Hello my name is Benessa. I enjoy all things crafty, reading writing.. pretty much everything right brained. I love working on wire wrapping rings and necklaces whenever my 20month old son lets me.
What is your favorite craft to make and why?
Wire wrapped rings are my favorite to make though I really love the necklaces I have created aswell. I don’t get out much so it’s nice to have something craft to do that I really enjoy and the possibilities are endless.
Who got you involved in crafts?
One day I just woke up and decided I’m going to do wire wrapping. My husband was skeptical at first but now helps picking out my beads and wire!
Do you have an Etsy shop? If so, what is the name?
Yes, Wire Bazaar.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hope to have a stable income from jewelry making and a better workplace with lots of beads and wire. Year by year I hope to just gradually increase my skills with wire wrapping and have my family push me forward every step of the way.
What advise would you give to other crafters?
Keep at it and dont give up. When you find yourself running low on new creative ideas just open your mind and eyes and take in whats around you. I often feel like I can’t possibly think of a new ring/necklace design but the moment I stop stressing about it so much, an idea (or 5!) come rushing in 🙂
