I am a sole proprietor. All the items in my shop are truly handmade by myself. I purchase the supplies, I create all the finished goods. I photograph and post to my Etsy shop. I do the shipping.
Handcrafted lovelies have always been in the homes of my grandmothers, my mother, my aunts, my sisters, my cousins……….quilting, sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery………an art out of necessity.
I learned to crochet as a teenager. Our home town was under a flood watch. While my mother and myself were awake all night awaiting the alarm to evacuate she began to teach me to crochet. I was "hooked".
A full time IT Business Analyst job kept me from enjoying my craft full time. I am now retired, and enjoy endless hours of creating. I am grateful to Etsy for supplying the platform with which to share my craft and supplement my retirement. It is so rewarding to hear how my customers appreciate and admire my craft: www.etsy.com/your/shops/TableTopJewels/reviews

"In a slant of light, a woman crochets a doily,
Working the hook in and out. She wraps
a thread of cotton floss around her index finger,
almost as if she were writing. The words fall
from her crochet hook, linked into lace, a page.
Words tangle in stringy ink, almost manic,
a speaking in tongues, looped, caught, tucked
under a stitch of breath. Memory rises as if
it were a doily of lace, beautifully edged,
holding what once mattered."
