My sister, Joy, is the one who got me started making jewelry.
She's been doing it for years, and is very, very good. It's so fascinating to go see her in her element, with treasure troves of beads and wires and chains and fasteners all spread around her on the floor, and to watch her hands move so quickly as she whips out amazing creations faster than your eyes can follow. She's sold tons of things over the years to family and friends, and occasionally in local trinket shops, but I've been trying to convince her to start selling more on Etsy, and maybe even start a jewelry blog, and share some of her unending knowledge!
She messaged me the other day to tell me that she'd added a few things to Etsy, and I thought I would share the link with you all! I must warn you that if anything catches your eye, you should snatch it up before I convince her that she should double her prices!! Coming from someone who also sells jewelry, I happen to know that she can't possibly even be making her money back! And she hardly charges anything for shipping. It doesn't surprise me a bit though, because my sister has always been generous to a fault. :o)

I also have a quick question that's been on my mind for a while....
Does it make you guys sad that so many of my projects are sewing projects? I always feel a little guilty for the non-sewers out there, because so many of my projects are not applicable to them. But maybe most of my readers are sewers anyway? Just something I've been wondering about. But maybe I'm stressing out over nothing. :o) I do tend to do that!
