Hi everyone, I recently started a shop here after just not feeling the Etsy for the past few years (but my son bought some nice gifts from China on there  ;) )
I have another site on Weebly which is stand alone, but this here is a good reason for me to actually finish pieces that have been laying around my work space. I love to start projects and  not finish.
I used to do art, craft and boutique shows in the 90s, loom knit knitwear, wall hangings, lots of images which I now do in jewelry. Still trying to figure out how to put links with products and my bio.
Just wanted to introduce myself, my shop is a work in progress and as a hobby. I can't stop making things, it keeps me sane and occupied.

I'm Cyn, hola!  I was born to a golden haired lady & had 2 sisters.  My mom married a man with 3 boys with dark hair.  Oh wait, that's the Brady Bunch!  I am 45, I live in Dayton, OH also known as "little New York City", no, not really.  Seriously, ever since I was a little kid I created.  When I was 4 I painted rocks and sold them door to door until my parents caught me.  My big brother was always my best customer.  I used to make Barbie & Ken furniture and clothes for them.  Thank goodness we didn't have all the cool stuff kids have now or maybe I wouldn't have always been creative.

About 3 years ago I had a table in an antique/thrift store and had a blast selling there.  I mostly sold small antiques and jewelry that I made.  At that time I was only making beaded bracelets.  The store closed after I was there for about 6 months.  I got really busy with life & stopped making jewelry. I lost my job in September due to not being able to breathe to go into work EVERY day. So, with free time on my hands I pulled out my jewelry making tool box, started watching "how to" videos to learn different techniques. It's funny how being broke has lifted my creativity and helped me to think outside of the box.  Who needs to buy silver charms when there are soup cans in the trash!!  Anyway, I've become addicted to Steampunk ideas- I want to learn how to do everything-

I've always steered clear of selling online because I didn't want to deal with shipping!  So, here I am.. I might have questions for everyone, bear with me!  I've spent DAYS, no, WEEKS trying to find the RIGHT website to try to sell my soul, I mean my art.  It feels like I'm in the right place.
Peace, Love, Bubblegum, Cyn   :-\

Hi - my name is Marcia & I joined Handmade Artists on March 5th.  I only have 15 of my handmade jewelry listed in my booth, Jazzy Beads, but plan on adding more soon.

Beading was a hobby for me about five years ago and I was addicted!  All of my relatives and friends loved my designs and suggested that I sell on-line which I have been doing now for the last five years.  I started on Bonanza and have been doing well for the last year on Etsy and eBay.  I am always looking for new opportunities to sell my jewelry so I decided to list here. 

Please stop by and say hello and check out my handmade bracelets, necklace sets, watches along with my popular sports jewelry.
