Get to Know
We've been selling online since 2002 but I first started playing with beads in the late '70s and early '80s, making and selling all things macrame...from plant hangers to micro knotted jewelry. This was pre-internet (boy does that make me feel old! LOL!) so we sold our work at arts and crafts shows throughout Ohio and lower Michigan.
Life got in the way...but I eventually returned to this love. In addition to our online adventures, we're also selling locally at markets and arts/crafts shows. Jim has a variety of talents, including polymer clay, wire wrap, survival bracelets, and inlaid deer antler pendants. He is also the master of our inventory and order fulfillment system.
And last, but certainly not least, I luuuuuuuuuuuv dogs! I recently ended a four-year span of volunteering as a family dog trainer for a local shelter.
Thanks for stopping by!
