that you've found to be so wonderful? I love all dogs, and grew up having one or more dogs. I love Goldens the best, though – they are smart, and cuddly, and lovey, and gorgeous!

5) Any favorite stories you'd like to share with us about about your dog? I have a million Bailey stories, stop by my blog to read them: Bailey the Golden Retriever blog

6) Are there any other pets in the home other than dogs? Not on purpose.

7) What kind of art do you create? Jewelry – beaded, bead woven, wire-wrapped, and fused glass.

8) Do you create or make anything other type of art/craft? I crochet afghans and I cross-stitch wall hangings and blankets.

9) If you sell your artwork, where can we find your pieces for sale? I sell at a couple of boutiques in my local area and also my Etsy Shop, Sweet Freedom Designs and my website Sweet Freedom Designs.
