Featured Studio of the Week: Cthings

This weeks featured studio is Cthings aka Cindy. Cthings has the distinction of being a part of the Artfire community for just about a year now. Yes, she is one of Artfire's original pioneers.

Cindy is a jewelry designer who really loves what shes does. She has been designing and creating jewelry for 3 years now and is still going "strong" at it. Designing and creating new pieces of jewelry from the beads and supplies she has on hand is lots of fun for her, as well as, being able to design and create custom pieces for her clients.

To this end she has developed wonderful communication skills with clients. Now this is definitely a very "savy" business woman!

In designing and creating new pieces Cindy uses a variety of jewelry making techniques from stringing to wire wrapping. She likes to work with a variety of beads and supplies. Look carefully and you will see crystals, pearls, semi-precious stones, lampwork beads, and more. For Cindy the saying "variety is the spice of life" holds true!

Here are some examples of her fabulous designs for sale in her studio:

Cindy has been an active participant of the world of arts and crafts since she was a child. She has found that jewelry design and creation is extremely satisfying but she has a stong passion to learn metal smithing. One day she hopes to take some classes so she can actually make her own metal pieces for her designs. Cindy, this sounds like a great future endeavor and here's wishing you lots of good luck.
Btw, before I forget Cthings has a special section for wedding jewelry with some really lovely pieces for sale in her studio:
Aren't these fabulous?

On the personal side our Cindy is a wife and mother and has a wonderful massage business that she "runs" in her home. Hey Cindy, how come you live so far away? I love getting massages, I would be a regular client if you were here in the NYC area.

Writing this studio feature for Cindy of "Cthings" has been quite a pleasure for me. Cindy is one of our most active members. Go to the forums and you will find her actively promoting for us. Each week she takes time out of her busy day to promote the featured studio on ByHand.me. Her spotlights are always amazing to look at. She is kind, friendly, helpful, supportive, creative, in short, a fabulous human being. Hey Cindy, you are one of the people who have touched me in a special way. You are a wonderful asset to our guild.
May you always have good health, happiness, and lots of success.

Come visit this fabulous studio:

If you have any questions for Cindy or custom orders please contact her through her studio.
