Hi my name is Connie Relyea, and I'm the owner of Jewels Designs and Jewelable Girls Shop. I've been crafting since I was a small child and it is like the air I breath! Over the past 40+ years I think I can say that I've done almost every type of art/craft imaginable. The craft that I love the most and I consider myself the best at, is crocheting. From the time I was 7 years old, I've been crocheting and I can say after 45 years, that I am a Crochet Artisan. Over the years I've sold my crafts through custom orders, craft fairs/shows and my brick & mortar shop. Six years ago I opened Jewels Designs and recently I opened Jewelable Girls Shop. Both sites I designed myself, from the ground up, the funny thing is that I didn't know anything about website building: marketing, promoting and advertising. I wasn't even that good at taking photos! To me that's truly amazing! I will consider myself lucky if I can create for the next 40+ years! Thank You for taking the time to read my Bio.
