Meet Your Neighbor: Jaclyn Woznicki

Julie Brown/Sierra SunJaclyn Woznicki

Whyd you come up to Tahoe?I came here because of how beautiful the summer is. I loved the summers and I had never lived in a vacation town before. And to live near friends that I went to college with.Since you came up for the summers, how do you like the winters?Well. This is my last winter.Youre leaving town?I am going down to the Bay to get back to the city. So, how did you get into jewelry?I started making jewelry when I was a kid. I would go into my moms jewelry box and steal her stuff. Then Id take some tweezers, take [the jewelry] apart and put it back together in new ways, which of course I thought was beautiful. But my mom didnt think it was so beautiful, so she got me my own stuff instead.And now you have your own company.Mmm. Hmm.Whats it called?Bella Petunia. Where do you sell your jewelry?Right now, just from me. And I have a line of doggy jewelry at Scraps in Tahoe City.Whats your style?Handcrafted semiprecious stones and pearls. Tell me about bartending at Pete N Peters.Even though Ive only lived here for three years, Ive gotten to feel like a local because Ive gotten to know all the locals so well. Any good stories from Petes?Ummm …. Things that shouldnt be put in the paper …What are your thoughts on the local scene?I think that Tahoe City has a real sense of community. People take care of each other when they need some help. The Sierra Suns Julie Brown interviewed Woznicki for this weeks Meet Your Neighbor. Please send suggestions for Meet Your Neighbor to
