Nancy Russell's Profile

About

Hello! Welcome to my shop Nancy's Crystal Fantasy. I love making and wearing jewelry! I guess you could say it is my trademark. I'm known to some as the jewelry diva.

I spent 32 years of my life as a public school teacher and administrator. A few years ago, two of my co-workers began making and selling jewelry, which I quickly found fascinating. I enlisted their help and expertise and soon I was making my own. It didn't take long before my jewelry wardrobe was overflowing. About that time I retired from my administrative position. Just because I had all the jewelry I needed didn't mean I was going to stop such a fun past time, so I decided that it was time to take the products of my jewelry-making hobby to the public. I learned about Etsy, and after spending some time exploring the shops and seeing the outstanding work represented here, I decided to set up my own shop…

Hello! Welcome to my shop Nancy's Crystal Fantasy. I love making and wearing jewelry! I guess you could say it is my trademark. I'm known to some as the jewelry diva.

I spent 32 years of my life as a public school teacher and administrator. A few years ago, two of my co-workers began making and selling jewelry, which I quickly found fascinating. I enlisted their help and expertise and soon I was making my own. It didn't take long before my jewelry wardrobe was overflowing. About that time I retired from my administrative position. Just because I had all the jewelry I needed didn't mean I was going to stop such a fun past time, so I decided that it was time to take the products of my jewelry-making hobby to the public. I learned about Etsy, and after spending some time exploring the shops and seeing the outstanding work represented here, I decided to set up my own shop.

I have to say I haven't found my "niche" as far as creating jewelry is concerned. I love bead weaving, kumihimo, working with wire, beading; and I love working with various media--crystals, especially Swarovski crystals, lamp work and other glass beads, semiprecious gemstones and pearls, seed beads, leather, glass, wire, and paracord. I love learning new methods and techniques. But when it came time to name my shop, I wanted it to reflect my love of crystals and represent the style of jewelry that I love, so the shop title quickly evolved--Nancy's Crystal Fantasy.

Creating and wearing jewelry brings me pleasure and pride, and I want other women to share those feelings as they wear jewelry from Nancy's Crystal Fantasy. I am proud to be a member of the JETs (Jewelry on Etsy Team). This team is an amazing group of talented artists from all over the world. If you would like to see more jewelry from us simply search using the term "jetteam".

I am also proud to be a contributing member of Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designer (SRAJD-member 3106), which assures that my jewelry is designed and made by me.

It is my hope that you will love my jewelry as much as I do. Every piece is unique, one-of-a-kind, and made with love in my home. It is crafted with care to give the wearer many, many years of wearing pleasure. My customers are my number one priority, and I want everyone to be happy with their special jewelry pieces. I am happy to make adjustments in my pieces, when possible, to fit your needs.
