About Me

Photo of Lorri E of Making-Jewelry.Com

My name is Lorri and I've been making jewelry and selling my own jewelry designs successfully for several years, now. It all started as a hobby, but people liked my work so much that someone suggested I start selling my jewelry. So, one day I decided to see if I could sell my designs on-line. In my first month selling jewelry just part-time on eBay, I did nearly $1,000 in sales!

Soon I was selling my jewelry at craft fairs, and at a local gift boutique. Next I was hosting jewelry making parties for friends, and donating jewelry to charity auctions. My little jewelry hobby had turned into a great jewelry business!

Many people have asked me to teach them how to make and sell their own jewelry, and I thought it would be a great idea to bring up a website to do exactly that! So, whether you are making jewelry for fun or for profit, I will share what I have learned to help make you successful.

I hope this site will spark your inspiration. Thanks for visiting!
