As a member of HAF I must take the time to say that my experiences as part of the HAF team have been wonderful. Every time I got in a jam and needed help sorting out a problem, Kim and Andrew were there to promptly offer help. I think they both have their heart in this venture, and really care about Handmade, keeping it interesting, alive and available, and I think they are succeeding!
I've decided that I live on the wrong side of the world!
Kris of Lisianblue says this about herself. How wonderful to admit it! And she makes great use of her lopsided sleep schedule from being on the wrong side of the world by making beautiful handmade Heirloom Collectible Ornaments, Bunnies, and even Valentines.
Obviously with an eye and hand for the delicate and beautiful, It has been a pleasure looking at her work. Those bunnies would even please a grown up baby too!
Couldn't you just squeeze and squeeze?
Any of her ornaments would be a special addition to your collection.
"There's still a box out in my garage, labeled "Joan's Stones". I collected them as a child − and started beading not long after, making rosaries for the missions".
This is a quote of a lady after my own heart, beads and jewelry start out as a fascination for a lot of us from early on. And I think that making jewelry is an expression of your personality in a lot of ways, it certainly is an expression of talent. Joan has a boat load of talent and from what I hear from other HAF members a pleasant and helpful nature as well. She has a great knowledge base on beads and gemstone that she shares with us on her website http://www.ltdbeads.com and she has an Artfire Shop at http://LTDBeads.artfire.com and an Etsy shop as well LTDBeads
I am proud to be featuring Joan, even as a Jewelry Artisan myself, I find my self coveting some of her jewelry!
