Bead Stringing, Wirework, Wire Wrapping, Polymer Clay, Precious Metal Clay
About Me - Tell us a little about yourself and your area of expertise
I've been making and selling jewelry for over 5 years and consider myself a bead addict! I like working with semi-precious stones, faceted glass, pearls, crystals, etc. I would consider myself mostly a bead stringer, but I do use a lot of chain and links, etc. in my designs as well.
I started dabbling with polymer clay beads and art clay silver - both of which can be frustrating at first but it's a lot of fun. Been too busy these days and have all that stuff packed away so I won't be playing with clay for a while but I hope to again in a few months.
I sell locally at craft fairs and also in-home shows. I have a website, but am struggling to get online sales going. I recently decided to start a new website - The Beader's Resource Guide - which will be a comprehensive resource for beaders of all levels to find bead-related info on a variety of topics.
As you can tell from my photo - I'm a newlywed - married in May of 09. So 2008-09 was all about planning a wedding! I have advice and tips on this as well at my main My Lil' Craft Shoppe site.
Just added a new page to my Beader's Resource Guide - with a LONG list of resources to find arts and craft fairs in a town year you! Sharing it with other beaders. Art and Craft Fair listings at the Beader's Resource Guide.
