I have been selling my jewellery making tutorials through the Jewelry Lessons website since 2010 and have met many lovely people there. Sadly the site will be closing in June 2016 and no further sales will be possible. After careful consideration I have decided to reopen my Etsy shop and will be adding all of my downloadable tutorials for sale there. So far I have added fourteen jewellery making tutorials. Most are macramé tutorials but there are also some others. The process is taking a bit of time as I have to edit the original files to remove some aspects related to Jewelry Lessons and in some cases change the layout to make best use of the remaining space. I am hoping to have them all moved over by June.
Each of my jewellery making tutorials features step by step instructions and high quality colour photographs that show you how to create a unique piece of jewellery. A few of the tutorials require you to have some prior knowledge but most are suitable for beginners as they explain everything you need to know. Over time I plan to edit my older macramé tutorials to include knotting instructions in the same way the newer ones have. My macramé jewellery making tutorials also include information on how to create a simple macramé board and explanations of some commonly used terms.
The new Elderberry Arts shop on Etsy is called ElderberryTutorials and all the tutorials will be available there. Facebook pages also have a great feature that allowed me to link the Etsy shop with the Elderberry Arts fan page. This means that if you head over to the page and click on the ‘My Etsy Shop’ tab ait will display all the listed jewellery making tutorials. Clicking on any item then sends you to the Etsy site to read the full details and purchase if you wish. I will also add the Etsy shop widget on the site here, which works in much the same way.
