'lo, all! I'm Michelle, & I am incredibly new to the world of Etsy - I finally began putting items up in my shop just a few days ago (a month after I began the process of setting the shop up!). Creating things from any sort of medium has always been my biggest passion. I draw, paint, make bags & jewelry & other fun things, & I certainly take up too much space on computers with my growing amount of photos. I don't have much up for sale as far as variety goes right now, but I'm always working on something so hopefully that changes soon!

I don't have a facebook solely for my shop, but I do have a twitter account, which is for both personal & shop use (I hate having too many accounts on one website, I lose my mind). If anyone would like to be twitter buddies, I'm fishlikegreen. :)

Sorry, I tried to resize the picture, but every time it would come in the same no matter what I did.  So I just removed it.

Helloo

I am Clarie from a very small tropical island. I was introduced to beading when I was searching for unique wedding favors. We wanted to give our guests something they could use and pleasant to look at, something they would keep. My sister told me she learnt how to make swarovski beaded angels from a beading studio near my house. And then the journey began.

Though the beading studio had since closed down, my interest for jewelry making surged. It was so therapeutic that I took a year off from my job, hoping to make a livelihood out of it. While sales were alright, it was tough making ends meet. So, I will become a teacher next year but meanwhile, I am still sticking to jewelry making in my spare time. The passion I have for this craft is the most important thing I have discovered in this life.

Cheers!

Hi, I'm Deb and I'm a multi-media artist. I love working with fiber, fabric, beads and clay. My etsy shop is: DebThuman (no space between my first and last name) and I've got a blog. I'm not sure what's going to happen when I click on post, so I'm going to put the links to the blog and etsy store here.

Hello everyone.  Stumbled on this forum while checking my email and following links and eventually ended up here. Looks interesting and would like to hang out for a bit. Currently I have an etsy shop www.liquidsabre.com and an artfire shop http://www.artfire.com/users/LiquidSabre

Hi everyone,

My name is Marilyn. I make sterling silver wire jewelry and beaded jewelry. I also love to bake and cook. I have creative O.C.D.  ;) I am never happy with what I know and am always aspiring to learn new techniques and different forms of creative art. My boyfriend and I are working toward our goal of owning our own small home business and have a shop on Etsy. (www.shapedbyhand.etsy.com)

My boyfriend has a passion for metal and wood. He is currently hammering sterling silver for some of our pieces. He has one of those logical minds that understands angles, measurements and how to build things that actually function and don't just look good. He compliments my creative mind and we work really well together so we consider ourselves fortunate.

I am looking into selling on Artfire and maybe 1000 markets but don't want to overwhelm myself  :-\

I look forward to creative exchanges with everyone here as well as gaining knowledge and inspiration.

Catch ya later  ;)

Oh,...we are also on twitter, facebook and we have a blog:

Hi ya - My name is Bobbi, and I'm addicted to wire. There I said it, I feel better.  ;) I have been addicted to wire for more than 20 years. I recently took the leap of faith, to stay home and work on my art full time - more than a little scary; a lot of hard work (I never take a day off) - but I wouldn't trade the opportunity for ANYTHING!
I'm always looking to improve myself, and my craft, and hope what I do makes a difference.
I write wire wrapping tutorials, and create one-of-a-kind pieces of lasting jewelry.
I'm thrilled to have found this forum, and look forward to learning and sharing.....
