how long have yuo ben crafting? when did yuo start?
I have been making jewelry for about a year.

I started to make jewelry as a way to express my creative side and touch other people. I have Multiple Sclerosis and it has been very difficult for me to write which is what I used to do, so I had to find another way to express myself and creating jewelry helps me do that.

what inspired you to begin and what keeps you inspired now?
What keeps me inspired is that I love what I do. I love to make jewelry, I love to help people heal which is what my jewelry is designed to do.

what is the favrit thing in your shop for you?

My favorite thing in my shop right now is this bracelet:
$28 and $3.50 shipping

how long have yuo ben on etsy? how were yuo introdusd to etsy?
I have been on Etsy since February of this year 2011. I found Etsy doing a search of handmade jewelry.

any advise to a newby?

The advice I have for a newbe is to give it time. If you have a product you believe in and you create your shop using all the tips that Etsy gives, you will sell. A few of the most important points to having a successful shop:

*Make sure you have gorgeous pictures
*Work on your search engine optimization
*Enjoy what you do

what is yuor fave charity yuo wod like to have hilited?

If I have the opportunity to highlight something I really believe in and hope to help I would like to tell you about a shop on Etsy that is a cooperative of women that sell Shea Butter from Sudan. The shop is called, Lululife: Lulu Works Trust, LTD is a member-owned women's cooperative registered in Sudan and Kenya. LWT was set up with the assistance of MEDIC, an international NGO that has since worked side-by-side with the women's cooperative providing technical assistance and moral support encouraging the women to make their shea butter available world-wide and facilitating access to international markets.

The woman of Sudan have seen horrors that our minds wouldn't be able to comprehend. We all need to help each other. Their Etsy shop is:
