Now here is a little bit about the wonderful designer!
Hello, my name is Hazel Wollbrinck and I am (almost) 63 year's young. I live in a small town in Wyoming with my husband Fred, two dog's Katie and Fay Fay and two fish Lovey and Dovey.
My hobby is gardening, my passion is designing jewelry. I am retired so I have the luxury of working from my home and dedicating as much time as I like to my craft and running my Etsy shop My Gemstone Designs. My shop name was easy to come up with as I love working with gemstone's.
I started beading a couple of years ago. My sister had been making jewelry for a while and I decided to give it a try and make a few Christmas gifts for family and friends. To make a long story short once I started I couldn't stop and before I knew it I had more jewelry than family and friend's thus the birth of My Gemstone Designs. I would like to give credit to my husband for encouraging me to start an online business to sell my jewelry.
I worked very hard for a year and a half trying to build my business and I have to admit I wasn't very successful. Like so many other's I was totally lost on the big World Wide Web. I was ready to throw in the towel and call it quits when I received a beading catalog in the mail from my sister.
That evening I sat down to read it and came across an article (Do You Etsy). It featured a very successful seller on Etsy and her story was very similar to mine. Lost in Cyber Space. I read her story and immediately went to see what Etsy was all about. I was impressed with what I saw and read and within a couple of week's I closed down my website and moved to Etsy. The rest is history; I have been there for four months and am loving it!! They make it so easy to set up shop and the forums are a wealth of information. I have learned so much and continue to learn something new every day. Thank you Etsy and fellow Etsians :)
