My name is Cheryl Clarke with Answer Your Dream Jewelry. I design inspirational jewelry for dreamers. I just launched a website a few weeks ago and I’m still excited about that…I have a website! Me!
I was so nervous when I launched it. If there is anyone out there who may be afraid to get online, I would say take some deep breaths and jump. It’s so worth it just to see your designs online and to have people get excited about what you do.
I would also say not to allow perfectionism to hold you back from getting online. I’ve goofed up a few picture postings, where the pictures would post sideways even when they looked okay on my screen. I got some online support to figure out the glitch. It’s all a work in progress. Even life.
I started designing beaded jewelry in 1999 and then branched into stamping last year. During my jewelry journey I would go to the craft stores and read the magazines. I would see the stamped jewelry and knew that stamping would be my path someday.
Right now I specialize in copper, which is really interesting. After I started working with copper I read that copper is the metal associated with the zodiac sign Libra.
That’s pretty cool! I have done some stamping on sterling silver as well, and will continue to branch out slowly.
I hope you all are enjoying your jewelry adventures.
