Wooden It Be Nice?

Ok - I will apologise straight up for the terrible pun! But I picked the title because the Handmade Artists' Forum Blog Ring feature artisan this week is Jan from JewelryByJanelle. She creates the most amazing pieces of jewellery from wood that she shapes and finishes herself. They are so beautiful to look at, and I'm certain they are wonderful to wear as well.
She also creates wonderful pieces using Swarovski, Czech and Gemstone beads with a range of different metals.
She has just recently been bitten by the Chainmaille bug and is producing some gorgeous pieces.
Jan is also very active on HAF and with the HAFteam on Etsy. She is a wonderful artisan and a lovely person. You can see her work at JewelryByJanelle on Etsy and JewelryByJanelle on Handmade Artists' Shop. You can also read her blog.
