I love making my own jewelry. I have been doing it since the mid 90's . . . before it became so popular. There's nothing like being able to create a set of jewelry (necklace, bracelet, earings, rings) to match an outfit perfectly. My stuff has been featured in 3 local shops and I love to attend craft shows -alot of fun. It's a great way to make extra money and you never know when a custom order might come in. I do it for family, friends, and co-workers. I've even been stopped by strangers, liking what I'm wearing, for orders and those are the best form of flattery.
