Tina Crocker's Profile

About

I'm on my way to middle age with two grown children and 2 grandchildren. I've been happily married for more than 35 years and plan to stay that way. I retired at the end of 2011 after working for a major aerospace corporation for 30 years.

I've always loved arts and crafts. As I grew up I was taught or learned on my own to embroider, crochet, knit, and sew for myself and others. In 2003 I started out making my own custom handmade jewelry and then received many requests to make it for others. When asked to pick a name for my online store I chose the letters on my license plate: GRNEYD (abbreviation for Green Eyed) and made GrnEyd Designs.

I learned that customers particularly liked getting an item that was a custom handmade jewelry piece made for them and would not be duplicated. As GrnEyd Designs I've spent the last ten years learning many new…

I'm on my way to middle age with two grown children and 2 grandchildren. I've been happily married for more than 35 years and plan to stay that way. I retired at the end of 2011 after working for a major aerospace corporation for 30 years.

I've always loved arts and crafts. As I grew up I was taught or learned on my own to embroider, crochet, knit, and sew for myself and others. In 2003 I started out making my own custom handmade jewelry and then received many requests to make it for others. When asked to pick a name for my online store I chose the letters on my license plate: GRNEYD (abbreviation for Green Eyed) and made GrnEyd Designs.

I learned that customers particularly liked getting an item that was a custom handmade jewelry piece made for them and would not be duplicated. As GrnEyd Designs I've spent the last ten years learning many new unique jewelry techniques that can be applied to custom jewelry. With my love of color I've found that my strongest skill is in color matching rather designing new designs and making unique handmade custom jewelry piece(s) for each new person or situation has been very satisfying. The GrnEyd Designs store on Etsy was created (now that I'm available full time to create) to feature my custom handmade jewelry designs and share my excitement and satisfaction with you. I've now found other expressions of my knowledge of arts and crafts that might interest you.

I hope that you all enjoy viewing, purchasing and wearing my jewelry designs as much as I enjoy making them. And please, if you don’t see something that speaks to you, use the Custom Design Request and let me know your requirements and together we will design the piece(s) you are looking for.
