I have been a crafter of different items for almost 40 years, yes I began in the womb. The items I don't do would probably be best listed vs. the items I do. My current obsession is jewelry making, mixed media, wire wrapping, watches, leather working, gemstones, genuine gems and Kumihimo bracelets. I also am an avid painter using acrylics and oils on canvas, country style acrylics on wood, metals, chalkboards and ceramics. I make a unique lap board for use with IPad or Notebook, that has a chalk board finish so it has a double use (great for algebra). I also have a magnetic finish that I use on diferent types of wood for a different age group as a double use (great for the magnetic letters). However, this journey began with printed cross stitch and went to counted cross stitch (which I still do) and then macrame plant holders and candle making . I have found crafting, no matter what the media, is very therapeudic.
CUSTOM ORDERS ARE AVAILABLE IN ANY MEDIUM
My materials are purchased from quality suppliers many are listed in this Land and are quality items. For instance, I try to stay with Swarovski crystals, which may make the price higher, but it also makes your jewelry piece more vibrant, pleasing to the eye and last longer.
At some on-line stores you will see a picture of 10 beads, but what you are bidding on is only for 3 or 5 beads. The rest are just for show so you can see what can be done with additional beads to complete the bracelet, for instance. I don't know about you, but that just makes me angry and mad. What you see pictured in my offers is what you get. If you see 5 beads on a bracelet to show how the beads look on a bracelet - but you don't get the bracelet? You're not buying from me. If my picture shows 5 beads on a bracelet, you are getting 5 beads on a bracelet.
I do attend estate sale and police acquisitions and buy some items there. So, some of my items are not handmade but each description will be clearly marked if it is handmade or manufactured by big business.
