My name is Melissa J and I crochet. I want to welcome you to my studio (Crochet By Melissa J) and thank you for visiting! My studio features exclusive crocheted items and a few non-crocheted items that have been hand-crafted by me in Phoenix, AZ in a smoke-free environment. I originally learned to crochet back in 2000. I was taught by a very dear family friend. I learned how to crochet inorder to make a chemo cap for my grandma. At the time, however, I was too busy to continue with my crocheting. After I long hiatus, I resumed my crocheting in January 2008. I really enjoy my crocheting and enjoy designing and modifying patterns to create unique items. I especially like working with crochet thread and beads to make jewelry, accessories, embellished cards, and ornaments. All of the jewelry items I create feature nickel-free materials (which is great for those with a nickel allergy, like myself). In addition to my crocheting, I enjoy many other crafts, including making cards, beaded jewelry, and counted cross-stitching. After much encouragement, from family and friends, to sell my crochet items, and in order to pay medical bills, I decided to start my crochet business, Crochet By Melissa J. I hope you like my hand-crafted, exclusive crochet items and exclusive MelissaJ non-crochet items. Hand-crafted items make great gifts. Order your items today! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time and interest. ~ Melissa J
