Meet the Artist:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Hi, I’m Jacquetta aka Que! I’m from SC and I currently live in Augusta, Ga (I’m a palmetto peach). I’m a scientist by education but my joy and passion are making ear candy, more commonly known, as earrings.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
My entire process is in my home where I am able to use a combination of laser cutting, polymer clay, wood, acrylic, glitter, paint and resin to create the most unique piece of art for your ear.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
When I was young, my grandma always told me that you were not dressed until you have on your earrings. She made sure that earrings were always on our ears and when I got older it never let that go. I make it my personal goal to complete that outfit, add new life to that vintage sweater, and add a little razzle dazzle to that evening gown!
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I’m obsessed with watching documentaries and I’m the Macaroni Kid publisher for Augusta, Ga.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I love downtown in spring! It’s literally perfect and there’s always something to do. Never a dull moment!
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I create because God gave me a talent and I plan to make sure that world gets to see how one person can bless another through creativity!
