I am really enjoying the sneak peek of the artists behind all of the beautiful listings! The pathways info gives me a great framework for taking a critical view of my shop. Cheers, Elise from www.elisehooperdesigns.etsy.com.

Hi Merritt and Lee,

Thanks for getting back to me promptly. As you mentioned that your club membership has been fully booked, however, I would be interested in becoming a new member of the AG Team if there's space available. I believe my designs and craftmentship would definately fit in your club's standard.

My website is http://www.fuchstbags.etsy.com

Thanks again for your consideration.

Thank you for getting back to me and considering my shop.
My shop can be found at kankou.etsy.com

I create beadwoven jewelry which I feel definitely requires skills beside patience.
I also feel my creations are very original: there are other amazing beadwoven artists but the originality of my work derives from its ethnic modern feel; each of my piece tells a story. I am very proud what I create and my customers felt the sincerity I create with.
I think my pictures are clear and certtainly not amateurish but I consider them to be work in progress.
Thank you for your consideration

Hello, Artisans Gallery Team! I'd love to be considered for membership if an opening presents itself. My wire wrapped jewelry takes a sculptural approach to botanical themes--flowers and vines and I use high end stones and metals. Recently I've added metalwork to my skill set and I'm introducing a unique line of gemstone cluster embellished cocktail rings. Thank you for any potential consideration--beautiful work on this blog!

Hi everyone!

I know this is a longshot but since I'm not very close to anyone in the team to ask for a recommendation, I'm writing here... I make understated modern jewelry and I'd really really like to be a part of your team :)
Thank you!

I am a longtime admirer of most of the work that comes out of the AG Team. I don't have a relationship with any of your members in order to even hope that I might get a recommendation so I wanted to leave my information here with all of the other hopefuls.

My work is all presented in collections with overarching themes based on myths, legends, seasons, cultures, customs, and so on. I focus strongly on wire wrapping, metal clay work, and now soldered bezels. I am also constantly improving my work, presentation, and photography and in the past year have made a strong effort to step completely away from mass produced findings.

You can view my work and blog here:
