JET Artisan Profile -
Lucia Williamson of CrystalImpressions

I was inspired to make jewelry because my sisters were having jewelry parties. I bought a few pieces at these parties, looked closely at them and decided I could make jewelry.

I started out doing glass cats eye jewelry, but I have always loved sparkle and bling! So then I began buying Swarovski Crystals and gemstone beads to use in my designs.

I sold my first piece of jewelry to a family member.

I love to wire wrap; this is my favorite way to make jewelry.

Bracelets and necklaces are my favorite things to create.

My favorite tool - what I must have to create - are my favorite pair of pliers.

I would eventually like to learn metalsmithing.

I am inspired by gemstones that sparkle.

Visit my Etsy Shop to see my handmade jewelry!

You can see more of my handcrafted jewelry designs on Flickr

I have a CrystalImpressions shop on DeviantArt ...

I have done craft shows in the past.

I currently sell my jewelry @ Emmaus Jewel Shop Emmaus PA.

My hobby is making jewelry. I love music, cooking,
my animals and I especially love Persian cats!

Here's a look at some of the jewelry in my Etsy shop ...
