Hi everyone. My name is Naomi. I'm 23 and I've been crafting ever since I was a kid. Right now, I've settled on jewelry making and I use a lot of different items: polymer, found items, beads, etc. etc. I'm just beginning to figure out how to run a business while keeping the passion for creating unique and fun jewelry.

I would love it if you checked out my store on Etsy and let me know what you think. I'm so happy to have found this community of like-minded creative and talented individuals!

Hi, I'm Sam from Norfolk and I have a bead addiction.  I sell as much as I can bear to part with at local craft fairs and online. 

One day I will give up my day job (teaching) and make jewellery full time.  One day....

*Stands up*
Hello my name is Chris and I am.....  :-[ .... an artist.... I admit I have a problem, I can't stop making things out of wood.  Wait that isn't a problem, but it is an addiction.  I love making things.

My main pieces of art come from either the scroll saw or the lathe that I got for Christmas. 

I love making things and maybe one day I can give up my job as a network security engineer and do woodworking full time.

Hi!  I'm Janet!  I am just now taking time to join jewelry and beading forums eventhough I've owned my own business and done beading now since 2005.  I love coming up with new designs and am hopeful to get my website to be successful so that I can stay at home with my youngest for a few more years.

Thanks for letting me join and have a blessed day everyone!  ;)

Sincerely,
Janet

Wow, wow. I'm starting to wonder if I belong here! Just a few posts and you have all of your own business!

Hello! My name is Susan, I'm 25 years old and I actually just recently got in to the art of making crafty things!
I'm enjoying making hair accessories and jewelry. I'm very new to crafty, so I may ask a lot of questions!

I usually try and look up tutorials online for help, but sometimes it's not always what I'm looking for.

I hope to learn a lot from all of you!  ^-^

Hello my name is Rahdi, I was introduced to glass blowing back in 1997 where I fell in love with it. As a kid, I was always making something out of nothing. When I found this magical substance called glass, my eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning and I'm six years old again. Well that was 14 years ago, and I still feel the same excitement every time I create something! I hope you enjoy my work as much I did making it.


One of a kind Handmade Jewelry like: dichroic glass pendants with Sterling Silver bails, glass earrings and charms or anything else I can dream up!!
