These gorgeous earrings took a lot of work, real tourmaline and are $75 at FizzCandy, designed by Payton Bartos
Mila and Payton Bartos are the shop owners of FizzCandy Jewelry on Etsy.  Payton is a 14 year old middle school student and the brainchild behind FizzCandy. Payton has always been interested in art and design and she loved creating beaded jewelry to give to her friends.

Mila is her mom and she explains,  "As Payton's skill developed, it seemed like the next step to turn it into a real business. She has worked hard at it and her business has grown."

This is my favorite! Gorgeous teardrop bracelet is so colorful $50 at FizzCandy inspired by Mali Wedding


As for how she creates and when? Mila says, "Her supplies are relegated to a window seat in our TV room and that is where she creates her jewelry. She tries to spend a little time every day working on her store and I help her. She loves that people want to buy things that she makes. She is learning a lot about being a business owner and all of the work that it takes to do it well. She is developing valuable skills that she will take with her and I hope that she continues to enjoy her craft."

This may very well be one of Etsy's younger designer success stories. The jewelry is gorgeous and designs are upscale. I see Payton and Mila going places.
