Hi everyone, I'm Christian Marie. I've been a member here for a long time, but for some reason I never read the forums before today.

I live in New Orleans, and I make my living (sort of) selling my handmade purses and wallets. I also do the occasional custom caricature pinata, and some special effects makeup.

Here's my makeup site: http://killchrissy.com

The pinatas don't have a site yet, but they will soon! :)

That's awesome!  I looked at your FX site and you have some great stuff.  I know of what I speak, too, since I'm a face painter who's done FX also.   8)

Hello everyone, I am Cat (or sometimes Helen). I found your group via Twitter.

I make design and make jewellery - much of which is sterling or pure silver, though I do have a number of pieces which are base metals for smaller budgets.

I live in Poole, Dorset with my husband, son and 2 cats (not good for the wool craft but still fun) and I am starting out turning my passion into a business.

I got an Esty account (catscreationsjewels) but I havent trudged through setting up anything to sell yet. Note to self - stop prevaticating and set it up!

Looking forward to chatting and getting to know everyone.
Cat xx

HI everybody!

My name is Riina and about year and half ago I found a way to the jewellery word. :D Since then I have been making a lot of colorful jewellery for myself and my friends. I love colours- that´s the reason what keeps me on making jewellery and why I never get bored of them. I also love wire wrapped jewellery but this technique is too complicated for me, so I just admire the work of others. :-*

You can see some of my goodies and fun tutorails in my blog.

Hello Everyone!  My name is Lisa, from SilverCoastSeaGlass (etsy).
I live summers in the southwest of France and the winters in southwest Florida.
I just started my Etsy store and am excited to find this forum of like-minded handmade enthusiasts :)

I've been making and selling jewelry on and off for about 8 years or so . This summer I've been at it full time.  Every day I take long walks on the beach and find my treasures - my favorite part.
I sell my jewelry here at "expos" in beach restaurants
and I am giving fun classes on "how to wire wrap found objects". 
People bring in sea glass, shells or stones and get to take home a lovely souvenir necklace.
 
My experience has been marketing online for the past two years -mostly ebooks and other peoples products.  But I missed playing with
my tools and beads.  So here I am.

I'm looking forward to learning and helping others here in any way I can.

My name is Andrea of Jewelry by Andrea.  I have been in business for about 2 1/2 years.  I make beaded Jewelry using traditionally made materials from Countries such as Nepal, Tibet, Thailand, Bali and Ethiopia just to name a few.  I really enjoy using Spritual and Handmade items.  I love researching the meaning behind the pieces and how they have been made.  Big and Bold describes many of my designs.  Whenever possible I purchase from Women in Business and try to buy from as close to the source of production as possible.  Many of my items come directly from the families that have made the pendants and beads.

I currently sell through my own website, Artfire, Ruby Plaza and Etsy.  I also participate in at least 6 local Art Shows a year.  I am a stay at home Mom to a 5 and 7 year old.  We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Hello Everyone I'm Marjorie and new around here.  I found the team while I was looking around for a Team to join that was international and not US based as I am British and living in New Zealand.

At the moment I am making jewelry and art doll pins (OK so they are jewelry too!) as well as exploring metalsmithing - although this is early stages I am having fun being inspired by figures and flapper girls in metal too.

I hope to be able to drop in on a regular basis and get involved

Hello!

My name is April, and I'm owner of Enchanted Dandelions.  Of course, my first and foremost title is momma to my three little Sprouts (ages 5y, 4y and 26m).  We love the great outdoors, and you'll often find us outside enjoying nature- hiking, camping, geocaching, and of course, making wishes on dandelions. 

Our family's goal to live as naturally as possible is the inspiration behind Enchanted Dandelions.  In my Etsy shop, you'll find ecofriendly products such as cloth diapers, flaxseed hot/cold therapy packs, cotton baby bibs, and so much more.   

I can't wait to get to know everybody.  Unfortunately, I won't be around a whole lot between my Sprouts, my business, homeschooling, and everything else, but I'll try my best to stop by as often as I can!

Peace, Love and Magic!
