About Me - Tell us a little about yourself and your area of expertise
Hi! Welcome to the Jewelry Makers Network! My name is Karen and I've been making jewelry for more than fifteen years. I've had the pleasure of learning how to string and weave beads, make chainmaille, use a torch to shape glass beads, fuse glass, form polymer clay as well as a number of other fun techniques. I setup the Jewelry Makers Network because I wanted to create a place for creative people to meet, share ideas and techniques, make new friends, learn from one another and to have fun!
