My name is Brittany Voskuhl, I own this business alongside my adorable husband, Justin Voskuhl.
We met at 15 years old in high school, 8 years later we are married with a few fur babies! 🐾
My journey began when I was 13 years old, I started a little business called “Britt’s Hand-Made Jewelry”
At the time my 29 year old uncle was enduring stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma with a wife and two little babies. When I received a beginners jewelry kit the idea sparked, and I was in full pursuit to raise money for my struggling family! With a lot of help from my mom, we were selling jewelry in 3 local shops, as well as setting up booths at multiple charity events.
Throughout high school, I was apart of National Art Honor Society as well as many AP drawing and design, figure study classes & more. My jewelry business developed more into custom paintings/drawings for family and friends throughout high school.
Out of college, I worked as a Repair Liaison for Jared the Galleria of Jewelry and I loved it! 💎 (no surprise there...right?) I later moved onto a smaller locally owned jewelry shop. My love for jewelry had to come to an end in order to fully pursue my true dream! Once my shop gained traction, I dedicated my full time to creating and selling here on Etsy as well as craft fairs, vintage shows etc. 👩🏼🎨
NAME & LOGO EXPLANATION:
I developed my jewelry business into “Bas-Art” where I sold prints of my paintings, personalized custom painted shoes & more. Once I discovered a wood burner the game changed! I hand engraved every single piece for 3 years, until just recently purchasing a laser machine to not only help with production time but to ensure the most professional pieces just for you! Please know that every piece is still hand drawn and still my own hand calligraphy! ✍🏻
FAQ—What does BAS mean? “BAS” are my initials! My maiden name is Sibert, Brittany Ann Sibert. Once creating my etsy shop, getting married & becoming more established into the business we decided to change to “Bas Studios” to support the wide variety of options in the shop!
Why the chameleon? What does it mean? Good question! I have had the honor of caring for 2 panther chameleons. (Unfortunately due to illness both have passed) The panther chameleons are known for their markings/coloring. Their names were Cam & Liam and they were GORGEOUS! My logo is an exact drawing from my first chameleon, cam. He loved to walk around as I painted, I had him from a tiny baby & he was a very social chameleon. With their colorings mimicking so closely to an artists pallet, I thought what better way to honor my little guys than to make them the face of my business?!
Thank you for your time & interest in my story!
This business is my full heart & my entire life, I am so happy to get to share my dreams!✨
