Hello from the studio in Deckers, Colorado!

I just joined and figured my first step would be to let you know a little about myself.  I'm married and have two furkids (just like kids without the talk-back feature).  I currently work for "the man" but would really like to get away from answering to others.  I dabble in painting and scrapbooking but my passion is jewelry.  I hope to be able to get feedback from those who have the same passion and can help jump start my career.

Hello,

Just joined HAF today.  Looks like a wonderful site and a great community of people.  I've been looking around the site, reading blogs, etc. and like what I see so far!

I make handmade jewelry, and have been beading for 5+ years.  I have a couple of friends who also make jewelry, so we usually combine forces and sell together at craft fairs or in in-home shows.  We definitely did better before the economy tanked!  But I'm still plugging away at it - and trying to get myself out on the web and try business from the net instead.

I do work full time for an insurance company, and sell Avon as well.  It'd be so nice to ONLY sell jewelry for a living!  I can dream....

I'm also putting together what I know or have learned about beading and business, etc. and have created a site for beaders. (I like working on webpages, too!)

Hello I am Carmen alias bananamiranda and also alias mooaany.
I am a Precious Metal Clay Jewelry Artisan, and I just love working with PMC, gemstones, sterling and vintage beads to make one of a kind jewelry, from earrings to bracelets to necklaces and pendants.  I cant identify my chosen style to you because I really dont know what it is!  I just love adornments and unusual and handcrafted jewelry.

And now to introduce myself...

I'm Kris, originally from Denver, Co. I now live north of there in Longmont. I'm married with 2 young kids and presently we own one cat.  I started crafting and art a very long time ago, first being taught cross stich by my grandmother and then taking professional classes from a local teacher who was very strict.  If only I had learned more from her discipline or been able to return to her classes... however even after leaving her classes I've always pursued art in one form or another. Presently I make beaded jewelry, chainmaille, spiders (see my avatar), primacolor pencils drawings, acrylic painting of minitures (tabletop gaming ones) and also do lots of crafts with the kids (ages 2 &4). My etsy store is brand new and the result of local artists and friends giving me the umpf to get it going. You can find often on FB and I also got a twitter account going for this new endevor as well. I joined up with HMA sometime last year but never became actively involved, my resolution for 2010? To change that! To become a member of this growing community and online society. To learn as much as I can from others and teach all that I know along the way too... I look forward to being a part of something much bigger then myself. Thanks for having me!
