We have come to the end of another month of the daily listing club, the November Nexus, we happy band of crafters, have prepped, sewn, painted, pinned, polished, knitted and so much more in the name of crafting and handmade goodness.
I am so pleased with the way everyone rallied round during a difficult month of change and flux, with a poor economic climate, we still mamaged a collective sales tally of 1091 at the latest update, there may yet be a few more sales to add to that tally, if Nexonians have not been on to the thread to update their totals, so fingers crossed we reach the magic 1100 figure.
Nexonian Feature Gallery!
I have decided to show case a mega feature gallery, something from few shops that posted on the final day's thread, please click on the pictures to be taken to the shop in question.
I hope you have liked my choices for the finale feature gallery, sorry I was not able to include something from every shop taking part.
Crafting and selling of these items is a hobby for me. I'm a working Mum, with lovely children and fabulous Hubby. I have had a passion since childhood for fossils and gemstones, and have been collecting for many years. As a family we go on fossil hunting expeditions, but there is only so much you can keep for yourself.
My Husband and I are also fans or anything oriental and have collected Netsuke for many years, both vintage and modern items, but again there are only so many that you can keep, so am hoping our passion for these wonderful items is something others might also enjoy. Netsuke ('netskei) is a small carving usually made from wood or ivory and originally developed in Japan. This form of small sculpture served as toggle in Japan for over a period of more than three hundred years, for both functional and aesthetic purposes.
I enjoy knitting and working with yarn and wool, making items from simple scarfs through to hand made handbags. Inspiration often taken from nature or by the look of how differing yarns, wool and other products work together. Each of these items will be unique and guaranteed hand made by myself.
