How jewelry crafting came to be such a big part of my life … A blessing in disguise – my daughter’s wedding was cancelled 3 months before the walk down the isle. What was a very traumatic time for all parties involved ended up being the best for everyone later. This is just one more for the theory of “Everything happens for a reason”!

Since I have been a ‘crafty’ person all my life – I used those skills to make everything I possibly could for the wedding. All the supplies were purchased and prototypes were made.

Then the news came – so off I go to return massive amounts of stuff to the local craft stores. Return policies being as they are, mixed with the fact that we had been shopping for more than 6 months meant gift cards with lots of $$$. At this point I decided everyone I have ever known, every one who was to receive a gift from me for the rest of my natural life (and quite possibly thereafter too) would in fact get something from the craft stores. The next thing I know people are coming into my office daily to see what the latest creation is. Those simple little gifts of friendship have turned into something I truly love to do.

Janet’s Fun Jewels expanded to the Etsy site at the urging of loyal customers from local shows. Craft shows tend to be seasonal and I had multiple requests for more options to see the newest creations. So here I am – finding my way around in cyber space! It’s a journey and time will tell where we end up! I expect lots of fun in this journey!

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this and I hope you will visit often ~ I look forward to every new heart that finds a way into my shop!
