Wel
Hello Everyone,

My name is Katie Rose, and I enjoy designing and making handmade jewelry.  About 6 years ago I bought a beautiful pair of earrings with a cool wire design and realized that I had the ability to make it myself.  I started experimenting and came into a style of my own.

I started out just making a few pieces here and there for friends and family, and after years of encouragement have decided to share my designs with the rest of the world.

I really enjoy seeing others designs and often get inspired all over again!  I hope to get to know you all better :)

Thanks!
~Katie Rose

Welcome Katie, I have had the pleasure of seeing some of your work already with the zipper roses.  Wonderful, what a gift you have.  You will love it here.

Welcome to the group Jane.  Glad to have you here.  Good to know someone else who crochets.  I have been crocheting off and on for many many years, though always with a pattern, never designing.  I love it and as it happens I have just become the latest crochet instructor at my local Michaels's store.  So I may need to make you my buddy to bounce ideas off of to get this class off the ground.

You will like it here the folks are great and very very helpful.

Another WELCOME to the group.  Do get involved in the forum and if you want in chat on Thursday evenings (my time).  You will find all sorts of folk here in multiple genres.  If you have any questions, ask.  Someone will come along with an answer, or two, or three.....

Hi, my name is Connie;
I'm not sure I'm in the right place. Is this a jewelry forum or crochet?  I didnt read them all but it seem to be a jewelry forum.  Excuse me if it is, I was just wanting to introduce myself.  I started doing crafts years ago as a hobby. I worked for over 20 years in corporate law doing computerized billing.  I was downsized and found myself out of a job.  Then because of my age I had a hard time finding work.  Then I had some serious health issues.  So I started doing what I could to stay afloat.  Now I create angels and dolls that are inspired by scriptures from the bible, people I meet, phrases I hear and so many things that are inspired by my faith in Christ. I made lemonade from the lemons!  I love what I do. I have not made near the money I use to make but I dont wake up hating to go to work sometimes but i do have to hustle more than I ever thought.  I have three children and three grandchildren all of whom are my delight.  I am a big Jane Austen fan and I love Tyler Perry movies.  I am sometimes bewildered by all the social media and I try to keep up with it but I would rather sew and design dolls than keep up with them all.  I do try but it can be a bit much. I am learning more and probably need to set up a schedule.  Where I am I can't have a dog so i am having an affair with my neighbors beautiful black chow.  She lets me give him treats and He comes and barks for them.  He's a riot.  I m a fabricoholic I love pretty fabrics, ribbons, buttons and stuff.  I wake up every day praying for the Lord to bless me and take it from there.  I've learned appreciation for the simple things and wake up happy to be able to do what I do.  Even if I eat Ramen noodles sometimes.  LOL

Hi Connie, you are in the right place.  This forum and these shops are for anything handmade.  Glad to see you here and look forward to getting to know you.  I have jewelry listings but also do crochet and paint a little.  Not selling any of that yet but plan to.  Love your angel idea, be sure to post some pics for us all to see. 

Again, welcome to the crazy crowd of handmade artists.

Connie wonderful to have you with us! Jump right in, one thing about this community that I can tell you, is that you get out of it what you put into it!
So kick off the shoes, take a seat and hang out for a while  :laugh:
