Hello everyone. My name is Ginny and I've fallen head over heels in love with handcrafting jewelry. I've crafted many different styles of earrings and am starting on bracelets also. I love working with shells, charms, and beads and hope to eventually get into silversmithing. However, I have plenty on my plate right now so that will come much later.

I look forward to meeting you all and I just love browsing the forum and seeing all the beautiful pieces everyone has created. I hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

Hi, welcome.  I am also pretty much a newcomer.  I am looking to exchange links with other sites.  Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks

Post in the gallery? If I can figure out how.

Jewelry, Dharlee? What kind? I guess that's for another thread, though.


Here is the link to the jewelry gallery.
http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php/board,7.0.html

When you are the main page, scroll down and you will see all kinds of topics. The gallery is towards the bottom and there are sections for different types of items. Click on "new Topic" to start your thread and use the tinypic link to post your picture. Be sure to resize by using the drop down menu. It's quite simple to use. Be sure and ask if you have questions.

HI  :D
My name is Ann, the owner of The Stash Box, its still really new and am building on it.  I have tried most crafts over the years, from glass painting, glass engraving, to wood burning and cross stitch, but I have discovered my
passion, Knitting and quilting.
 
Im a new sock designer and have had my design published in a national knitting mag in the UK.  im also looking into getting a spinning wheel.  Iv got a drop spindle and love to see the yarn appearing out of the fiber and then to see that yarn turned in to a lovely item is to me magical. 

i work full time and am a mum of 2 teenage boys, my youngest is just knitting his first proper project a pair of hand warmers and is getting on nicely with it.

look forward to making some new friends xxx :-*

Hi, My name is Shanna from AlchemyAtelier. My day job is as a costume tech, though I enjoy crafting all the time. I love making jewelry, hats, and just about any other kind of funky fun wearables I think of. I love working with mixed-media and often incorporate glass, metal, wood, fabric, paper, plastic, etc etc into my work! My motto is: don't limit yourself!

Hi!

My name is Nikki and I've always wanted to be an artist.  I'm not sure what I thought the qualifying factor was, but I finally have given myself permission to use that revered title.  Lol.  My current passion is making jewelry.  I especially love wire work and re-purposing vintage items...so fun!  I also have 5 kids, so I do most of my creating in the wee hours.  Send me a note if you're up!
