You may notice that there is now an advertisement on the left side of your screen. This is an ad for my shop on Etsy, Sheep’s Beads. This is, in effect, shameless self-promotion on my part. You see, when I was a little kid, my aunt gave me one of those Klutz activity books for Christmas. The one she purchased for me was about jewelry-making and stringing beads. I made a few things with it, and I got hooked on stringing beads. I still make beaded jewelry to this day and I have so many pieces that I could never possibly wear them all, so I’m hoping to sell some of them on Etsy. Etsy.com is like a big online craft show, with millions of users all over the world. People sell craft-making supplies (yarn, beads, etc), crafts that they themselves have made (everything from furniture to clothes to jewelry to toys to everything in between), and vintage items. Here is a link to my shop. Sheep’s Beads. I sell necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, and I will be adding more items often (at least once a week). I hope you’ll stop in and take a look around and check out some of the other Etsy shops while you’re there. This is a community of hard working individuals who make and sell quality, handmade goods.
