Soulcreations offers one of a kind jewelry using unique combinations of materials and design elements. Using rare stones, vintage components, antique metal castings, and old stock designer inventory culled from sources in Europe and new England, designer Wendy Humphreys creates marriages that hint at old world Byzantine and Victoriana with a hint of whimsy.

Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
I owned a Corporation for over 20 years. I created Soulcreations about 7 years ago. My middle son has a brain injury and I had to stay home with him. With my love of designing I poured my energy into building Soulcreations.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
To go and treasure hunt for the one of a kind vintage gem that had lost it's way, I love to go to flea markets and see if I can find that special item and when I do you feel like you struck gold!

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
You must always keep it fresh and work on it everyday. My biggest challenge right now is taking the perfect photo. That is an art in a whole other category. I keep trying to get that right, it is so important when you buy online that you can show the real beauty in a piece with your photo.

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
If I had to choose today I would love to have the Home is Where the Heart Is necklace. The charms are all vintage some are sterling silver and their is the little charm I soldered of a little boy.

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I thought I would be an artist.

What other shops out there do you love?
I adore Izebella from Velvet and Rust.
Of course Amy Hanna and The French Garden House.

What does your future hold?
I have just opened a second shop, so I will be adding supplies to that shop. I'm currently working in hand forging metal. I will be introducing a new line with the metal soon.
