First Artfire Artist Feature: Gems by Jerri

Your name? Jerri

Location? Comfort, TX

Where can you be found on the net?

How long have you been crafting?
I have been crafting off and on for most of my life. I only started creating for sale in the last year. I previously gave my jewelry as gifts or sold to friends and family.

How long have you been selling?
I have had an Etsy shop since July of 2008. I recently opened a studio on ArtFire as well.

What is your favorite item in your shop?
My current favorite are the newly listed Chysolite and Jet pieces, particularly the earrings.

What's the most exciting thing about your craft?
I love when I receive new materials. I get so excited about what I can create. It's almost like Christmas when I get an order in the mail. The next best thing is logging in to my shops and finding an order, because that is when you know you aren't the only one who loves an item.

What do you like least about your craft?
I can't begin to explain how much I dislike photographing and editing photos to post. It has to be the most difficult part of any listing for me.

Is crafting a full or part-time job for you? If part-time what's your day job?
I craft in my spare time. I work full time for a jewelry manufacturing company here in south Texas. I prepare waxes for casting, usually in silver. I actually get to do a job I truly enjoy, so I couldn't be happier.

What would you like to learn next?
I am currently learning to work with polymer clay and really think it could become my new addiction.
Did you enjoy learning about Gems by Jerri?? I sure hope so! I know so, I can see you, my readers, digging in the etsy and artfire shops admiring this beauties...eheheh
