Greetings to everyone out there on Craftster. I've only recently (a week ago) found out about this site and join approx. 3 minutes afterwards.
I'm pretty eclectic I guess, and use art and crafts as side projects to try and keep myself out of trouble (this rarely works).
Professionally I'm finishing up a M.Sc. in Marine Biology, and I've been a lobster fisherman for the past 7 years. I'm from small (small small small
) town on the northeastern coast of New Brunswick, Canada
Under my crafter persona I'm really into making jewelry of all sorts. I usually work with glass beads, enjoy beading necklaces that are a bit obvious (multi-stranded, large focal beads, etc), earrings of all sort, and the occasional bracelet. I sell most of my stuff at a local country market, or to friends who get suckered into coming to visit my craft room.
I can sew, but have yet to tackle anything other than basic (I leave that complicated stuff to my Mom). I also have a kiln that I think I am going to make more use of this winter while being an unemployed bum... ceramic pedants with funky glaze here I come
Alright, enough with the rambling! Hello to everyone out there.
