Handmade Artists Forum Feature Artist for April 18th through the 24th ParadisePurls

 Elizabeth Humphries of Paradise Purls said on her Etsy profile "a few years ago it seemed several of my new friends were knitters. At first I wasn't interested, but then my curiosity got the best of me. I taught myself to knit using a "how to" booklet, and a little help from some girlfriends and my MIL. I fell in love with all the yarn...the colors and textures. One of my favorite things to do is spend time in a yarn shop touching all the different yarns."


and if that is not talented enough she decided to explore jewelrymaking and is great at making beautiful earrings and adorable beaded bookmarks.  I personally find these bracelets outstanding because Elizabeth has managed to knit jewelry, how cool is that!  I love her knitted hats and scarves as well.  You can see for yourself at
