Monday Interview- Meet Emily Hall w/ Emin Taos!

Happy Monday and happy Labor Day to everyone in the U.S! I'd love to introduce a new very talented friend, Emily! She has beautiful things and was just featured on the front page of Etsy!!

Who are you?
My name is Emily Hall and I created a jewelry design business called EminTaos to sell jewelry around town and on Etsy.

Where do you live?
I live in Taos, New Mexico. It's high desert (at 7500 feet) with mountains, rivers, aspen groves and sage mesas....and has four seasons! We live out on the mesa with amazing views of the surrounding mountains about 1.5 miles off the paved road in a great community of adobes and earthships (google it!).

What do you do?
I raise my child, feed and clean up after my family, do most of the chores, and squeeze every spare moment I have into making, photographing, and promoting my jewelry. I used to be a zoo keeper and a floral designer if you can believe it.
How many kids? Husband/partner?
My husband and I have one amazing 4 yr old right now and are trying for a second.
And so you have a shop:

What's it's name? EminTaos......(Emily in Taos!)
What do you sell? I sell unique earrings, necklaces, silk ribbon wraps with charms, deerskin bracelet wraps, rings, jewel wrapped hoops....and I am always coming up with a new design.
How do you find the time? I use the three days my child is in preschool as wisely as possible and gobble up any time during PBS mornings (Clifford, Seasame street, Super know the rest) time on the weekends, and stay up till midnight most nights. I am a master multi-tasker, like all us moms. (why can't men do it too????)
Some of your favorite things?
Movie- LOTR triology the full 12 disc set! greatest movies ever made.
Color- sunset peach, coral, salmon, gold, bronze
Food- goat cheese pizza or my freshly made biscuits or scones dripping with butter and honey!
Kids book- I still love all of Richard Scarry's books.....I just had a great moment the other day reading what was my favorite part of What Do People Do All Day to my little girl
Time of day- Sundays 10-1pm
Cartoon Character- I'm very fond of all of Hayao Miyazaki movie heroines.....if you've never seen one of his movies, please go rent one tonight......start with Spirited Away!
Anything else you can think of you'd like to share :-) I am so happy to participate in a group full of amazing and talented women who constantly inspire me and remind me that I am doing the right thing for myself and my family. Hugs to you all!!!
